Book Reflection #1 – Salt Sugar Fat Michael Moss takes us into the dark world of the food industry in his book Salt, Sugar, Fat. These food giants know that they have the population hooked with a concoction of salt, sugar, and fat that makes food addictive and tasty. Starting with sugar, I always knew that sugar was addictive and have personally struggled with complete elimination. However, reading about how they use children to taste test food was completely appalling. They are addicting children young and creating lifelong consumers, until they develop diabetes at a young age.
The two brothers have been fighting for many years in order to clear their mother’s name. They both admit that their father was indeed a Soviet Union spy. They too believe that he passed along secrets about the atomic bomb research in the United States (Washington Post). The jury on the other hand after executing both Julius and Ethel Rosenberg had claimed that Ethel Rosenberg might have been innocent after all ( New York). Due to evidence that had surfaced after the breakup of the Soviet Union and declassification of Venona, suggests that Julius Rosenberg did in fact pass atomic secrets to the Soviet Union (New York).
Good post Mayelin, I 'll say that price gouging is nothing new for Monsanto. Time and time again they 've been shown to only look out for their interests, not those of farmers. Brazil is hardly the first country to suffer from Monsanto 's greed and "frankenfood" experiments. The mass suicides in India stand still stand as the very worst that Monsanto 's responsible for, but that 's mainly because the death toll is in the thousands. I will say that it 's about time countries took a firm stand against Monsanto and just deny them the opportunity to exploit
Robert Kenner shows in his film that corporations only care about the end goal of producing the product, not the food nor the workers. The industry acts as a double edged sword. The products the corporation yields to feed the citizens are not quite the healthiest. Food Inc. displays the grinding of the meat and several ammonia cleanings. The traditional way of industry that many people attest to is contrary to reality.
Despite that, they’ve managed to walk away unscathed from lawsuits and fair compensation— all for the sake of money and power. The world’s agriculture is a monopoly. At a closer glance, companies like Monsanto, an agrochemical and agricultural biotechnology corporation, have been ruthless against

Food is where a lot of this weight loss comes in too,may it be healthy or unhealthy, and just like exercise has advantages and disadvantages so does the food we put into our bodies. In today's time 'fad diets' are extremely popular. Fad diets are described as diets that promise fast weight loss and are usually an unhealthy and an unbalanced diet as food groups are cut out in order to lose weight as quickly as possible. A diet like this is one that I explored, called Banting which was discovered by Tim Noakes. This diet consists of a high fat, high protein diet and near to no crabs or sugar.
Though there are multiple other sides to the Manhattan Projects that get left untold which Kate Brown in her novel, Plutopia, has decided to focus on the less broadcasted factors of the Manhattan project. She presents the American labor force who were left dangerously uneducated about their job that would later prove detrimental, and also connects the Soviet and American competition to create atomic weapons as essential to the success of the United States atomic bombs.

The confederate flag is starting to be banned from making a profit form some of the most local places we purchase our items, such as: “Walmart, Sears, Amazon, e-Bay and other retailers will no longer sell Confederate merchandise” (Kristof). These are the biggest companies that are not allowing the sale of the confederate due to the controversy, which can lead these companies down the hole if they are not careful because people do get mad about this kind of stuff and this could cause a decrease in income if the pro-confederate flag rioters ever broke out and cause damage to these companies because of what they believe in. They have every right to know what they want, and making these big manufacturers not sell a good that has been he for a lifetime is quite ridiculous.
The meat industry wants the public to know as little as possible about what goes on with their meat. They give the American public the false idea that their food has been properly cared for its entire life, when in reality the animal was likely given many hormones, lived in a very cramped space and quite possibly never had seen daylight its entire life. Because they try and keep the process a secret, many conditions in the factory could be unsafe. This is why it is vital for slaughterhouses to be more transparent so the conditions are actually safe and people are not just given the falsehood idea that it is. If a light is not shed on what is going on behind closed doors, conditions will only worsen because “most companies would not err on the side of safety without a potentially substantial negative impact on profits” (Simon
