USDA has repeatedly purchased meat from companies that have been involved in major bacterial outbreaks. A handful of children have been sickened because of this. To make matters even worse, the USDA buys the cheapest meat it can get, leaving the meat highly susceptible to having harmful diseases and pieces of bones. Even fast-food restaurants have higher meat standards than the National School Lunch Program ((NSLP)USDA provides the meat for the NSLP). Lastly, chapter nine notifies people that kitchen sinks aren’t as clean as they may think.

In week 1, the first stock I bought was Yum, which owns Taco bell, KFC, and Pizza Hut. I thought the stock would turn a profit for me, but I actually lost a decent amount of money.
A specific unpleasant picture of this thing called “taco meat filling” began to start a downward of comments, and online criticism had begun. This matter was unforeseen as taco bell was not warned about this before the class action suit was made public.

The meat industry is one of the largest industries in the world, however, it is one of the leading cause of millions of illnesses and deaths every year. Because inspecting meat for foodborne pathogens is a costly, timely and difficult task, meat companies are willing to barely meet the government 's standards in order to save money. This behavior is unacceptable because millions of people are getting sick every year from tainted meats. The longer the country continues its ignorance about the meat industry, the worse the conditions are going to become. The only way to improve conditions is to have transparency within the industries.

Some people say that fast food is just mouth watering but they don’t know that too much could lead you to a heart attack . Caesar Barber had a heart attack,after he gained 100 pounds he started weighing 300 pounds. It was all because of New York city’s McDonald’s, Burger king, Wendy’s and KFC which he went 4 or 5 times a week. Later on he sued Fast Foods restaurants which I thought was over the moon ridiculous. So I think it was Caesar barbers fault that he had his heart attack.

This disease has had outbreaks in Europe and North America. In England, “100,000 cases were confirmed by 1993, 5 million cattle were slaughtered and dozens of people died of the deadly human form of the disease, which is thought to be contracted from eating tainted meat” (Mother Earth News). Following this outbreak the United States temporarily stopped the imports of European beef, but it is believed that some products still passed through ports. The outbreak in England is an example of the result of using the now banned but poorly policed practice of feeding sheep, deer, or cattle meat and bone meal to cattle even though cattle are not omnivores.

The other reason colonists died because fish were only present during spring and early summer which is why they had no food during winter time. That is the reason colonists died by starvation.
A few days later, the other goldfish from the fair died and then my dad went back to the completely dusty store to buy some more fish. I’m not so sure what color they were (what can I say it’s been like 4 years), but I do know one of them… WAS BLACK. Dun, Dun, DUUUUUN! Anyway, the black fish was actually mean. It bit one of the fish, so that one died, and the third fish (the yellow one that was after the first goldfish that died) jumped out of the water and landed on the carpet and died because of that stupid black
