Food, Inc.

A few years ago a dear friend of mine encouraged me to read "Fast Food Nation" by Eric Schlosser. I began reading it was disgusted, and my dog ended up eating the book so I wasn't able to finish reading it. I had heard about the movie "Food, Inc." and since we signed up for Netflix I decided to go ahead and put it on the queue to watch. I'm going to go ahead and say I am absolutely horrified by what commercial companies get away with putting in our food.

Not only is it disgusting hearing about how these companies are feeding animals in an unnatural way so that they develop bacteria like E-coli, but they are treating their workers poorly as well and are allowed to get away with it.

Needless to say, I am going to start changing not only how I am eating, but what I am eating. And I encourage you to check out this movie!

Just watched the movie "Food, Inc" and even though I knew a little bit about the crap that goes on in the food industry, this made me sick.

It is just interesting to see the effects spread to the health of people, the environment, and the exploitation of hard working Americans.

Thanks for recommending the movie.
