Food Inc Review

November 09 2009

So I finally got a chance to sit down and watch Food, Inc.  For those of you who haven't heard of it yet, Food, Inc. is a documentary by filmmaker Robert Kenner that lifts the veil on the nation's food industry, exposing the highly mechanized underbelly that's been hidden from the consumer with the consent of the government's regulatory agencies, the USDA and the FDA.  The film explains how the food industry is controlled by a small handful of very large corporations and how these powerful corporations put profits ahead of consumer health, the livelihood of farmers, the safety of workers and our environment.

The film was a bit graphic at times but I really enjoyed it and think that it is a definite must see for anyone who cares about what they are eating and putting into their body.  I know for myself, that I will definitely be thinking a bit more before buying my next bulk package of plump boneless chicken breasts, or barbecuing some big fat juicy steaks or slicing up a beautiful ripe tomato in the middle of winter.  

Anyways, you can check out the first few minutes of the movie below and if you get a chance, I would strongly recommend that you go down to your local video store and pick it up!
