They had inspectors at the factories to check the animals and make sure they did not have an illness or disease, but most of the inspectors did not do their jobs right. Since the inspectors did not do their job right some of the animals, that went through the process of becoming packaged meat, had diseases or viruses that no one knew about. Eventually, this meat ended up in a grocery store where anyone could buy it. So, essentially someone would have been eating diseased meat that could have been also spoiled. This led to many illnesses for working men/women in general, because most of the “working class” could not afford more high class meat, so they dealt with the diseased and spoiled meat, which often led to the people getting
His lack of self-control contributes to his excessive consumption of food, while his lack of respect is seen in his arrogance. Ignatius devours food to no end regardless of consequences, such as getting fired. He also undermines the integrity of others based on trivial matters, such as how new their clothes are. Because of these major flaws, Ignatius can be seen as a disliked character without restraint and respect for
The Pigs selling Boxer to a slaughterhouse shows that they don’t really value the other animals on the farms lives. They knew Boxer was getting old and couldn’t do much so they sold him. The Pigs are beginning to treat the other animals just Jones. They are resembling Jones because they are giving the animals low rations of food. They also began drinking beer and getting drunk like Jones did.
The fast food industry abuses the fact of animals not having the same right as humans. Factory farming mistreat many animals such as calves by taking them away from their mothers and leaving them all alone. According to “9 Fact About Factory Farming That Will Break Your Heart” from Huffpost states, “ The calves are also kept in near or total darkness and suffered from forced anemia, for no reason other than to keep their flesh pale and attractive.” This shows that workers didn’t care about calves by leaving them suffering in darkness and not being feed well which forced them to have anemia. If workers at factoring farming cared about these animals they wouldn’t treat them like this. They abuse the animals by kicking them , leave them alone,
George Armelagos and his colleagues found evidences that showed the farmers had bad health compared to hunter-gatherers due to the adaptation of agriculture. Diamond outlines the three main reason for the bad health of farmers, which includes varied diet of hunter-gathers compared to the few starchy crops eaten by farmers, the starvation of farmers due to the dependence on limited number of crops, and the spread of diseases in the crowded societies of people encouraged by agriculture. (Diamond 112) The adaptation of agriculture lead to the division of classes due to stored food and more possessions and encourage inequality of sexes as the health of women got worse due to frequenting giving birth. The hunter-gatherers adapted to agriculture due to the growing numbers of people, so they chose to increase food production rather than decrease the population. (Diamond
How would you feel people would feel knowing that they were ingesting contaminated foods? This was the case in the late 18th hundred and early 19th hundred many social and economic problems came to be in the United States. For example, one of the many problems that arose during these years were the sanitation conditions in the companies. To be more precise, food companies were getting away with many of the inspections the government would act on. Meat packing industries were becoming more unsafe everyday.
They would bring in food, illegally, to feed their children. I hate that they had to go through all this trouble and pain, just to get a small meal. It was very dangerous, because smugglers were usually shot on the spot. The rations that they got were only “10% of the human necessity.” But little did they know, their bad situation, which was already killing many of them off, was about to get a lot
The livestock also made the soil more compact causing the soil to carry less water, making the land a less inhabitable environment for plants. This resulted in the Native Americans losing their crops. They also eventually had to start raising livestock and doing other European agricultural practices because, “Hunting too became difficult. Adjacent colonial settlements eventually tried to restrict Indian hunting on English land, and such key food sources as deer became hard to obtain.” (Cronon 103). When the Europeans noticed the Native Americans starting to lack the resources that they relied on, they took advantage of it.
My source claims that poverty is a big problem in certain countries, yet most people aren't doing anything about it, they're too focused on themselves. Banksy claims that society is selfish and ungrateful. Mondays have become a big thing to be mad about anywhere, society seems to hate waking up early and doing work, yet in other countries people are dying due to lack of clean food. An argument that is linked with Idols of the tribe is society feeling like nothing is enough. Society feels that having to do tasks is just plain boring and makes life bad.
In Agnès Varda’s film The Gleaners and I, farmers are depicted throwing away thousands of pounds of edible potatoes because the supermarkets will not accept potatoes that are too small, too big, or too oddly shaped. In an interview with the farmers, Varda highlights that, regardless of the strange appearances, the potatoes are perfectly fine to eat (Varda 2000). Simply because the potatoes are not uniformly shaped, they are rejected by the supermarkets, and by extension the supermarkets’ customers, as undesirable and unsellable. In Mireille Roselo’s article “Agnès Varda’s Les Glaneurs et la glaneuse”, she criticizes the supermarkets for this, contending that the supermarkets “will only buy rigorously regular and millimetrically correct potatoes” (Rosello 3). Once again, the reverse is true.
