Faster, Fatter, Bigger, Cheaper

Be prepared for your eyes to be yanked wide open after watching Food, Inc on PBS. 

From free range chickens to your Super Sonic w/ cheese, this film covers the ugly truth behind what it takes to get from the barnyard to the dinner table via your wallet and that all important corporate profit margin.

I've covered this before, but it's getting an encore presentation on KERA tonight, then Thursday at 3am, Saturday at 3am and Sunday at 3am. Set your DVR!

You need to watch this film even if you don't want to know where your "food" really comes from.

So what if feeding cattle grass for a few days kills e-coli? Chemical washing the raw beef is less effective but more cost efficient, plus it fits into "the system". How do you like the ammonia in your BigMac? Can they add smoke flavoring while they're at it?

It's not just beef. Ever heard of Monsanto?

Watch, learn, be amazed.

Vistive - it's what's for dinner.

Hmmm, not quite the same ring, I guess...

Haven't seen this documentary, but will tune in if I get the chance.
