That is why when you go to the supermarkets, you can also observe that not all food being sold have labels wherein nutritional facts and other information about the processing can be located.
This is because if the companies write everything on the label, they let consumers read all about it and the consumers might not want to eat it. One point shown in the movie is that companies even control the farmers. In the film, most of the farmers that are working on a big company refused to be interviewed or to give specific information.

They grow chicken in 49 days compared to the usual 3 months. They just want them to get into the processing. With this, food become more dangerous and wastes are being emitted. That is why, rates of death caused by E coli, Salmonella, Type 2 Diabetes are also increasing. When these animals are exported to the different parts of the world, and are taken by the consumers, these diseases will also spread throughout that will affect the health of the consumers.
