I just hated Bill, I did not like how he reacted in various situations throughout the film. He created bigger obstacles for himself with the choices he makes, like beating up a gang member, killing the nazi supporter in his shop, and then shooting a officer. If he had made right decisions from the very beginning he would have never gotten killed. Overall I thought Bill was just a creepy and an insane guy. He had extreme metal issues, however, at the same time I also felt sorrow for him because his mental health issues is what lead him to destroy his relationship with his family, especially from his daughter, who he greatly loved.
‘He hated himself at that moment. Why was he acting and feeling this way?’ These lines show that how frustrated he was with the meeting with Mr. Dalton. He felt helpless being in front of the white man whom he hated but he cannot express his feelings as he is just a puppet in their hands. He was full of anger as he was the product of white society where his anger was a disguise in fear. When he kills Mary, he sort of feels powerful and dominating to the needs of the society.
The meat packing industry holds many serious safety and health hazards. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported that there was an average of 12.6 injuries or illnesses per 100 full time meatpacking employees, twice as high as the average for all U.S. manufacturing jobs. This number is believed to be too low as many workers injuries go unreported due to employee misinformation or intimidation. In novel Fast Food Nation, author Eric Schlosser gives the reader a behind the scenes look at what actually goes on in meatpacking plants in the chapter labeled as “The Most Dangerous Job.” During this experiment Schlosser uncovers the truth about how many injuries truly occur and how unsanitary these plants actually are. Schlosser goes into great detail of the lengths plant mangers will go to allow unsafe working conditions such as cutting in close quarters, exposure to toxic chemicals, slippery floor
They are not listed on a product’s Nutrition Facts label. But there is evidence that people who consume foods rich in antioxidants have a lower risk of diseases,” (Cernansky) Even though these foods may suggest their prevention of certain diseases or having less chemicals, the sky high prices do not seem to be worth the tiny worth of these benefits. “ According to Consumer Reports, organic foods and beverages run an average 47% more in price than conventional alternatives. In some cases, the markup can be more than 300%. That’s a hefty difference,” (Lazarus) The prices of these healthy foods can be overwhelming or just plain uncalled for when it comes to trying to be a little bit more healthy.
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.
Documentary Reflection #1 – Food, Inc. Food, Inc. is an incredible account of what really occurs in our food system in the United States. This documentary takes a closer look at the farming industry and unveils a very dark side. It is amazing to think that chickens have been re-engineered to produce more white meat and grow to their full size in 49 days compared to the usual three months. These chickens can barely stand since they cannot hold their own weight and are pumped with antibiotics due to their horrendous living conditions. It just doesn’t seem right.
Effects of Fast Food Junk food can be your last food. Junk food is the worst foe of human health, and it begins when people start advertising about fast food, and how delicious it is. Likewise, when people start talking about fast food, and how it is better than food that prepared at home. Many people are addicted to fast food because it is more delicious, convenient, and faster. However, these days people think that junk food may not affect their lives and their health.
When put in 20/20 retrospect, the more simplistic foods are actually less expensive, the whole foods specifically (WebMD)! The pre-packed foods often cost more and deteriorate a healthy lifestyle into what many Americans have fallen into today—obesity, type two diabetes, and growing health issues. Similarly, serving sizes have grown into larger portions compared to the average-sized meal thirty years ago, not helping the poor eating habits people have fallen into, not to mention haven’t taken the time to pull themselves out of (WebMD). The physical and mental draw on a healthy lifestyle is impactful and has not been this way for generations, a developing issue amongst the generations
It's cheaper to buy a can of soda than a bottle of real juice. It's cheaper to have a meal at McDonald's than to buy organic ingredients and cooking for yourself. It's easier and cheaper to gain weight and get diabetes than to stay healthy. Everything is fine. Adding to that, more and more people are confused in regards to their identity, especially gender.
Although, fast food helps people to save time and money, it may lead to some serious illnesses such as obesity, heart disease because of its low quality ingredients and it is dangerous for peoples’ healthy. If humankinds continue having fast and junk food illness related diabetes will increase to 10% in 25 years. In my point of view, government should ban selling
Paul McCartney once said,” If slaughterhouses had glass walls, everyone would be vegetarian”. At the same time, these animals are tortured and most never see the light of day and workers are underpaid, overworked, and taken advantage of but people turn a blind eye when they are told about how the animals and employees are treated. Meatpacking employees are constantly injured on a daily basis. Schlosser, in Fast Food Nation, states, “ The injury rate in a slaughterhouse is about three times higher than the rate of a typical American factory”. If the employers are being careless about the safety of their employees, does that mean they are careless when it comes to the meat?
Most humans do not think of the consequence that processed foods have on our bodies. The big name food producers have manipulated the youth by offering products that go along with their favorite television show. The farming aspect of food production is horrible. The animals are treated very poorly. The process of slaughter is unsafe and very unsanitary.
Section 11 assembles random inspections of drugs and food being brought into or shipped out of the United States. Lastly, section 12 clarifies the liabilities, as 13 states the effective date. The scandal and pure embarrassment of the manifestation of the meatpacking industry was one of the worst historical events in the United States history. Human rights and responsibilities were blatantly ignored but the industry to generate as much profit as possible. The meatpackers were
“Food Inc.” is a documentary which uncovered the truth about food industries in America. Contrary to the images they are showing to the public, animals like cows and chickens are no longer raised on the field but in unsanitary and infectious houses. Cows are forced to eat corns instead of grass, which caused them E. coli, and instead of abandoning this new technology companies just use more chemicals to erase virus out of meat. Farmers and workers are forced to work underpaid and not allowed to talk about the companies’ policies. Slaughterhouses are getting bigger and bigger, thus it is easier for virus and bacteria to pass from one animal to the other through the hand of the workers.
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.
