Food. Inc.

I know it's a documentary. 

 It may be skewed. 

It may be dramatic.

 It may be trying to scare the living daylight's out of us.

It may be worth watching and forming your own opinion.

Just saying


  1. We do try to buy organic and do it locally whenever possible. It's tough in the Northeast during the Winter months as far as fresh produce is concerned, but there are local farms where we can purchase humanely raised and "prepped" beef, pork and chicken. It's a bit more expensive but hey, what isn't these days, right?

    Very compelling film clip. I don't know if I could watch the whole thing though... There's that part of me that would rather not see the really shocking stuff.

    (BTW, Your stuffed peppers and the brownies from your previous post look scrumptious!)

    thank you for stopping by...Missy is fine her fibro is acting quit active....she has a tablet now and assures us both that she will be back to blogging as soon as she gets used to touchscreen

    As for Donna (house on the corner) I am not sure what is going on..I will go to some of her hang outs and try to find out....I did know via the train that she is having some issues and wanted to be off of co-host ..will let you know what I find.


    PS I sent you an email...from

  3. I agree with you... I have the DVD, and I haven't been able to watch the whole thing, but eventually I will. It really makes you stop and think about what we eat.

  4. Well, look at you 2, sitting on the steps, looking like 2 teenagers, ready to smooch at any minute. I love it.

    It may be just a documentary but you hit the nail on the head. I've been saying this for eons. But it's almost too late. Chemicals are everywhere and I still go to a co-op to buy what is advertised as "organic" food but I've doubted if that is what I'm getting even though I pay 5 times as much as I would for the wal-mart food.

    Chemicals are sprayed everywhere and fall from the sky so if I plant an organic garden, what is keeping my neighbor's chemicals off my garden?

    What are the answers? My answers are long used up. Please continue with this food awareness as there are so many people who haven't a clue as to the difference. You, as a medical person can make a difference and bring about awareness. I applaud you.
    My love to you.

  5. Manzanita,
    My daughter, her special friend and I were just talking about this yesterday. Who do you trust? I buy my veggies from an organic distributor, pay 2-3 X more than the grocery, and still wonder if I'm getting the real deal!
    I know there will not be a change in the system. Money talks! I have to believe that the increase in childhood obesity and increase diagnosis of ADHD and Autism, has to be related to the foods we eat.
    Blessings friend,

  6. I had to watch that movie for a class last year. It was a pretty eye opening experience. I try and shop local but sometimes you don't even know.....
