They point to the fact that Marion Nestle supports the notion of local eating to defend their view. While these people make a valid point they mistake her personal views from her professional opinion. For instance, when the article mentions “[Nestle] loves the mystery of years when the late corn is just utterly, incredibly good and no one can say why: it just is” the reader can see the extreme bias that leads to her view on the locavore movement as she personally supports it due to her own personal experience. In truth, she mentions that “there will be nutritional differences, but they’ll be marginal” and “that doesn’t mean it is necessary to eat locally in order to be healthy. In fact, a person making smart choices from the global megamart can easily meet all the body’s needs” (Source B).
Additionally, this excerpt definitely got me thinking about the food we eat today. These people had no idea they were eating disgusting, rancid, altered meat, so I wonder is this happening today without the people’s knowledge?

I think these concern me because I want to know what’s going into my body, and how it’s gonna affect my
The rebellion does not become a problem until she needs the corporations help to pay for her feed. The corporations refuse to save her life because of her inability to buy their items. “We’re sorry, Violet Durn...don’t feel like you are a reliable investment...check out some of the great bargains...might be able to create a consumer portrait of you that would interest our investment team.” (Anderson 247) The corporation 's rejection to aid left a passionate, determined, young girl with a broken heart and a death sentence. Violet’s story in Feed is a prime example of how sometimes, no matter how good your intentions, change and being different backfires and, essentially, leads one to sabotage

I am very interested in learning even more about the dangers of food allergies. I don’t have food allergies so, this book was very enlightening. Food allergies are extremely dangerous, and not many people think about them in this manner. Sandra explained that she had to worry about what she consumed, what she bathed in, where she traveled, and even her significant other. Sandra Beasley writes, “I had the chance to introduce myself as someone other than the girl with allergies.” (pg.226) I loved this quote at the end of the book because it shows that she overcame all the obstacles that came with her having food allergies.
As a result, the claims that she makes cannot be considered seriously to demonstrate her points on vegetarianism effectively. All in all, Garretson’s inability to demonstrate proper critical thinking skills, such as having strong reliable evidence and counterarguments, weakens her essay as a whole.

She didn’t dare to let his food get burnt; she had learned that lesson many times in the past. “Hurry up and finish, if you’re going to feed me slop, it shouldn’t take all day to make it.” She had lived with him long enough to know that he liked her food, but just didn’t care for her. She knew the food must smell good, and it was an important day for her, she wanted to make something he liked to put him in….a less bad mood. She quickly finished and made his plate and something to drink for him, and carried it the table, putting it in front of him. She stood beside him, waiting in case he needed anything.
