For those of you that are at least aware of the food industry and the truth behind how our food is processed, there really shouldn't be too much of a surprise here. However, it is nice to get an in-depth look at some of the views presented by the essayists here. If you're one of the people that has no idea why corn is pretty much the #1 commodity in the food industry, then prepare to be challenged. ( )

The varying perspectives represented in this book were interesting, though in many cases there were some...interesting claims being made. For the majority of the book, though, the essays were interesting, well thought out, and well reasoned, and I found it very interesting. ( )

No descriptions found.

From the Publisher: Food, Inc. is guaranteed to shake up our perceptions of what we eat. This powerful documentary deconstructing the corporate food industry in America was hailed by Entertainment Weekly as "more than a terrific movie-it's an important movie."

What are the giant agribusinesses and what stake do they have in maintaining the status quo of food production and consumption? How can I feed my family healthy foods affordably? Expanding on the film's themes, the book Food, Inc. will answer those questions through a series of challenging essays by leading experts and thinkers. This book will encourage those inspired by the film to learn more about the issues, and act to change the world.… (more)
