Need To See Movie - Food Inc.



FOOD INC.

Robert Kenner, producer/director
Eric Schlosser, co-producer
In this day of highly mechanized food production and factory farming, we all should be aware of how our food is created, manufactured and presented. This is a great eye opening movie to let us peak inside this big bad world of food and see what we are really eating.

An excerpt from their website -

"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."

If you eat, you need to watch it!

I've heard good things about this movie. I'm half afraid to watch it because I know I'll find out about atrocities that will make me change my ways. I notice the producer is the Fast Food Nation author. OK, ok, I'm requesting it from the library right now.
