Summarize the points made in the lecture, being sure to explain how they oppose specific points made in the reading passage.
Recently, there has been a ton of debate to demonstrate the advantages and disadvantages of eating avocado. More specifically, the author of the reading believes that eating avocado is much favorable to human beings. In the listening, the lecturer is quick to point out there are some serious flaws in the writer's claims. In fact, the professor believes the beneficial aspects of avocados illustrated in the reading passage are not reliable, and addresses, in detail, the trouble with each point made in the reading text. First and foremost, in regards to the passages, the writer puts forth the idea that avocados have approximately 20 kinds of vital nutrients that lower blood pressure. However, the lecturer disputes this point. He says that avocados contain 29kg fat which is around 300 calories that make an extra weight on an individual's body. Furthermore, extra weight is more likely to increase the risk of blood pressure. Secondly, the reading states that avocados are not only beneficial in lowering blood pressure, but also good for a healthy pregnancy. Nevertheless, the lecturer refutes this argument. The speaker specifically addresses this point when he states that pregnant ladies are better not to eat avocados because of its disadvantage of reducing milk production and the capacity of memory. Moreover, the infant's digesting system is too vulnerable to digest the avocados. Finally, the author wraps his argument by positing that avocados taste almost identical to meat. Therefore, it would help to save a lot of money, since it is cheaper than meat. Not surprisingly, the professor takes issue with this claim by contending that the price of a single avocado is equal to the number of fruits such as apples and bananas. More interestingly, growing avocados is considerably expensive. And it wastes natural resources since much water is demanded its planting. In conclusion, both writers and professors hold conflicting views about avocado. It’s clear that they will have trouble finding common ground on this issue.
