Outstanding documentary that should be required viewing for everyone that buys food ... okay that's almost all adults and many children and teens. Stunning portrayal of commerce over safety. Yes, it is American, but Canada has relinquished sovereignty over its food by pretty much following the FDA down the path of violation of food. So very, very sad. At the end we are reminded we have power to make a difference with every bite of food we eat and with every piece of food we buy.

Greedy, corrupt, oppressive corporations control our food, torture animals, enslave farmers, and contaminate plant genes.

Very thought provoking and does raise real concerns. I work in the food industry and am aware of many of the concerns rasied in the DVD. I don't believe we are as bad as America but potentially coming close to it. I have and will continue to support local fresh markets, famers markets and small retailers offerring local produce.

A wonderful movie. It truly reveals the horrors of our food supply more than any book does.

An infomative and disturbing view of how commercial food is made. Great in-depth reporting shows common factory practices and abuses of both animals and workers. You'll never look at food the same way again. Not recommended for young kids because of footage of slaughter and abusive treatment of animals. Good for mature middle-school-aged and older kids, and adults.

This is a fantastic documentary that covers the current state of our food chain. It explains how and why food is produced in a factory manner. If you have a weak stomach then you may not want to watch this film. The movie will change the way you see the food on your plate. It is definitely skewed towards one side of the argument and it is interesting to see how policy in Washington DC drives the way we buy our food. It offers solutions and takes on a subject that is very difficult. Changing the eating patterns and habits of US citizens is next to impossible, but they do give it a shot with a simple recommendation "vote with your wallet". This is a great documentary and one everyone in the US should watch it.
