A thought provoking must see for anyone remotely interested in where their food really comes from. BTW, just because it's labelled as organic doesn't mean the animals are in any better predicament and more often than not, are part of the industrial feed lot industrial complex that has decimated huge swaths of water, land, and air.

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

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.
