I had the opportunity to watch the latest stomach churning horror story of a documentary about the food industry – Food, Inc. The worst part about this film is that I keep thinking about it as I inhale a hamburger, eat a chicken sandwich, or take a bite of steak.
The allure of Food, Inc. is that it lifts the curtain on the ‘dark’ side of the food industry – how it is mainly controlled (monopolized) by only a handful of companies & that their main goal is PROFIT – not treating their workers, the animals, or our environment with respect. It was not surprising that the four companies that control 80% of the beef and pork products declined to comment for this movie. Are they hiding something or did they think it was a waste of their time?
