Overdue "Food, Inc." Plug

I don't know if this post is dated or what since the movie came out June 12, but if you haven't seen "Food, Inc.", I really think you should before it leaves theaters.

If you've ever wondered what a cow is supposed to be eating (it's grass, not corn) or why you might want to buy organic food, it is definitely the film for you. It's basically The Omnivore's Dilemma and Fast Food Nation rolled together in movie format and it's great for anyone who wants to know more about what we're eating but doesn't have a chance to extensively examine the issues.

And if you haven't ever wondered about that stuff, you should especially see it because your health is probably at stake! Bonus points for supporting my friend Don's company, Emerging Pictures. Check out the trailer and view NYC show times here. It's Friday night people, go!

  1. Speaking of cows...We just got back from a 10 day road trip that took us across Wisconsin, the so-called "Dairy State." NOT A COW IN SIGHT! Seriously, it broke my heart. 2 full days driving through Wisconsin and we saw maybe 8 cows, tops. What did we see instead? CORN! Everywhere, corn. I can only assume that the cows are hidden away inside buildings, being fed on the corn that is growning on the land that used to be their grassy pasture.
