Robert Kenner's Food, Inc., is one of the top grossing theatrical documentaries of all time, selling nearly 500,000 DVDs. Food Inc. received widespread critical acclaim, including an Academy Award nomination, and has influenced current food policy decisions.
If you never want to know what's in the food you eat, then this movie is not for you. It shows how the large food conglomerations in cohert with the government dictate what we eat.
Revealing the over 30 year campaign by the food conglomerate industry with the aid of our own U.S. government, Fed UP shows how they confuse and mislead the American public. The movie follows groups of families trying to lead healthier lives while battling with childhood obesity, diabetes, and other serious health concerns. This is one of the largest health epidemics in our history! It shows why the conventional thinking of eating right and exercising is not working for millions of people struggling with health concerns from their diets. This is a really well done documentary on the food industry and is narrated by Katie Couric.
There are some great interesting interviews too with the country's leading experts. This movie really brought to light some big issues and changed the way our family will eat from now on.
I encourage you to get a copy and share it with family and friends.
