For instance, before the food go to waste, it require a lot of money to produce the food. Based on a study carried out in Hong Kong, people in Hong Kong spend 350 billion HKD on dining out annually but 40% of the food ordered is left uneaten (Friends of the Earth, n.d.). This situation is a good example to show the cost of the food spend by the consumer and if all people in this world spend high in food it will give a positive impact to our economy. However, when we wasted the food, we will also have to spend high cost to pay operational cost of waste disposal. In United States alone, the food that go to waste worth an estimated $165 billion (Gardiner, 2014).
The Us spent $2 billion for the atomic bombs development. The third con was it created anger. The event created a great amount of anger and animosity between the US and Japan, which actually stills exists today.

I. We consume 8,500mg of salt per day, almost all from processed food. This is only one of the many reasons people have poor nutrition. Humans tend to not know the difference between processed and real foods causing the nutrition levels in our society to drop at an alarming rate. For years this problem has been a big factor to obesity and illness.
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.
But that is not the case, increasing fishing efforts over the last fifty years as well as unjustifiable fishing practices are pushing many fish stocks to the point of extinction. Millions upon millions of people rely on fish for protein, and fishing is so much of the livelihood for millions of people around the world (overfishing). There are a lot of recreational fishermen that complain about the laws we have in place to protect fish, such as a size requirement and limit per day. These laws are put in place by the state to help prevent a species from being over fished. The definition of over fishing is to deplete the number of fish in a body of water by too much fishing.
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.
Famine is a significant detriment to optimal health and continues to affect millions of people around the world. According to the World Health Organization, famine-induced starvation can lead to a weakened immune system since it requires nutrients from balanced diet. As a result, there is a heightened susceptibility to opportunistic diseases, which can cause mass casualties. Famine also has implications for population dynamics as rates of displacement and social collapse increase as fewer people have access to critical nutrients. At present, South Sudan is suffering from famine that has affected over 100 000 people, with nearly six million more at risk.
The article, “Food Waste Is Becoming Serious Economic and Environmental Issue, Report Says,” by Ron Nixon, talks about food waste and of plans on how to stop it.

Also that there are people that go to bed hungry most days, while others are throwing away extra scraps they didn’t eat.

They also cut back on the amount of food they ate so they could make it last but, the food was such a little amount and wasn 't filled with protein it would leave no trace in their bodies. How is the Malawi famine not like the American Great Depression? The American great depression and the Malawi famine are not like each other because in the advances in technology. Another difference in the two is the amount of empathy given to the suffering countries.
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.
Morgan Spurlock, an American Independent Filmmaker embarked on an experiment of eating only McDonalds for thirty days. He documented his findings in a documentary titled “Supersize Me” As a result, Spurlock gained nearly twenty-five pounds, and his body mass increased almost fifteen percent. The reason behind Spurlock’s investigation was to identify the problem with our countries rise in obesity, largely contributed to a lack of fresh and healthy food being available. Obesity is an epidemic plaguing our country ever so quickly and one of the biggest reasons for it is many communities don’t have access to fresh food, and in many times that food if available exceeds the families budget.

It has come to my attention over the years, that Obamacare has caused a decrease in revenue for my company. Being the CEO of PYE, Obamacare has resulted in me paying more taxes, it forces me to provide health insurance for all my employees or if I don’t provide insurance for my employee’s than I would face a penalty that is up to $3000 for every employee after 30, which seems unfair and unethical. There are millions of other health care providers that my employees can get on there own at an affordable price, but making me offer 95% of my employees coverage is unreasonable. What if you were in my position and you were forced to provide insurance for others that do not want insurance at all? Obamacare believes that 30 hour a week is considered full time and this caused many businesses, including myself, to cut wages, jobs, and hours because of decrease amount of revenue generate inside the business.
