In the article, “The Pleasures of Eating”, author Wendell Berry shares his knowledge of the food industry and discusses the act of eating as part of the agricultural process.

Most Americans, according to Berry, can be categorized as passive consumers that are basically allowing food industrialist to brainwash them by means of advertisement. He argues ,“They pay, mostly without protest, what they are charged” implying that the consumers do not even question what additional cost, such as transportation, might have added to the product .The article provides an interesting perspective on consuming food and Berry shares multiple ways that the passive consumer can become more educated on food.
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).

Using facts and statistics, such as the decline in FDA inspections from 50,000 in 1974 to only 9.164 in 2006, and how the market is heavily dominated by the top four beef packing companies controlling over 80% of the market today, where the top five companies only controlled approximately 25% of the market in the 1970’s, the documentary provides reliable data to strengthen its logical appeal.
