Quote of the day 12 “Part of the problem is that the government’s food-safety system is underfinanced, poorly organized and more concerned with serving private interests then with protecting public health” (Schlosser 1). People are consistently getting sick because of food poisoning. Certain foods are giving people diseases like E. coli and are sending thousands of people to the hospital. Most of these people live, but there are a few who don’t survive. Food poisoning happens every year and each year the number continues to increase. The government claims that there doing something to help, but in reality there not really doing much. The government is supposed to protect the people, but instead they are letting them get hurt. I think if the government isn’t trying to help the people something serious needs to be done. The government is supposed to protect the people from harm by letting them know what to eat and what not to eat.

Unformatted text preview: If there is a break out of E. coli then the government should act immediately to find the source of the disease and try to contain the break out before a ton of people get sick. The government shouldn’t ignore private interests, but it defiantly nee sot put the citizens over themselves when it’s a life or death situation. If the health program is underfunded then the government needs to find a way to give these programs more money. Keeping people healthy should be a main concern. New bills should be put into affect forcing the government to take more action in trying to protect the people. These divisions of the government should be reorganized and have new people put into office that will actually help American citizens before thousands get sick. If the health division in the government was changed around then maybe there would be more laws and regulations that would help the spread of food diseases....
