Last night my husband and I went to see the film Food Inc.. The film is a inside look at our food industry. It is very compelling, educational and disturbing. The film won rave reviews in all the major publications and was released on a limited schedule… I thought I would have to wait for the film to come out on DVD but fortunately and to my surprise it is playing at the Flower Hill Cinemas… yeah! right in my backyard. Click on the link below to view the trailer… I encourage you all to see this film and use your buying power whenever you buy food to ensure you and your family stay healthy and put quality back on our market shelves.
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
