free movie: Food Inc. showing next Saturday

I mentioned seeing Food, Inc. (here on the blog) last year. Had to go to a seedy little theater an hour away to find it, as it was the only showing anywhere around here.

Because I’m steeped in this industry (counterculture, anti-S.A.D. nutrition) and have read widely on the subject, I didn’t see anything new in the film. For most of America, though, I believe it will be enlightening.

I was a bit disappointed. The film slams modern Goliath Monsanto (deservedly), modern agribusiness that has turned our food supply into a thousand permutations of corn and soy, and deplorable poultry/livestock practices. But then it doesn’t leave the viewer with anything uplifting to really DO about the problem.

However, it’s a good first step towards getting us away from accepting the offerings of fast food, refined food, and animal products in America.

I would absolutely recommend taking your child or teen for a primer on what has happened to food in America.

I was at The Good Earth today and a reader approached me about posting this on my blog:
