Food, Inc.

Here's one worth watching: the movie, Food, Inc., due in theaters tomorrow.

 If you have been wondering what all the fuss is about organics, food safety/security, "local" foods, and why it is they expect you to pay several times more for the "same product" if it is labeled organic, this will be a high quality introduction for you. Seeing a movie is a pretty painless form of education. From this interview by CUESA, it sounds as if most of the information will not be shocking to those of us "in the know" about food issues. But I think it's always wise to keep myself reminded about why it is I do what I do, and don't do what I don't do, and to support the folks who are putting forth the effort to get the information out, also so that when someone says, "Whatta you think about this?" I can have a fruitful conversation about it. Because what we eat is so important for so many reasons. It affects everything.
