If you don't know this stuff already, this documentary will put you in the know.

Information on our food resources and quality is still authentic and reliable. You need to become health literate when chosing what you are eating.

Once again this movies exposes how "Uncle Scam" cators to BIG business and it's large donors, at the cost to the public good.

To quote Margaret Mead - "Never ever depend upon Government or institutions to solve any major problem."

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.
