Run don't walk to see Food, Inc.

Food, Inc. is a movie everyone should see.

We need to, all of us, understand very clearly that food safety, our health, the health of the planet are not things Government in this country has traditionally been concerned about, it's not interested in taking care of us, it's interested in taking care of Monsanto, Perdue, Tyson et al. no matter what the cost.

I posted the trailer a while back, but you should also check out their website for more information and actions that you can take.

Even if you've read Omnivores Dilemma, and much of the movie goes over similar territory, it is much more devastating to see the visual reality of CAFO's and the industrial meat farming then it is to read about it.

Please do not wait, go and see this film now, it is so important that we, the people who already understand what is at stake, create a tipping point in order to get this very important message to a broader audience. It's not just about food, it's about the planet, it's about our humanity and how they are all being threatened by the pernicious and evil system of "making" food in this country. It has to stop, I'm here to recruit you! It will take every person we can find to make this change possible.

The first thing we can do is create change with our food choices, buy local, support farmers, buy organic, avoid GM foods and factory meat.

OK, thanks, soap box is now put away.
