Samantha Rimkus pd. 3 Epilogue: Have It Your Way ?Nobody in the United States is forced to buy fast food; The first step toward meaningful change is by far the easiest: stop buying it. The executives who run the fast food industry are not bad men?They will sell whatever sells at a profit.? pg. 269 ?Their philosophy of cattle ranching is based upon a simple tenet: ?Nature is smart as hell.?? pg. 255 ?Lasater finds it hard to justify feeding millions of tons of precious grain to American cattle while elsewhere in the world millions of people starve.? pg. 257 ?The annual cost of obesity alone is now twice as large ad the fast food industry?s total revenues.? pg. 261 This quote shows that people who want to change the way that America looks, and eats is to stop buying the fast food products. Also, I don?t believe that the executives of fast food industries are not bad men, because they are and I believe that if they truly cared about America, and not solely on the profits of their industry, they would change and make it less hazardous to people to enjoy their meals. I believe that this guy is right. If you let nature raise your cattle without added growth hormones, or added other things, then you will end up with a really good group of cattle that will, in fact, bring you profit, despite what other ranchers think about it. This is because more and more people are going towards the organic, and are not buying things with the hormones anymore. I like this Lasater guy because he knows what he?s talking about. I agree with him totally that people should start caring more about the starving people in third world countries more than on the fat and obese people here in our own country. I believe that people who feed their cattle high-priced grain, while thinking of how much money they will make off of the cattle are selfish and murderers. This is because they are taking away from the stock that could potentially go to other starving people who need it more than a bunch of stupid cattle need it. And these people who aren?t getting food are dying. This quote shows how obesity is taking over our nation. Also it shows the devastating and life-threatening issues that are associated with fast food, and eating fast food multiple times a week. ?If McDonald?s were to demand higher wages and safer working conditions for meat-packing workers, its suppliers would provide them.? pg. 268 This quote shows that McDonalds has a lot of power within the different meat-packing factories and could make some serious changes if they really wanted too. But instead McDonalds is run by a bunch of selfish people who only want to make the highest profit possible and don?t care about anything else.
