Bookmark and Share

When I was browsing the just returned items at the library, I saw this title “FOOD INc.”, and then I read the sub title: “YOU’LL NEVER LOOK AT DINNER THE SAME WAY AGAIN”.  The subtitle attracted me more than the title and I borrowed it and watched the movie on the same day!.

 

Food Inc is a documentary, which exposes how the food supply in America is mechanized and controlled by the corporations that often put profit ahead of consumer, their health and the environment. Food Inc discusses some of the major issues such as using pesticides, environmental impact, food born illness, cloning, genetically modified foods, diabetes, obesity, etc with some real examples. Food Inc reveals many true stories such as “how the chickens are farmed to fatten in 45 days and grow bigger”, “the cruel manner in which animals are raised, treated and killed, etc.  If you are not aware of how some of the most popular foods are made and reaches your dinner table, then this movie is an eye opening for you. The Washington Post recommended “Everyone should see Food, Inc”.
