Food, Inc . . . a great education!

Okay, so it’s been awhile since I last put something out into cyberspace, but let me tell you, I have a great tip now!

For those of you who haven’t seen it, you have to check out the documentary “Food, Inc.”  It’s brilliantly directed by Robert Kenner and features investigative journalists Eric Schlosser and Michael Pollan.  Just as a quick side note, if you haven’t read Schlosser’s Fast Food Nation and Pollan’s The Omnivore’s Dilemma, you should seriously consider it after watching this movie.

Personally, I’m not one to jump on every conspiracy issue that comes along.  My take is you should be educated and then you can make your own call (and make your own decisions from a place of knowledge and understanding).  That being said, you can’t help but want to do what the film asks of you in the end credits . . . to use your vote and know you have the opportunity 3 times a day to make a difference.  I’m saying no more than that for fear of giving too much away!

We’ve been educated in this country (and any country, really) to believe what we’re told by special interest groups, corporations, the govt, etc, so this side of the story where it comes to our personal fuel needs to be heard.  What goes on in the world of Food is anything but straightforward.

So, check it out.  It’s a great education, but certainly not for the squeamish . . . you may want to forgo the popcorn with this one!
