Transcript of The One Chain to Rule Them All- The Industrial Organic Food

Considered More Healthy
On the first page of the article Behind the Organic Industrial Complex by Michael Pollan, it says the benefits of the chain. “… a product labeled organic is more healthful and safer, more wholesome…”
In the article Behind the Organic Industrial Complex it says “Notice, too, that the milk is now "ultrapasteurized," a process the carton presents as a boon to the consumer (it pushes the freshness date into the next millennium), but which of course also allows the company to ferry its milk all over the country.”
Food will not have harmful chemicals
On pg 5 in The Omnivores Dilemma it says “… but with only natural fertilizers, and natural bug and weed control”
As a result of that these organic products are finding themselves in chains like wholefoods.
Big Supermarket chains
The third reason is that it is better for the environment.
Industrial manure like this can pollute the air because of all the toxic chemicals.
The One Chain to Rule Them All- The Industrial Organic Food Chain.
Reason 2-It is still able to keep up with a growing population.
The local sustainable food chain, may be healthy but they are limited to a small range. The industrial organic is good because they can transport all around the globe.
On pg 5 in the book it says “This food is grown on large industrial farms… It is sold in the same way as industrial food.”
This is a big advantage, people can get healthy food in remote places like Alaska or Africa.
Reason 1-It is healthier for you
In the article Food Babe Investigates: How Food Companies Exploit Americans with Ingredients banned in other countries it says that since food is medicine, it won’t work if stuffed with all sorts of chemicals. “Food is medicine, and plain and simple, if our food is sick (filled with GMOs, chemicals, additives, artificial ingredients, and/or carcinogens), collectively we as a country are going to continue being sick.”
Your meat is not dirty!
Industrial CAFOs feed animals GMO corn, with growth hormones and antibiotics.They keep them in tight spaces. Industrial organic CAFOs give them more room, and feed them organic corn, with no additives.
They use certain methods to preserve the freshness of the product.
In the article Understanding CAFOs and Their Impact on Communities on page 3 it says “Emissions from degrading manure and livestock digestive processes produce air pollutants that often affect ambient air quality in communities surrounding CAFOs.”
Since the organic CAFOs do not use this their manure can get used as fertilizer.
In the article Understanding CAFOs and Their Impact on Communities it says “The most pressing public health issue associated with CAFO stems from the amount of manure they produce. CAFO manure contains a variety of contaminants’.”
The industrial cattle are fed GMO corn, with growth hormones and antibiotics,so they get sick and their manure is toxic.
In conclusion, I think the best food chain to feed America is the Industrial Organic food chain.
Even if it might be healthier than the industrial food chain, in terms of transportation it uses alot of fossil fuels.
In the article - the Industrial Organic Complex it says “We were shipping food across the country; using diesel fuel—we were industrial organic farmers.”
That may be true, but we help the environment by not processing the food before.
