A quote in book IX was, “Nohbdy’s my meat, then, after i eat his friends. Others come first. There's a noble gift now.”. (400) This quote creates an effect which is building up the tension between Polyphemos and Odysseus.

Because this book is dated, I would love to see Eric Schlosser write another book detailing changes that the fast food industry has made sense the release of this book. For example, many fast food places (McDonalds specially) have included apples, salads and chicken options to their menus.

In the articles: " 'How the Taco Conquered America ' and 'Holding on to heritage before it slips away, '" It is referred to a couple times that when dishes spread to America that they sometimes change. For instance, in the articles, it says that things are sometimes added to dishes, such as meat to Italian dishes or crispiness to tacos. These things can spawn from taboos, or just plain logic.

As humans become more civilized, many starts to think about moral consequences of food choices for humans themselves and for other animals or perceive that eating some specific kinds of food is morally and naturally incorrect.

Followers may follow people because they are doing something they like, but you can also force them to listen and strike them with

As fads and trends come and go, there is one certain topic that always stays relevant--food. Whether it be new recipes or tips or restaurants, cooking and cuisine are two of the most popular subjects in America. Many people fret over “revolutionary” diets or organic recipes, yet others fail to actually track down the origins of their foods. Because of this, I did not hesitate when choosing a book. My curiosity pertaining to food got the better of me and I was overwhelmed by this burning desire to find out how our meals are grown, created, and end up in our homes.

Surprisingly, even foods which are supposed to be quite healthy can lead to sickness if not properly prepped. For example, fresh vegetables and salad greens need to be washed prior to being consumed, and sprouts should be cooked prior to being
Joseph Pace’s article “Let’s Go Veggie” is a great example of an author using bias information to persuade the reader to become a vegetarian. Pace’s overall argument is that not eating meat will improve a person’s health, animal treatment, and the environment Pace demonstrates all his claims in a cause and effect form backed by many studies.
