19:10:15 – The Problem

by liamdaisley

One of the big problems I have is with Confined Animal Farming Operations (CAFO) in the US. I’d like to focus on this, but I’m not convinced that my work would appeal to a UK audience.

The conditions that KFC farmers keep some chickens are can be problematic because people are funding it. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2999689/The-35-day-life-KFC-chicken-shed-34-000-birds-Documentary-reveals-conditions-23-million-birds-fast-food-chain-uses-year-kept-in.html

Presentation of advertised food and false advertising (McDonalds, Subway, Taco Bell) but it’s just not a very big problem is all.

Deficits of cola:

I believe that there is a missing element of responsibility that needs to be confronted by food companies such as McDonalds and Coca Cola.

Sugar and Addiction is problematic. In my opinion, because so few people know about it.

They have a responsibility to the animals that are being farmed and the paying consumers eating them, although to some extent I do blame the consumer.

One of the problems I have with food is knowing what the ingredients in the food I’m eating are doing to me. We have a lot more information nowadays which is great but it doesn’t explain what glucose-dextrose is doing to my body.

Right now it feels like I’m pursuing design-journalism, and like a lot of investigative journalism which is primarily gas, I was to pick an actual problem.

It can’t relate to student foods because they seem to be coping well so I’ll drop that one
