Has anyone seen Food, Inc? Just watched it last night and now I don't want to eat anything. Ever. Well, besides the chicken tortilla soup I just made for dinner tomorrow night. It smells heavenly and it's all natural and the chicken is the good kind......but sheesh, the food industry wants to kill us. I have a friend who brokers for one of the big name companies and I'm going to make sure she watches it. Unless she's been forbidden to.

I was going to check it out on Netflix. I think it's one of the instant choices. They don't show animals getting slaughtered do they? If so, I won't watch it. I prefer to be comfortably ignorant on that one...

Yes, I watched it instantly on netflix. Yes, it shows animals being slaughtered. Yes, it shows the horrible conditions in which they are living.

Yes, you need to watch it.

People keeping their head in the sand is not going to change anything. I haven't always done everything right, and still don't, but I'm definitely making more informed purchases and there are just some things that are more important to me now. We all should care about what we're putting into our bodies. Between the diabetes epidemic here in SA and nationwide, the fact that 9 year old girls have heaving breasts, kids are morbidly obese......yes, it's very important. Maybe not to everyone, but it is to me. That's why I think everyone should watch that film.

It's not totally graphic, in fact, it's really not very graphic at all. But you have to realize that whether you see it or not, it's still taking place so we can have our pizza rolls and our Hot Pockets.

I've always been a big label reader & have now decided to go meat free. I watched 'The Cove' & read 'The Kind Diet' and several other vegetarian/vegan books. Most people just don't want to hear about the slaughterhouses. They would rather just keep their heads in the sand.

Just live and let live

I would rather buy all the pieces and mix it up on my own than to buy something somebody else did and not know what's in there. You'd be surprised how much sodium is used in processed food (esp. frozen dinners etc.). It has been noted that the salt you sprinkle on your food is an infantesimal amount compared to processed foods.

Maybe someday I'll go meat-free. I'm a meat lover, but I do go meatless some days. I have been buying the "traceable to the family farm" meats that I can find, and ones without any hormones, grass fed, etc. My grocery bill has gone up quite a bit but I don't care. My biggest hurdle is eating out--you pretty much have to toss aside any qualms or just stay home every night. Not sure where in town you can get humanely-raised meat on the menu. But fast food in particular is the biggest reason for the mess we're in. McDonald's created a monster. Well, we're all guilty....we want cheap food, no, we demand cheap food, and it's been given to us. At the cost of our health and the farming industry. A handful of companies are killing us, one bite at a time.
