Have you seen the documentary 'Food Inc' about the food industry in America?


It was on tv here late at night recently. I bought a copy of the DVD so my husband could watch it. I am wondering if many other people have seen it, and what was your reaction?

    I agree. Humane butchering is one thing. The footage in this doco was very disturbing. It particularly bothered me that when they have an outbreak of disease or food poisoning in the US, huge amounts of food must be recalled and wasted.

    Vegan is challenging with kids. Just out of interest, how does your daughter cope when visiting friends? I make gluten free meals for one little girl who comes here.

    My husband is vegetarian. No meat but he happily eats our free range eggs.

    Thanks for commenting ExpectGreatThings. I am glad that your relatives are still independent farmers. I wonder if their healthy animals are mixed with everyone else's at one of those big slaughter houses. I hope not. Good luck to them. Thanks. :)

    I cried watching this doco. It should be compulsory viewing for every American politician.

    I lived in the UK for years and never once ate red meat there. Mad cow disease led the news bulletin when I arrived. I eat meat in Australia from a local butcher who sources local healthy animals.

    Yes, the chicken farmer's story was so sad. The corn farmer did a brilliant job of answering questions while trying to keep himself out of trouble. And the story of the man who harvested seeds was heartbreaking. The govt should be looking after them.
