1 Emily Bennett Food Inc. Reflection 16 March 2015 After watching this movie I was sick to my stomach because I didn’t realize what meat packing industries were doing. This movie had many examples of hazardous fast food and how industries take over and control what Americans eat. The workers at many of these industries are treated exactly like the animals that are being slaughtered are treated. Many farmers that work for these industries refuse to let interviewers inside the coop because of the conditions that these animals are raised in. In addition, companies don’t want farmers telling where and how this food is processed because they don’t want to scare the people away. The animals are given medicines that induce the speed of growth. On average, a chicken now can be “grown” in 49 days and these chickens are also redesigned to have larger breasts that way they can produce more meat for consumers. These chickens are grown in the dark and sometimes never see sunlight until the day comes that they are shipped to the industries.
