The end result are cheap unhealthy products killing hundreds and effecting millions. Look at the processed meat industry where most of the animals suffer from harmful diseases spread by salmonella and E.coli. The way chicken are grown away from sunlight and fresh air is a major concern. It took almost more than 2 months for a chicken to grow in the 1950’s and now it takes only 47 days to get a chicken which looks healthier than its counterpart. But that is not true, the growth of the chicken does not support it and causes dis-balance and is the cause behind numerous diseases. And given the way animals are treated and tortured in slaughter houses, these large giants own even the ethical part of the food chain. Well this is no longer restricted to meat industry only.
The food chain is connected and if one part of it is affected the entire food chain has to suffer. No one is left behind. And the saddest part is that, there is no authority to check and regulate the correct ways. Therefore, the intention of producing cheap food gets indeed quite costly taking into consideration the cost of ruining our environmental for the future generations. Companies should invest in making our food intake much more healthier and should stop short term gain intentions.
