- The initial graphic played a vital role in displaying two different growths that occurred in different times. The goal of including the growth between 2010 and 2014 along with the addition of the growth solely between 2013 and 2014 was to indicate the increased growth as we move towards the future. This tactic is great for proving to the audience that there is a greater likelihood of gluten being placed into our food without our knowledge. It also includes the world as a whole which gives a great reference point for the audience to understand how other societies also relate to the topic. The vibrant color attracts the viewer to the more outstanding statistic so that they then notice the correlation to the growth of the darker bars. The primary strength of the graphic is the depth of the data included.
- Although the second graph remains in a bar style, it is greatly revised so that the audience gains a greater understanding of the data set involved with the loss of the second bar in each column. The viewer is immediately attracted to the graph as the background color differs from the paper color and the dark purple bars stands out in descending order. The simplicity of the graph is the greatest strength because it is easily understood that there is a substantial increase among many nations. This graph is the better choice as it proves a point within a matter of seconds, while the first graph requires analysis before comprehension.
- For the third graphic, I focused on the production and domestic disappearance involved with wheat throughout the entire world from 2000-2016. I chose to include a wide range of years in order to show that the overall amount has increased, despite fluctuation, which is especially evident in 2003. A line graph was utilized to demonstrate the growth in a format that is easily recognizable with traced points on each year. The colors, purple and red, compliment one another nicely while showing a sharp contrast so that the two lines may be distinguishable. Although the graph goes against my topic by showing a decrease in some years, the total outcome is that there is an increase in production and domestic disappearance. Similar to the other two graphs, it correlates with the idea that increased wheat can proportionally result in increased wheat in foods without our knowledge. This could be a great rhetorical element because of its ability to show that each year is different than the last so that efforts must be continuous to decrease the amount of unknown wheat in society. This strengthens my point about the safety of intolerant individuals and how it relates to people across the entire globe rather than solely major developed countries.
