1. First continue with the essayresearch on a “Thread”Choose a particular chapter or chapters, or a particular thread of inquiry, such as the cattle industry, the poultry industry, the hidden costs of industrial farming, local vs. industrial organic farming, fast food, the ethics of eating animals, the meaning of food in our lives, etc. (topics thanks to Professor Mikolavich).Analyze this topic as Pollan presents it in The Omnivore’s Dilemma and draw upon two reputable outside sources (ideally from the library or library electronic databases) to further develop on this topic. This topic requires two outside sources in addition to The Omnivore’s Dilemma. At least half of your essay should draw upon and analyze material from The Omnivore’s Dilemma, such as illustrations of how “the health of these animals is inextricably linked to our own by that web of relationships,” ecological connections and the food chain (81). Your overall analysis needs to be organized like a conventional, unified essay—with an introduction, thesis that ties together your major points, analysis of quotes from the texts, and a conclusion restating and tying up your thesis.2. Then:Attach a copy of your Works Cited here as well as at the end of your final essay. If you used any outside sources, also attach a copy of one page from each outside source here, labelled so that I can tell which one it is. Note that for Choice #2: Research on a Thread, you are required to have two outside sources, but not for the other ones. For all three essay topics, cite The Omnivore’s Dilemma. You can scan or upload a picture of your pages. 3. Note on Essay: In regards to your final essay, please write a “Note to Jeannie” that describes your process for writing the essay: What worked well for you? What didn’t work so well? What would you do differently if you could? Please mention some specifics about your essay–your introduction, for example, or a sentence you liked in one of your paragraphs, or something you think is still choppy or messy from your conclusion and why (one paragraph double-spaced). 4. Finish the final editing sheet.

Ethics in eating animals
Ethical considerations towards protection of animals have not been wholly applied in the
research fields and the human food chain. The essay focuses on the unethical side of meat
consumption and evidence supporting the existence of unethical measures towards animal
production and the impact to the environment. There have been several arguments based on
environmental disadvantages by consuming red meat and their health impacts like causing
different types of cancer (Gruen 2015, p. 17). Another topic that has limited consideration is the
ethics of eating animals. Christine Korsgaard is a professor of philosophy at Harvard University
and affirms that meat production is inefficient for the growing human population,
environmentally harmful and worse for human health (Ethics of Eating Animals 2014, p.3).
The seventeenth chapter by Pollan illustrates the unethical side of eating animals by
indicating that consumption of meat ‘has become morally problematic, but only for individuals
who think about the trouble.” The cultural mainstream has received numerous concerns about the
rising vegetarianism and the need for animal rights despite that human have been eating meat for
the past thousand years. The suggestion by People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals provides
substantial reasons as to why humans should doubt eating meat based on our morals and soul
(Pollan 2006, p. 307).
Additionally, the cultural norm is another suggestion that extends the moral consideration
of other species. Pollan (2006) draws information from Descartes who claimed that animals were
created as “mere machines that are lacks feeling and thoughts. However, the author goes ahead
Heng 2
by providing a moral objection to the statement. Humans tolerate the schizophrenia nature
because the life of an animal like a pig has been shifted out of view (p. 307).” Some people are
not aware that these animals feel pain and their only consideration is feeding on them contrary to
what they do to their dogs during Christmas. The author further draws information from Frank
Perdues, John Berger and Peter Singer suggesting that pigs should be treated similarly to other
animals just like the dogs (p. 307). To conclude, the fallacy that allows human to kill animals is
the concept that they are different from us contrary to the ethical consideration set aside by
Pollan. Animal rights activist should brace themselves by raising concerns about the physical
pain and emotional stress experienced by animals.
