I read omnivore's dilemma by Michael Pollan reading about food and me to my food tracker. One of things i mostly eat is pork and i found out that everything is made out of corn and we could be made out of it. I asked myself,’’are we made out of corn?’’ This quote reminds me of watching the omnivore's video and both in the video and book say that everything we eat is made out of corn.I made this connection because if everything is made out of corn and we are what we eat, that would mean we are corn. Making connections is an important because it can help understanding the concept.

I’m learning more about why is our food system bad? Right now, what I’m wondering about is how is everything made out of corn? I've been reading The Omnivore's Dilemma by Michael Pollan, and it seems like cows and pigs are most likely "made out of corn" because they eat it before they were killed. So to me, it would bee more like corn eating corn. Although farmers feed animals corn, this is kind of confusing to me.

I just started reading the Omnivore’s Dilemma,and my first impression was it is kinda a good book to know about food. At first when it said it would change my life, i was not quite sure about that. But once i found out that every food was made from corn, i was amazed, it never knew that.

How can we stop domestic violence? Make workshops, more shelters, help victims.

I think domestic abuse is on the rise. About 85% of women are victims of domestic and 15% of men being abused. And,many women die from domestic violence.

Domestic violence is domestic abuse that happens to women everyday. A lot of women live in a abusive relationships. There are many news stories and articles about it.
