I went to see Food, Inc. last night was really good, informative, and upsetting (of course) all at the same time. The showing was sold out and the audience applauded at the end. This is a movie that everyone - EVERYONE - should watch and learn from.
The moral is that it REALLY matters whether you buy local and organic foods or not. Our LIVES are being destroyed so that we can collectively buy food at a slightly cheaper price. It's a vicious circle from which the only way out is to grit your teeth and buy the slightly-more-expensive groceries. STOP buying processed foods. They are laded with chemicals and preservatives that, while they make the food cheap, they also lead to poor health.They destroy our environment. Think you're green? Not if you buy a hamburger.
Whatever we do — no matter how tight our pocket books — we must not support these operations with our food dollars. - Food Renegade.
