The paper explores the problems facing America in terms of poor nutrition, widespread obesity, inhumane treatment of animals and the growing corporate influence on what Americans eat and how their lives are affected. The paper looks at the three books and discusses how the enormous influence on American political institutions by corporations and money must be eradicated and advertising must be banned from marketing unhealthy food to children. The paper supports the old-fashioned healthy family meal in the evening with parents discussing important issues with their children. The paper contends that these health issues must be addressed soon.
