Last night we sat down and watch Food, Inc. as a family. We have become increasingly interested in improving the quality of the food we eat. For us, the only thing stopping us from making big changes is money. The sad truth is that healthy foods cost more and this movie showcases why that is.
As my husband said, "It was eye-opening."
This movie was made in 2008 and sadly, things have only gotten worse for the American food industry. Private corporations control our government more than ever before, putting the safety of our citizens at risk in favor of making money. It's time that we take a stand. Personally, every time a see a petition to fight Monsanto, I sign it. If you can afford it, vote with your dollars. Buy organic and local whenever possible. Grow your own! Make the changes that you can & bring awareness when you can.
Like they mentioned in the film, if the American people were able to take on the tobacco industry and remove its grasp on the government, we should be able to do it with the food industry!
