Food Inc – some documentaries you just cannot afford not to watch

In the award winning documentary (barely two minutes into this and I guarantee you – you will not be able to tune off!), Food, Inc – moviemaker Kenner peels the lid off the tin on the global food industry, exposing the highly mechanized underbelly that’s so cleverly hidden from most of us with the complicity of regulatory agencies like the food police and the FDA. 

Kenner asserts food supply is now controlled by only a handful of corporations that often put profit ahead of consumer health, workers safety and our own environment. Food, Inc. reveals surprising – and often shocking truths – about what we eat, how it’s produced, how so much of our assumptions about what we regularly see in NTUC and Seng Shiong is just pie-in-the-sky fantasy.

Trust me after this, your view of food in general will go through changes like I cannot even begin to describe. I want you all to pay special attention to Part 5 at around 4.51 minutes, this is something that I am going to share with a group of super rich women in the Siglap read club – you see – I do not want the same thing to happen to Singaporeans – so I am going to wear my tightest jeans and I am going to talk to these ladies to see what we can do.

I am taking this holiday season to catch up on some of the really great documentaries that I have been hoping to chow down – I hope you scroll to the first part follow through to complete the series on Food Inc – Enjoy.

Thanks Catherine the Cat forwarding this to me, meooooooooow!
