References in your texts or another peer-reviewed or high-quality source required. Have you ever fasted for a day or more? Do you, or have you in the past, followed specific cultural or faith-based dietary laws? How did you experience that?

4.    How does weight-loss fasting differ from fasting for religious purposes, in terms of the meaning given to the activity? How are the different types of fasts experienced by the practitioners?

5.  Americans have an aversion to eating dogs, cats, guinea pigs and other pets, while these animals are a prized food in other cultures. Using at least 3 examples from your reading and your LN, explain how sociologists and anthropologists theorize that these culturally-created taboos have arisen. 
Could you ever imagine eating dogs, cats, or other pets?

OR

6.    Several theories attempt to explain the American aversion to eating horses. Choose two of them and explain their key provisions. Which one seems most well-supported to you, and why? Have you ever eaten horse meat? Would you?

7.    Hindu sacred texts consider the cow a sacred animal and Indian laws protect these animals from harm in nearly all circumstances. Respect and protection for cattle has become a widely-promoted and deeply-felt cultural value in Hindu society. Anthropologists and sociologists theorize several practical reasons for why this prohibition might have started. Outline these theories and evaluate them, using your texts, your Lecture Notes and your critical thinking.
