If you haven’t seen it yet, your chance is coming. Food, Inc will be shown on POV on PBS – April 21, 2010 from 9 PM to 11 PM. If there is one movie or TV show you watch this year, this is it. Talk about eye-opening. I had no idea that some of these practices were going on in the US. You can view the trailer here.
I was shocked after I saw this movie. I was appalled at the way the animals were being treated. The chickens were being grown so big that their own legs could not support their weight. They are kept in these dark, crowded houses. So sad. And that is really only the tip of the iceburg.
Also, don’t forget that the 3rd episode of Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution airs tonight on ABC at 9 PM. I am a huge fan of this show!
