problems with the modern, industrialized food system in America (and the rest of the world)

Write an argumentative paper which does three clear things for the audience. First, it must critique one single element of the food system. Second, it must identify an entity/culprit who is to blame. Third, it must provide a solution to at least part of the problem you uncover in your research.
