“Food, Inc.”

A doctor recommended I see this movie. Now I understand why. It'll open your eyes to why there's an obesity epidemic in the United States. Big business has invaded the food chain and is growing more food, faster and cheaper than ever before. While it's good for business, it has unintended consequences on our health and the health of our planet. Food, Inc.” lays it all —exposing how factory farming is reducing diversity, lowering nutrition, causing environmental damage and encouraging E coli and salmonella outbreaks — without any of the histrionics of a Michael Moore production. Even still, it'll make you look at your food choices in a whole new way. Which led me to tweet: Food, Inc.-If you only knew what you were eating, it would make you sick. 8.5 (out of 10)
