This movie is a must see for everyone!Makes me want to be a self sufficient farm in the near future! What lies we have been told and it really shows how we are controlled like a herd of sheep!
An intrduction from the website -
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.
While revealing many concerns about our food system, FOOD, Inc.also reminds us that we each have the ability to change the system through our food choices.
