For those people who have not seen it, the movie is an absolute must-watch. You will see many shocking things including:
– How genetically-modified food is tearing up this country
– How Monsanto’s hard-ball tactics wreak havoc on the lives of farmers who try to not use its products
– How our government allows dangerous chemicals to go into our food and puts greater importance on the agenda of powerful ag-businesses instead of the health of this country
– How the USDA permits animals to be treated in the most inhumanely way possible
This movie is a serious wake-up call as to what is really going on in our food system.
Based on what you see in Food, Inc., you will walk away pretty shocked. And, hopefully, you’ll be outraged and inspired to get involved.
On another note, I recently shot an interview with Joel Salatin, one of the stars of Food, Inc. I hope to have it up next week. He’s a super-nice guy who is doing some very important work down at his farm in Virginia.
