Another good Documentary
Brad and I watched a Documentary called King corn! This is another one I think everyone should watch,Its an eye opener.It shows that almost everything we eat has some form of corn in it. Thats why american's are so obese and that Diabetes has risen in this country dramatically!! I'm really going to be watching what I buy at the grocery store from now on! Most people assume that a chicken nugget is just a piece of fried chicken, right? Wrong! Did you know that a McDonald's Chicken McNugget is 56% corn? If you want to know what’s in your food and how its grown, rent King Corn. This documentary exposes the Crop's Ubiquity and Potential Harm.
Americans need to start growing their own food if they can, or at least be buying if from farmers markets. They stated in this show that most iowa farmers can't feed themselves like they could back in the day.Why? because almost all the corn that is grown cannot be digested unless processed. Pretty scary! So basically if grain farmers had to feed themselves they couldnt Like they could 30 years ago where almost every farmers grew and raised everything they ate! I think people need to get back to that way of life.
