In Food, Inc., filmmaker Robert Kenner lifts the veil on our nation's food industry, exposing the highly mechanized underbelly that has been hidden from the American consumer with the consent of our government's regulatory agencies, USDA and FDA. Our nation's food supply is now controlled by a handful of corporations that often put profit ahead of consumer health, the livelihood of the American farmer, the safety of workers and our own environment. We have bigger-breasted chickens, the perfect pork chop, herbicide-resistant soybean seeds, even tomatoes that won't go bad, but we also have new strains of E. coliŚthe harmful bacteria that causes illness for an estimated 73,000 Americans annually. We are riddled with widespread obesity, particularly among children, and an epidemic level of diabetes among adults.
Featuring interviews with such experts as Eric Schlosser (Fast Food Nation), Michael Pollan (The Omnivore's Dilemma, In Defense of Food: An Eater's Manifesto) along with forward thinking social entrepreneurs like Stonyfield's Gary Hirshberg and Polyface Farms' Joel Salatin, Food, Inc. reveals surprisingŚand often shocking truthsŚabout what we eat, how it's produced, who we have become as a nation and where we are going from here.

Kind of long, but very interesting. Not vegetarian propaganda.
It's illegal to publicly criticize meat in some states, and those of us that eat meat might be consuming cloned animals without knowing. In California, Schwarzenegger vetoed a bill that would have made it mandatory to label packages of cloned meat. Also, illegal immigrants had their jobs taken away by U.S. corn manufacturers, and then those same people were recruited by the meat industry for cheap labor.
