Food Inc- watch, learn, participate

Since this made it to Yahoo, I felt obliged to bring it here.

Some of you probably are aware and ahead of me on this, others may not be.

Anyway- Food Inc. wfs

I'd love to watch this but am unsure of if/when it will be released in Central IL.

Knowledge, knowledge knowledge.
Contact your small local theater and ask them to run it.

Re: Food Inc- watch, learn, participate

Looks fascinating-not opening today here in Fort Collins, it looks like. Hopefully it makes the independent theater soon. Also, hope it doesn't advocate a vegetarian diet

Re: Food Inc- watch, learn, participate

I just saw this movie tonight. It was great. It featured commentary by Michael Pollan, author of The Omnivore's Dilemna and Eric Schlosser author of Fast Food Nation. It also had a section at the farm of Joel Salatin, Polyface Farms. It does not advocate a vegetarian diet. It was more along the lines of buying local grown and staying away from fast food and even food from the regular grocery store (whose food is really just an extension of fast food).

My blood was boiling by the end of the movie. There is so much government involvement in the food industry it is unbelievable. I can't wait to get to my farmers market this weekend!

By the way, Robert Kenner (the director) was a guest on The Daily Show on July 2. If you're in the U.S. you can watch the interview here (w/fs).
