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." Aided by expert commentators such as Michael Pollan and Eric Schlosser, the film poses questions such as: Where has my food come from, and who has processed it? 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.

Great informative book and film about today's food industry and how the changes afflicting it reflect in our eating habits, our health and wellness and the survival of our planet. It's a must read for everyone aware of their own life and who take ownership of his actions instead of remaining in the dark and suffer someone else's irresponsibility. You will read the specifics and will certainly realize the need to participate in making good little changes in the right direction.
