coli, mad cow disease and salmonella. Most factories do not care about the quality of meat they produce and that’s why many people around the world are infected by E. coli, and this disease comes from a polluted meat and can cause acute kidney failure. Every year thousands of people die in the US from E. coli which made the scientist do a research and in the article “Modern diseases on the rise of factory farming) it’s mentioned that “the scientist tested over one thousand meats from different factories and they were shocked that 60 percent of this meat is polluted and can cause E. coli” (Geer,2014). The second disease is the mad cow disease and both humans and cows are infected by this disease. This disease happens to cows when they are fed a dead Sheep mixed with straw, and human can get this disease if they eat a cow that used to have mad cow disease.
This causes heavy disease to spread around the environment due to unwholesome and unnatural confinement of living creatures. As US farming industries kill more than 30 millions bird each day and 10 billions bird in a year, this animal carnage can pollutes a land, air, and water that contains variety of diseases including bacteria, chemicals and viruses. Also, poisoned well water is a major issue on the Delmarva Peninsula which kills about 600 million chickens per year and it results 3.2 billion pounds of raw waste, 14 million pounds of phosphorous and 49 million pounds of nitrogen. Another situation happened in southeastern part of us which areas are being turned into fly-infested places by the poultry industry. The wildlife habitat is destroyed to erect new poultry houses, slaughtering plants and worker’s trailer parks.
Their customers sought to seek regulation of the meatpacking industry due to the contamination of their food. “The middle-class readers who bought the book demanded government action to ensure the safety of their food supply” (“Muckrakers” 120). Justice was attempting to hinder the vile practices of this industry through the public’s outcry. They felt threatened by the industry’s unregulated actions and needed authorities to change this. That traitorous industry underestimated the length its consumers were willing to go to fix their destructive
Overpopulation causes a lack of food leading to animals starving, and animals suffer more this way than by getting shot. This situation can be prevented by having a set number of animals that can be shot every year and regulates the ecosystem. Furthermore, when an individual buys a hunting license the proceeds are returned to the states to support wildlife. Some of the money goes towards recruiting biologists, paying wardens, and maintain wildlife habitats (Howard). This allows for ethical hunters to continue to enjoy the land.
Over the last 30 years during journeys across the world 2.5 million have died due to the harsh conditions that these animals have had to endure on the ship. Australia is world leader in export of beef, dairy cattle, sheep and goats. Then I thought why do we have to have live exports, why can’t we kill them ethically over here in Australia and export the meat. I discovered the reason that we don’t do this and we put them on a crowded and unhygienic ship is because some countries have reasons (e.g. religious) to not stun the animals before slitting their throat and letting them bleed.
However, this could not be more wrong. More antibiotics is not the answer, this will just worsen the already terrible situation. Drug-resistant infections take a huge toll in the United States and across the world. Just one organism known as, methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), kills more Americans every year than emphysema, HIV/AIDS, Parkinson’s disease and homicide COMBINED. Almost 2 million Americans per year develop hospital acquired infections, resulting in 99,000 deaths.
Dubuque Humane Society Over 7.6 million animals are submitted to human societies each year. 2.7 million of them are euthanized because there isn 't enough room for them. Millions of healthy happy animals are put down every twelve second,they deserve better. Instead of putting so many dogs down they could spay or neuter them. Then the population of dogs and cats would stop growing so much.
Seventy-three percent of animals every year are being put down due to animal cruelty. This percentage is proof of how much animal experimentation has increased in the last 15 years. This is because of the terrible care that animals are being put through, people debate about whether animal testing should happen at all. Some people believe though that animal testing is quite useful in many ways. The people that see animal testing as being useful, think that without animals, medicine and the military would not be where they are today.
However, some countries are able to control their population growth, such as London, Greece, Japan, Singapore and Israel. Many problems are caused when you live in an overpopulated city or nation to its residents, such as environmental and social problems. Daily, 25,000 people die due to hunger and 18,000 of them are under the age of 5, because their country can’t provide them with enough food to feed the entire nation. One billion people lack access to water throughout the world, because of water shortages. Another issue with water is citizens are trashing their oceans damaging the water we drink and the fish we breed.
The leading cause of death in the world is hunger. Today, around twenty one thousand children die around the world due to poverty. Although the root of the problem does not solely lie on the wealthy, the root of the problem is the improper allocation of our resources. A new study from McGill University and the University of Minnesota published in the journal “Nature” shows that in a year, the world produces enough food to feed ten billion people and that’s like 1 ½ of our total population. But still billions go to sleep hungry every night.
Uptown Sinclair’s book The Jungle was originally written to expose the working conditions within the meat packing industry. Sinclair shocked millions as he bore what it was really like behind the scenes. Employees worked with contaminated and rotting meat, which was not a health violation at the time. This eventually led to new food and federal safety laws. Most of the labor force was an immigrant, who moved to the United States with hopes of the “American Dream.” Most would say that they did not find what they were looking for.
04 Oct. 2015). The overuse of such chemicals can lead to drug-resisting bacteria that is not only harmful to humans, but can also be fatal. "Antibiotic resistant infections kill 90,000 Americans every year.” It is not only the antibiotics that are endangering humans but just the general sanitation of the way the animals are raised as
Fast food companies and meat processors are uninterested in the possible risks consumers are susceptible to when unskilled workers handle the meat. The analogy links the main idea to the title of the chapter. Schlosser has chosen to present information in this way because it emphasizes the cruelty meatpacking workers endure, they are fired right before benefits become available to them. He wants to affect/influence his readers by demonstrating to them how meatpacking industries only care about making a large revenue each year. 8 paraphrase - repetition of “blood” and “injuries”: “We wade through blood that’s ankle deep…” (171) “Indeed, the rate of these cumulative trauma injuries…” (173) Repetition Schlosser’s use of the device relates to topic and/or purpose by emphasizing the grotesque conditions not only meatpackers and cleanup crews undergo, but also the unsanitary condition in which the meat is cut.
