Food Inc.

"Don't take another bite till you see Robert Kenner's Food, Inc., an essential, indelible documentary that is scarier than anything in the last five Saw horror shows," says Rolling Stones, Peter Travers.

Check out a little review from Huffington Post, cleverly titled, "Silence of the Yams."
In the tradition of Morgan Spurlock's Super Size Me, Food Inc quickly turned into a horror flick (with positive outcomes) Here are just a few revealing facts courtesy of the movie (that may make you rethink that delicious movie popcorn...)

1. Fattening up cows--although, as Food Inc. reveals, their digestive tracts aren't equipped to digest corn, so it makes them sick and creates a breeding ground for the potentially lethal E. coli 0157:H7 bacteria, which sickened 73,000 people in the U.S. in 2007.
2. Fattening us up on HFCS-filled soda and processed convenience foods, which makes us sick. One in three Americans born after 2000 will contract early onset diabetes, as Food, Inc. points out--unless you're a minority, in which case, the rate will be one in two.

Makes you wonder what is really in that hamburger you're about to eat...
