We often tend to give the finger to those health freaks who constantly nag about eating right, and quite frankly, yes it can be annoying as shit, but the reality of life is that our bodies are indeed major temples of our existence… and when neglected, we’ll slowly come crashing down like one of those towers during 9/11.
“Food, Inc.” is a detailed documentary that caters the human mind, body and soul with a look into how our land pretty much poisons us on a day to day basis with support by our own government and most of all our own ignorance. Living in a capitalist country has it’s positive side, but for sure it’s negative reflects even stronger and scarier when in the end it’s all about making a buck and keeping us blind and uninformed. One things leads to the next and the links between malicious intent added with eyes wide shut causes a very disturbing outcome.
We all know eating can be one dangerous business. Don't take another bite till you see Robert Kenner's Food, Inc., an essential documentary that is scarier than anything in the last five Saw horror films. Autobots or Decepticons have nothing on ears of corn when it comes to transforming into mutant killers. Kenner keeps his film bouncing with humor, music and graphics. Just like the ads that shove junk food down our faces. The message he's delivering with the help of nutrition activists, including Eric Schlosser (Fast Food Nation) and Michael Pollan (The Omnivore's Dilemma), is an eye-opener. High-fructose corn syrup and its friend the E.coli virus are declaring war on national health, and federal agencies, lobbied by Big Agriculture, ain't doing a thing to stop it. Reason? Profit$! The movie offers solid alternatives. If the way to an audience's heart is through its stomach, Food, Inc. is a movie you're going to love.
With that said… I’m hungry! Time for some good Colombian food.
