She recognized that cattle, like some autistic people, exhibited signs of tremendous stress and anxiety when confronted by certain visual or audio clues (Temple Grandin Biography, 2006).The employees at the Arizona ranch put the cattle through tremendous stress when sending them through the line to their death, so much that some cattle would even tip over in anxiety and drown in the water as they were walking through. With this she developed a master’s plan to design a whole new system to send the cows through an obstacle course parse, to keep them under as little stress as possible as they were being dipped into the water. "We raise them for us; that means we owe them some respect. Nature is cruel but we don’t have to be.

The inhabitants of the cities were growing, the crops were failing, and there was no proper hygiene available. These factors made the population more vulnerable to disease (In Encyclopedia of World Trade From Ancient Times to the Present,
Americans were appalled by the truth in their meat products, including how dead rats were ground together and sold as sausage, and how guts were packaged and sold as “potted ham.” When President Theodore Roosevelt read it, he was disgusted, among with other U.S citizens. This sent America into the rush to pass the Pure Food and Drug Act of 1906, which provided federal inspection of meat products in the United States. This also started the Meat Inspection Act, which required the United States Department of Agriculture to inspect all of the animals raised in order to be slaughtered and sold for people to eat.

The camera crew takes the audience on a journey to each of the food monopolies and speaks with their workers about their conditions as well as the animals they handle. This gives the audience a first-hand view at what is being done in the companies and shows the inhumane actions taken toward the animals.
