Thus, the earlier people recognize the damage fast food is doing to our society, the easier it will be to reverse its harm. There are endless accusations that fast food and its effect on our society is the sole cause of many problems within the U.S. Fingers are pointing at the large fast food companies, but can they be proven guilty? The answer is no, and this can be proven within many lawsuits against companies such as McDonalds and taco bell.

Fast Food Nation In the past semester, we have been studying a book called Fast Food Nation, by Eric Schlosser.

The first is Billy Harwood, a white inmate who takes a job at Smithfield to save money for when he gets out of jail. The second is Wade Baker, a 51 year old black worker who takes care of his mother. Third is Mercedes Fernandez, a 26 year old Hispanic woman who is an illegal immigrant. All three work on the cut floor where the carcasses are cut. Racial categorization in the slaughterhouse is frequently (though not always) based on pheno-typical differences; that is, differences of facial characteristics, skin color, and so forth.
Why do we love one but eat the other? An ad campaign, “why love one but eat the other” has brought up some big disputes in the subways, buses and highways of Toronto.

The Rudomin family was sent to the bigger of the two buildings.
Citizens were responsible for the prohibition laws that were placed during the early 1900s. They also helped abolish child labor and helped create minimum wage.

The meat was also a big issue during this time because it was not packaged properly, which causes bacteria and infections to grow and my people sick.
We tend to believe people who we respect. Lecturing is a soft approach for Gary Yourofsky who was arrested thirteen times for random acts of kindness and compassion and banned from five different countries from entering their borders. In 1997, Yourofsky liberated more than 1,500 soon-to-be-murdered minks from the Ebert’s Fur Farm in Blenheim, Ontario. We murder billions of animals each year, and that's what Yourofsky has dedicated his young life to fighting. Actually, he knows he can't do much to stop it but he intends to raise our consciousness.
