Other Trillion Dollar Industries That Are Almost Untouchable By Politicians – Big Agribusiness

  • Big Agribusiness (pesticides, GM foods, preservatives, and taking the nutrients out of the soil.)
  • Inhumane treatment of animals meant to produce meat.
  • Goals of Big Agribusiness:
    • High yield cheap farming
    • Long lasting (pesticides and preservatives) shelf life.
    • More effective, genetically modified foods. For example, because wheat is sprayed with roundup to kill other plants, they have genetically modified it (with bug genes) to withstand the roundup.
    • Rapid turnover which depletes the topsoil making food less and less nutritious.
