Take a Sec... Share with your Friends!!

I had both the pleasure and disgust of watching Food, Inc.
 this weekend and it was an eye opener.  Although I was aware of most of what the film had to say, the message was really driven home as to how far removed we are from our food in our "modern society".

Filmmaker, Robert Kenner, "lifts the veil" on the American food industry exposing the industrialization of food production and the powerful companies that control it.  And when I mean control it, I mean through brute force and intimidation, they can keep farmers under their thumb and seem to be concerned only about profit, not the product or the people for which they supply.  A few scenes that bother me are the fact that farmers seem powerless to fight the large conglomerates that run the meat industry and the fact that the US Supreme Court allowed a company to patent seeds. 

I don't want to spoil it for anyone who has not watched it yet, but it is well worth the view and I would highly recommend it.  It is a bit graphic at some points and if you are tender at heart, you might shed a few tears.  One thing is for sure, you will "Never Look At Dinner The Same Way Again".  It certainly changed my points of view and we will make more changes in our choices.
