Food, Inc. (trailer)

1 Comment

How much do we really know about the food we buy at our local supermarkets and serve to our families?
In Food, Inc., filmmaker Robert Kenner lifts the veil on our nation’s food industry, exposing the highly mechanized underbelly that’s 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, insecticide-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.

    we have to keep growing our own vegies,and keep the seeds each year,you can farm your own meat,rabbits,chooks,but it will not go well in the future when we realise that we can not treat animals like comodities any more,killing animals carries a cost,it creates bad karma,and we need to stop and join the earth in respect for all life,and become vegetarian.We will be forced to eat more responsible,to survive.As all foods will become toxic,so we must learn to eat only good food,and much less of it.
