Plot Summary
Documentary filmmaker Robert Kenner examines how mammoth corporations have taken over all aspects of the food chain in the United States, from the farms where our food is grown to the chain restaurants and supermarkets where it's sold. Narrated by author and activist Eric Schlosser, the film features interviews with average Americans about their dietary habits, commentary from food experts like Michael Pollan and unsettling footage shot inside large-scale animal processing plants.

    What is it gonna take for Americans to wake up and make a \"CHANGE\" starting with this totally corupt government. They continue to find ways to take away social needs all the while they spend \"TRILLIONS\" on wars with no end guarantee. Lets face it Government has out grown itself. This movie hilights a meer portion of the real conditions of this Country.

    I hesitated a moment with 5 stars, only because a few scenes gave me some sleepness nights, but these scenes and the honesty of them cannot be ignored. If you want to live in lala land, don'*******. If you want to prolong the lives of your loved ones and your own...if you want to live in a country that does not put greed and profit above human decency and fairness to all living creatures, please watch this and be courageous! I will never again buy meat from a grocery store. I will eat less meat, but it will be organic...I will eat more vegatables they will be organic to the extent I can afford them, and buy them at farmer's markets, and use my 1/3 acre lot to begin to grow veggies for my family. The movie had a profound effect on us all, especially my husband who is from Ireland and he couldn't believe we have come to this point as a country. The animals in Ireland are raised humanely and they produce delicious miilk, butter, eggs, and meat. Garbage in, garbage out. We are what we eat, and now I see why so many are so sick. Don't be afraid to be informed! Then take action and be proud of yourself!
