Food Inc. provides plenty ‘food for thought’. And that is an understatement. It touches on the obesity epidemic and the soullessness of the mass-produced.
Warning, this documentary is full of disturbing content but it is our current American reality. This is a movie that is a must see for all who eat! If you are not eating organic meats,veggies and everything else then you need to learn about who and what is producing the food you eat!
Like the movie says, you have the power to change the way things are produced every time you eat. Learn where your food comes from and then spread the word.
How much do we really know about the food we buy at our local supermarkets and serve to our families?
“In Food, Inc., filmmaker Robert Kenner lifts the veil on our nation’s food industry, exposing the highly mechanized underbelly that has been hidden from the American consumer with the consent of our government’s regulatory agencies, USDA and FDA. Our nation’s food supply is now controlled by a handful of corporations that often put profit ahead of consumer health, the livelihood of the American farmer, the safety of workers and our own environment. We have bigger-breasted chickens, the perfect pork chop, herbicide-resistant soybean seeds, even tomatoes that won’t go bad, but we also have new strains of E. coli—the harmful bacteria that causes illness for an estimated 73,000 Americans annually. We are riddled with widespread obesity, particularly among children, and an epidemic level of diabetes among adults.
Featuring interviews with such experts as Eric Schlosser ( Fast Food Nation ), Michael Pollan ( The Omnivore’s Dilemma, In Defense of Food: An Eater’s Manifesto ) along with forward thinking social entrepreneurs like Stonyfield’s Gary Hirshberg and Polyface Farms’ Joel Salatin, Food, Inc. reveals surprising—and often shocking truths—about what we eat, how it’s produced, who we have become as a nation and where we are going from here.”
