Read full description of the books:



so this book is turning out to be much like fast food nation.. but i thought i would post some facts about this book that really get the point across

- 4 meatpacking companies control 84% of the market (tyson, swift and co., excel, and national beef)
BUT ranchers only get 47 cents to the dollar spend on beef

- 1991 - one billion fish killed in north carolina by disease linked to runoff form slaughter house

-2004 - a 4 million pound pile of cow poop burned uncontrollably for 4 months

- 4 chicken companies control half of the american chicken market

-90% of chicken sold is no longer whole chickens but chicken that has already been cut into pieces (i.e. for mcnuggets)

- a typical chicken farmer only makes $12,000 a year

- chicken are fed (in the feed farms) anything from old pretzels and cookies covered in fat to leftover chicken parts.. making them cannibals

-in feed lots chicken gain weight so fast that if a child grew at a proportional rate they would weigh 286lbs by the time they are 6.. this usually makes chickens unhealthy and many are dying of heartattacks before they can be killed

- some chicken have trouble walking upright because they have been genetically altered to grow bigger breasts

- in 2006 9 billion chickens went through the feedlots to be killed and eaten (a chicken only lives 6 weeks before they are killed.. and all that time they never even get to see the outside)

- in slaughterhouses, 900 cattle are killed in an hour (on average).. that is 6 cows a minute

- OSHA's maximum fine it may impose on slaughterhouses for violating working conditions which resulted in a worker's death is $70,000, compared to the 27 billion that a meat company (Tyson in this example) earns a year..think about the impications
