Food Inc.

Somebody once said We are what we eat. Does it still apply if we don't know what we eat anymore?

Food Inc. is not a first date movie, especially if you've planned to go out for dinner right after. The movie is hard to digest and helps raising some questions on the limits that we have to put to the evolution of the current economic system.
I don't want to talk about the millions of chickens that are raised to get fatter, kept alive for exactly six weeks without ever seeing sunlight, crammed one against the other into big containers, unable to move, so fat that often they can't even stand up and their bones crack because they can't bear such an unnatural weight.
I don't want to talk about the cattle led to slaughter in a way that is not only inhuman but also dangerous for our own health and hazardous for the workers due to the lack of safety rules.
I don't want to tell you about the workers that are recruited illegally and paid next to nothing in order to reduce cost and allow the fast food giants to offer $1 meals on their menu. I don't want to tell you about those families who live on McMeals because it cost less to buy four cheeseburgers than two pounds of carrots.
I don't want to remind you that the population is increasingly afflicted with obesity, malnutrition and diabetes because of a diet largely based on corn, which, as corn syrup, is listed as ingredient in 80% of the products we find on the shelves.
Instead, I want to advice you to go see it yourself, but remember, do NOT buy pop corn, because you won't be able to eat it - guaranteed.

If you want a ehm...taste...of the movie, watch the official trailer here.

Sara, I am very impressed! How do you have the time for all of this? I have to make that watermelon drink and the chocolate tort was delicious! I love your descriptions and stories too. You are the bomb girl! See you soon!
