This is what they have to say about their movie:
“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.
Featuring interviews with such experts as Eric Schlosser (Fast Food Nation), Michael Pollan (The Omnivore’s Dilemma, In Defense of Food: An Eater’s Manifesto) along with forward thinking social entrepreneurs like Stonyfield’s Gary Hirshberg and Polyface Farms’ Joel Salatin, Food, Inc. reveals surprising—and often shocking truths—about what we eat, how it’s produced, who we have become as a nation and where we are going from here.”
Fast Food Inc has an unbelievable 97% rating over at Rotten Tomatoes.
Or as the New York Times said in its movie review: Meet your new Farmer – hungry Corporate Giant
“What a good thing i stopped eating meat and most processed foods a long time ago, when you see who you support by just being alive and consuming food – you have to be picky, considerate and support the little guy – the local farmers street stand next to you – if there is any and if not, create a demand for one. The western world consists of nations and millions (bilions?) of people, medicated, on drugs, unaware and walking and acting in life like they were zombies. Take a look at our so called leaders – they are being kept alive by machines, drugs and other horrible things that are strong enough to make an impact on their otherwise dead bodies and minds. These are our leaders? These people are delusional – they are not here with you in the same moment, they only react anymore. And they decide whats best for us? Thats like letting a dicabetic be the general surgeon. See the supermarkets for what they are – giant drug stores filled with chemicals to make you addictive to products. So wake up everything you have been told is a lie, none of that stuff is true and it is harming your body, mind – it is actually killing you and it is legal. Its immoral, illegal and unacceptable to question authority. Sound familiar?”
“If only we could change all that, we after all have all the power in numbers. if only we had any means of organizing ourselves – like some two-way medium or some universally connected communicational device. Like some net to connect us all. Oh…. wait… we do > big buisness you are going down.” The net generation will down an big buisness player that takes away from the evolutionary step ot the consumer to the prosumer and, that dictates just the tiniest fraction of business, that doesnt meet demands and expeactions with godspeed and that doesnt have intergrity from the ground up. This is already happening.
Phhhh. I am going down to the market to get me some fruits.
