The meat-packing industries carelessness towards their workers are physically endangering them daily. “Men who used knives on the sped-up assembly lines frequently lost fingers. Men who hauled 100-pound hunks of meat crippled their backs” (Constitutional Rights Foundation). The repetitive endangerment of these businesses’ workers highlight the industry’s unnatural greed and lack of empathy. The damages that are inflicted on their workers can be critical, life-changing or even lethal.
One of the biggest food frauds in the 21st century, the investigation of the Horse Meat scandal has had a huge impact on consumer purchasing behaviour. The consumers now question the contents of different types of meat and meat products. It had a huge effect on the country with majority of the Irish population being informed about it. The investigation led to believe that it was mislabelling of products selling the public horsemeat falsely labelled as beef. Millions of ‘’Beef’’ burgers and meat products were removed from the market.
The food that we eat is simply the final product of a system of production and we cannot begin to guess what exactly it contains as it has been reformed. It is not only the consumption that leads to health issues but also the big corporate farms that cause harmful air pollution. They produce animal manure and urine that emit roughly 400 different harmful gases into the atmosphere (Schwartz, 2017). For example, around 80% of ammonia emissions in the United States are caused by animal waste. The farms also produce an unbearable smell for local residents making their daily life uncomfortable, ruining their health, quality of life and increasing the chance of people moving away.
Upton Sinclair took the themes of Waged Slavery and Social Darwinism to create this visual representation of a Jungle in the form of political machines and corrupt bosses that would abuse of immigrants that were in the search for the “American Dream.” Just like Upton said, “All art is propaganda. It is universally and inescapably propaganda; sometimes unconsciously, but often deliberately, propaganda,”(Sinclair) and indeed this art is propaganda that served it’s purpose of delivering a strong story on the behalf of the
Upton Sinclair shared these beliefs, and in 1906 he decided to help open the eyes of the American public to the horrors behind closed factory doors by publishing his book, The Jungle. Upton Sinclair uses the tragic story of a family of immigrants traveling from Lithuania to express his concern for the future of the working class of America and to sway the hearts and minds of many who were oblivious or turned a blind eye to the corruption and horror taking place beneath them. Upton Sinclair was successful in his purpose to expose the evils of corruption that were running rampant across American industries and promote a cure for this horrid disease: socialism. Starting on a high note, the characters of Jurgis and Ona are presented at their wedding. Relishing the traditions of their former home, Lithuania, the family and many guests join together for a feast of not only food but company.
climate and ozone pollution affects highly in agricultural. a warming world will increase the amount of desert in the world, increase drought in areas such as North America, Africa and Australia, and may exacerbate problems such as flooding in Indonesia and South America .Secondly War and displacement is an important factor in our current days. Fighting forces millions of people to leave their homes, leading to hunger as the displaced find themselves without the means to feed themselves. The conflict in Syria is a recent example, In war, food sometimes becomes a weapon. Soldiers will starve opponents into submission by seizing or destroying food and livestock and systematically wrecking local markets.
Animals shouldn’t have to suffer, living in the plant factory is unfair and brutal. All animals have feelings, they have a right to kind treatment, and a right to live in this world. The meat packing industry disregards animal’s emotions and their rights all together by the malicious treatment of animals. The way animals are being treated is highly unfair. Being slaughtered for their body parts and suffering just to be used for protein or an asset to humans is unbearable.

The reasons for this hunger in India are complex. 40% of all fruits and vegetables and 20% of food grains produced rot due to inefficient supply chains and never reach consumer markets. One factor contributing to the food insecurity is the fragmented supply chain and poor infrastructure such as warehouses and cold storage. The number of intermediaries in Indian food chain system is large adding to the inefficiency in the food marketing system.
