Food Inc.: The Food Industry and You. A Wake Up Video.

Food, Inc. is a mind-blowing, stomach-twisting, eye-opening and ultimately heart-breaking film. See it – today! Filmmaker Robert Kenner ‘lifts the veil’ on our nation’s food industry. Our food supply is now controlled by a handful of for-big-profit corporations who seem to be far more concerned about making money than our health, the livelihood of the American farmer, the safety of their workers or our environment. This film is more than horrifying scenes of overcrowded slaughterhouses, where animals are forced to graze in pools of their own manure. This movie, for me, is about our most basic rights.We are being just as manipulated by the largest corporations as the food we are being sold. Wake up!

The manipulation of foods and the feeding of livestock have manifested bigger-breasted chickens. 50 years ago it took 70 days to raise a chicken to slaughter. Today it takes 48. It’s unnatural. The country’s top four meatpackers control 80 percent of the beef market. One single fast-food burger might have come from 400 different cows.The gut of a cow fed on corn breeds the deadliest strains of E. coli, a harmful bacteria that makes an estimated 73,000 Americans sick annually; including the tragic death of Barbara Kowalcyk’s young son Kevin, who died from e coli earlier this decade from an outwardly harmless fast food burger.Farmers are subsidized to overproduce corn, which then goes into Coke, Sweet & Low, diapers, Motrin and cattle feed. Obesity is at epidemic proportions, and diabetes is on the rise among children and adults alike.

You will be shocked to learn about what you eat, how it is produced and who we, as a nation, have become. Our freedoms are being taken away from us. Open your eyes. 10 things YOU CAN do! (source: foodincmovie.com) 1 . Stop drinking sodas and other sweetened beverages.You can lose 25 lbs in a year by replacing one 20 oz soda a day with a no calorie beverage (preferably water).2. Eat at home instead of eating out.Children consume almost twice (1.8 times) as many calories when eating food prepared outside the home.3. Support the passage of laws requiring chain restaurants to post calorie information on menus and menu boards. Half of the leading chain restaurants provide no nutritional information to their customers.4. Tell schools to stop selling sodas, junk food, and sports drinks.Over the last two decades, rates of obesity have tripled in children and adolescents aged 6 to 19 years.5. Meatless Mondays–Go without meat one day a week.An estimated 70% of all antibiotics used in the United States are given to farm animals.6. Buy organic or sustainable food with little or no pesticides.According to the EPA, over 1 billion pounds of pesticides are used each year in the U.S.7. Protect family farms; visit your local farmer’s market.Farmer’s markets allow farmers to keep 80 to 90 cents of each dollar spent by the consumer.8. Make a point to know where your food comes from–READ LABELS.The average meal travels 1500 miles from the farm to your dinner plate.9. Tell Congress that food safety is important to you.Each year, contaminated food causes millions of illnesses and thousands of deaths in the U.S.10. Demand job protections for farm workers and food processors, ensuring fair wages and other protections.Poverty among farm workers is more than twice that of all wage and salary employees.More food for thought:Reduce Belly Fat: The Happiness DietFood News from the Patron Saint of BBQEat More: Weigh LessSpread the word … NOT the icing,Janice———————————-Follow Janice on Twitter:Facebook!

    Thanks OLWL, for keeping us informed!

    I am disappointed that you bought into the claims of Food, Inc. I agree that we need to care for animals in a humane way, and nearly every food producer is doing that! The for-big-profit corporations that you mention are often family farms that are owned by one family and has grown the farm to be able to make enough income to support themselves! The people who grow our food are doing the best they can to provide a safe and inexpensive food supply to America! It is disheartening to see them attacked in such a way.
    We do need to take care of our environment and the animals who share it with us. I encourage you to take a trip to a farm or ranch to see firsthand how your food is raised. Do not just believe what you see in a movie or read on the internet! You are always welcome to visit our ranch.
