The Food Industry… worst than the Tobacco Industry?
I went to watch the documentary called Food Inc., which I will have to HIGHLY recommend for everyone to watch.
The movie presented a lot of eye-opening facts about this country’s food industry. I hope everyone is already aware that the food we are eating these days are hardly manufactured to be actually nutritious. I know a lot of people are already aware of the animal abuse that is going on with our cows, pigs, chickens, etc. I know everyone is aware of something that is “wrong” in the food industry, but we all tend to turn a blind eye a lot of times.
Heck, I know I do! I love food to the umpteenth degree and I’ll shovel anything in my mouth as long as it tasted good! I’m guilty of financially serving these corrupt food corporations!
After watching this movie though, I can no longer completely feign ignorance to the truth and what is REALLY going on with the production of our food. The inhumane treatment of both animals AND people.
It’s not even just about our meat products– even our greens and everything else is affected and tainted. If not with e coli, it’s affected by horrifying greed and corruption. The utter carelessness from the people making all the money and to what they are feeding us– and how our farmers are truly and sadly affected by the crisis.
Eating “cheap” has a price, people. We have kids dying from e coli on a regular basis. That should NOT be the case in the 21st century. We are moving backwards and all because a select handful are making billions feeding us absolute shit.
I can’t present all the facts myself in this blog entry, but I just hope to convince more people to go and watch this documentary if it happens to be playing close to you. There is a feeling of enlightenment at the end of it. Trust me. You WANT to know where your food is coming from.
