What do you believe you are eating? What is food to you? Is it important?
This is a crisis that is as great as climate change, aids or drought, flood and famine - as destructive as fire, as powerful as religion, and as thorough as war.
PLEASE. PLEASE.I implore you to watch this video and become more aware. It expires in 9 days. If you EAT - this relates to you.
Please......I'm begging you.
Food Inc. : Video : SBS Documentary
what crisis with food? be a bit more specific! i dont click links from strangers without a good description.
The video is not available to watch - maybe you could give a breakdown of what the author was trying to say?
Good point Faye. Its very tricky to describe.... their is so much information involved. I felt remiss keeping it to myself...
What is it about? This basically.
Commercialization with corruption within the governing bodies controlling food safety....
Industrialization to the point of removing the food out of the creation of food.
Closed doors on food production systems....
Cruelty to our fellow human through deprivation of rights.
Unsustainable fragile systems providing the greater percentage of food.....
This is becoming a world wide trend - this link takes you to a documentary on the American Food industry, but bear in mind, they are world wide leaders.
If you cant follow the link - perhaps you could try to google it. It really is very important information in the future of our economies, and our future as a race :?
Here is a bit more information on the film, I hope that this page is available in many countries :-)
Food, Inc. - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
I didn't watch the video or click the links, but I will add... there are very good reason why people like myself have become or are moving towards being small sustainable farms.
Many of us in the horse would agonize over what we feed our horses, yet give no thought to what is going into our own bodies, or the bodies of our children.
My usual point in these things is that unless the author is offering some realistic solutions to 'cure the ills' its a waste of time
We can all very easily pick faults in things - what we really need are ways to fix them
So so true Lockwood!
That is exactly what I thought when I saw this film. I have been fortunate to be exposed to the food industry for many years, and I have not stopped learning things that scare me.
The frustrating thing about this film, is that it highlights issues, that will lead to problems sourcing food for our beloved equines.
I completely agree Jaydee.
I am not the Author however, but if you take the time to watch the film - you will find some very leading, useful answers, and solutions.
I totally agree - and I find it appalling when time and time again, organisations only point to problems.
Problems change nothing........solutions are the only way to change.
Some problems are sad however....and some are dangerously scary that need more minds, moving towards ways to sway a change. In these cases, whatever it takes, is what needs to be done.
I am not going to go into solutions anymore than this, please be aware of where your food comes from - and exactly what it is you are putting into your body.
If this was the only action that was undertaken , then change would move faster than we could imagine.
Food safety is incredibly important, but only if those who deem food safe or not, are actually doing their job.
I read the book....and my eating habits haven't changed at all. I also read some really disgusting book about the horrors of fast food, and it just made me crave French fries. :lol:
