- Food Inc. – How industrial farming is making us sicker, fatter and poorer – and what you can do about it
If you eat food, you need to watch this film. This is a fantastic film about food issues with something in it for everyone. It covers the drastic changes in the food industry since modern industrial farming began and how it affects our health and the environment but finishes with a positive look on companies doing things right. It will suck you in, shock you, disgust you, anger you, but most importantly, it will make you a better-informed consumer and allow you to have more control over what you put into your body. I can’t stress how important it is for people to watch this film.
Take-away: You can reduce 80% of e-coli in cows by switching their diet from corn to grass
