Documentary Review: Food Inc.

*Recently, my husband and I watched two documentaries: Fat Sick and Nearly Dead, and Food Inc. We were so inspired and informed by them and I’d highly recommend them to anyone (both are available on Netflix instant play!).*

Food Inc. is a documentary about the food industry.  Most Americans really don’t know where their food comes from, and that’s just how the industry wants it.  This documentary pulls back the curtain and gives us some important insight into where our food comes from, what GMO’s (genetically modified organisms) mean for the future of our food, and why our individual choices really do matter if we ever want to see change.

This documentary may shock you, amaze you, and make you angry.  At the very least, it will probably make you want to change some of your eating choices and habits for both health and ethical reasons.  Food Inc. may change your life!  We were so glad that we have already made the choice to eliminate animal foods from our diet, but after watching Food Inc. we also made a strong commitment to quit purchasing genetically modified foods.
