Throughout Eric Schlosser’s nonfiction book Fast Food Nation, Schlosser criticizes and reveals to the world how the fast food industry has made drastic alterations to America. In addition, he managed to motivate society to start having a healthy life. Before Schlosser draws to a close on his book, he gives his readers hope towards other “fast” food business who succeeded by serving the quality of their food and caring enough about the health of their customers. In Schlosser’s epilogue, he opens up by considering that not all food industries are the same as the previous companies mentioned throughout the book. He explains that Dale Lasater, owner of the ranch Lasater, in Matheson, Colorado, is indeed different from other food productions because he does not use chemicals to enhance the growth of his cattle, instead he lets nature be in charge.
I love the way that he end the essay by putting the problem back to whom he believe own it. Zinczenko end his argument as follow: “And I’d say the industry is vulnerably. Fast-food companies are marketing to children a product with proven health hazards and no warning labels. They would do well to protect themselves and their customers, by providing the nutrition information people need to make informed choice about their products. Without such warnings, we’ll see more sick, obese children and more angry, litigious parents.
In schools, the amount of food thrown away is overwhelming and it all just goes to landfills to just sit and rot and go to complete waste. An issue is going around is about whether compost should be allowed to be used for the environment of a school campus. Compost should be since it would help the food waste go to good, it would benefit the surrounding environment of the school, and it 'd help with the problem of landfills being over filled. In the United states, about 30-40 percent of the food is wasted. That waste ends up in landfills and rot to no use or purpose, even though those moldy, rotten tomatoes you threw out have a very good use and it can be the reason why your garden is so full of bright, vibrant flowers and plants.
Laudan used her experience in support of processed fast food when she stated that like so many people, her culinary style was created by those who scorned industrialized food and from culinary Luddites who abhorred the machines that were destroying their way of life. She refuted the notion that processed foods are a disaster by presenting evidence of the nutritional, health and time savings enjoyed around the world as a result of processed fast foods. Today, feeding a family on only natural food is almost impractical and fast food deserves all the praise. The modern world is filled with busy lifestyles
Another thing he did was the Pure Food and Drug Act and this act was to restrict foods so that businesses had to tell the truth about what was in their food with a ingredients label (which still exist today). This act would be another act tied in with economic reform, because this act reformed businesses to where they have to be more honest about their food with telling the customers exactly what is in them. But this act along with the Meat Inspection Act would also be social welfare, because it is trying to make food more sanitary for the people to eat and make people more healthy. Furthermore Roosevelt was named a Trust Buster for breaking up a lot of trusts. The first trust he broke up was the Northern Cooperation which was a railroad.
A factory farm can be better understood if you think of it as a family farm on steroids. They are all over the world injecting your food with chemicals and abusing animals. Nothing is done with the customer in mind; things are only done to generate an income. Profit is their main priority and your –and the animals, well being is left on the back burner. Theses types of farms keep the truth from the public, which is that animals are treated poorly, diseases spread like wildfire and animals are injected with
People are constantly convincing themselves that plant- based foods are enough when it comes to your daily nutrition needs, eliminating all meat from their diets. Unluckily, these individuals may be experiencing a lack of vitamins, suffering reduced brain volume, weariness, and misperception.

The minister also avoided multiple questions, talking about irrelevant content and avoiding important information such as what is the plan for the future. When Canadians were asked about what they thought about food waste, they said that producing food waste should be illegal. In Brampton a whole football stadium sized room is filled with food waste every week. Canadians were surprised when they were showed how much food waste we create. Why is Canada standing still, while the rest of the world is taking steps to eliminate food waste?
For instance he considers Joel Alatin's opinion about "vegetarian utopia" that it is supported by animal rights activists,although it is a fact that in some places people cannot grow crops because the environment is not able to do it and the author has witness this in his own country where rain does not occur enough to grow crops. "Vegetarian utopia" illustrates a place where people stopped eating meat, but then they would need enormous portions of vegetables which would be unnatural and bad for the health of the environment as farmers would use chemicals to adapt in the new increased demand which would harm the earth and all the living organisms that live upon it. With logos the author wins his audience trust and inclines them to his ideas by leading them with reasons and using
