Food, Inc.

I never want to eat again.

Reavealing and Thought Provoking

This video really shows what happens to our food. It can be very scary to know the truth!

Great

Great video for what we really put inside our mouths every day! I don't recommend this for ages 10 or under, It'll freak them out a bit.

beware

as long as you don't mind never eating meat again, i highly recommend this movie. if you are stuck on being a carnivore, STAY AWAY. i love meat but after seeing this documentary, i became a vegetarian for a month. just remember, you've been warned.

Must watch!

Everyone must watch this movie. why? because the movie goes behinds the scene to explore and expose how the food that we eat today is "manufactured" as opposed to being "grown" or harvested. Buying cheap manufactured food (canned, packaged) will have long term consequences for your body. This movie had a tremendous impact on me to the extent, that i changed my food eating habits.

Please

....don't watch this if you love animals and seeing them abused makes you sick. I watched 10 minutes of this and it literally made me sick and I had to shut it off.

Watch this to learn the truth about our food supply

Really great, brave documentary about what is really happening to our food supply. I hope everyone who gets a chance to watch this, does, as it's so important to everyone's health.

Shop locally and seasonally, especially Farmers' Markets and stay away from processed foods!

These big companies are ruining our food supply just to make money. We need to band together and vote with our dollars to say that we want healthy, safe food. It's up to us. Let's work together and it will get better. We can do this.

Worth watching

I was prepared to dislike this documentary, but I actually enjoyed it. My omnivore status passed through it unscathed, however.

One of the parts I felt was least convincing, and a bit cheap, was the mother whose young son died of E.coli poisoning from an under-cooked hamburger. Obviously companies should be careful about their meat, but everyone should know that children should not be fed raw meat since they're highly susceptible to the risks of food-borne illness. That said, we live in an era when meat is unbelievably safe, partially due to the methods the movie tries to disgust you with (treating the beef with chemicals to kill bacteria), so that bit was somewhat contradictory.

Scary !

I want to become a vegan! Or move to Europe where hopefully they dont grow food / meat this way!
