The best way to sum up this movie is an excerpt from Roger Ebert

I thought this was a fantastic documentary and really woke me up. It makes me sick to my stomach on how the corporate world/government treat us. (Thank God I'm mostly a fish eater).This review doesn't read one thing like a movie review. But most of the stuff I discuss in it, I learned from the new documentary "Food, Inc.," directed by Robert Kenner and based on the recent book An Omnivore's Dilemma by Michael Pollan. I figured it wasn't important for me to go into detail about the photography and the editing. I just wanted to scare the bejesus out of you, which is what "Food, Inc." did to me.
It's times like these I'm halfway grateful that after surgery I can't eat regular food anymore and have to live on a liquid diet out of a can. Of course, it contains soy and corn products, too, but in a healthy form. They say your total cholesterol level shouldn't exceed your age plus 100. Mine is way lower than that. And I don't have to tip.
Ever wonder why Veggies are more expensive than most menus at a fast food restaurant? Over 30% of our land is corn! 80% of what we eat comes from corn. Our cattle has been tricked into eating corn for God sake. Why? because it's cheaper to produce.
Wonder why we have outbreaks of E coli? Watch this film.
Wonder why cancer is ravage in this country or why Americans are getting fatter by the day? Watch this film
Wonder how and why it now takes days to raise a full blown chicken? Watch this film.
Love steak and Burgers? DO NOT WATCH THIS FILM.
It's all about profit baby and our Government should be ashamed of themselves.
I HIGHLY recommend every single person watch this film. It's a real eye opener. The picture quality for the most part was really good.
BTW, you can also stream it from Netflix if you have an account.
