Lifts the veil on our nation's food industry, exposing how our nation's food supply is now controlled by a handful of corporations that often put profits ahead of consumer health, the livelihood of the American farmer, the safety of workers and our own environment. Reveals surprising - and often shocking truths - about what we eat, how it's produced and who we have become as a nation.

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.
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.
