Health Care Reform or Healthier Food? New Movie: Food, Inc.

February 2, 2010

Just yesterday, I had a discussion with a colleague who has an interest in working in government policy. He adamantly declared that instead of only focusing on health care reform, why are we also talking about what Americans are eating and ways to prevent the epidemic of disease in this country?? I second that motion; but the issue is clear. A lot of people are making a lot of money at both ends of the spectrum. They make money when we shove our mouths with their industrial, bacteria laden foods, and also later when we are in the hospitals for cancer, strokes, diabetes, etc.  Crazily enough, when we get to the hospital, they continue to shove the same nutrient deficient  food down our throats that got us there in the first place.

The only way there will be a real change, is if we as consumers stop feeding the machine and demand the right to take control of our own health. Food, Inc. a film produced and directed by Robert Kenner, seems to be a film that will argue just that, and give people a deeper understanding of what exactly it is that they are eating on a daily basis. If you are a netflix junkie, like I am, you can watch the film instantly or on DVD via Netflix!  Check out the trailer below:
