We are what we Eat

April 29, 2010

I have been doing a lot of exploring into food and where it comes from, and it doesn’t look pretty. The movies “Food Inc”, “We Feed the World” and “Fast Food Nation”, and the excellent books “Omnivore’s Dilemma” and “Eating Animals” cover the main issues and arguments, ie, industrial farming is packing animals with corn and harmful antibiotics, which in turn we eat, leading to all sorts of problems. Even “organic” is under threat, with new movements back to traditional farming trying to put real food on the table. Linked to this, the more detailed “The China Study” talks about these issues as they relate to diseases like Cancer. All in all a huge problem.
