Last night, I went to go see the documentary Farmageddon, a movie that I had been hearing about for the last few months.

Farmageddon highlights the USDA’s brutal crackdown on farmers selling raw milk and how the agency’s heavy-handed, corrupt and politically-motivated ways have destroyed the lives of small, organic farmers trying to do the right thing.

The objective of the movie is not to promote raw milk, however. The objective of the movie is to get people to wake up and to start demanding change. Read more »

This past weekend I went to the Wanderlust Yoga Festival in Stratton, VT and had no trouble eating organic food the entire time. Before I went, however, it was a real concern of mine whether organic would be widely available.

Last night, I got home late and put the television on. Since there is something wrong with my cable box (I keep forgetting to call Time Warner), it was on TLC and I could not change the channel.

So, I found myself watching a show called Extreme Couponing. The camera follows very, very serious coupon collectors as they prepare for and go on a massive shopping trip to the supermarket.

Don’t think for one second that these individuals are casual coupon collectors. After all, there is a reason why TLC calls it Extreme Couponing.

They keep coupons in 3-ring binders, have elaborate filing systems, create spreadsheets of their shopping lists, bring full notebooks to the market, jump into dumpsters looking for coupons and steal coupon-laden newspapers from nearby foreclosed properties. Read more »

Tonight in NYC, I will be going to a screening of the documentary Forks Over Knives, which is being presented in conjunction with Whole Foods.

For those who do not know much about this film, Forks Over Knives highlights the tremendous health epidemic we have in the U.S. and uses The China Study as evidence that an animal-foods based diet is the reason for the tremendous sickness that we face.

The fact that Whole Foods is presenting this film is not a surprise in the least. Last year, I wrote a post which said that Whole Foods was encouraging people “to reduce or eliminate” animal-based foods.

Initially, I found this rather perplexing given that animal-based products contribute a significant percentage to their sales.

Whether you believe an animal-based diet is responsible for our health problems or not, it is irrefutable that we are a sick country and something needs to be done.
