period:5 The documentary ‘’Food Inc’’ gives a look into how the food system in America is run. Eric Schlosser a person in the documentary describes the American food system as ‘’ the world deliberately hidden from us.’’ As I watched the documentary called ‘’Food Inc’’ that statement became more and more apparent to me. Big name companies are constantly trying to hide to the consumers on the unruly truth about what we are putting into our food on a daily basis. The companies hide how the animals
was a powerful, educational, and well thought out documentary. Prior to watching Food Inc., I thought I had a respectable idea of how the food I ate was handled and processed. Subsequent to watching Food Inc., I realize that I was greatly mistaken. For example, some of the information gained is where animals such as chickens are raised, how tomatoes and other plants are chemically ripened after being picked half way across the world, and who is responsible for it all.
Food Inc. is a documentary I had heard about, but never seen. Many people I talked to about the movie told me how powerful it was and how the movie warped their thoughts on the food they eat. After watching the movie in class I can honestly say that it had no real effect on what I eat or the food choices I make. Food Inc. does an amazing job at showing how big corporations have corrupted Americas food system. Unfortunately Food Inc. didn’t make me change my food habits like it has other people.
I was immediately intrigued from the beginning of Food, Inc. There was interesting and valuable information brought up during the film. Many people do not think about where their food comes from. I believe that if people were to know where their food comes from, they would not want to eat it. There are 47,000 products at a grocery store. But, Food, Inc. implies that this is in fact an illusion because all of them are made with the same crops. The fact that there are only a few multi-national corporations
because we as consumers are not watching what we eat and think little of what is going on behind the closed doors of the food industry. In the well-known documentary Food Inc., it opens our eyes to the catastrophes of the food processing business and shows us just how much it is affecting our health and our lifestyle. With food being an important means of our survival, why is it doing us wrong rather than good, what exactly is going on between the government and the food industry, and what can we do
Food Inc. is a very informative and eye-opening film. The intended audience are those who eat unhealthily in America and all around the world. The film is based in America and it displays what companies put in their food before it goes in our mouths. It uses actual examples to display this, like a boy who died from E-Coli from a burger. The main message that the authors Eric Schlosser and Michael Pollan are trying to portray is that we should think before we put something into our mouths about how

The film entitled Food Inc is a documentary piece by Robert Kenner on the Food industry in America and the History which Lead the industry to where it is now and everyone who is affected by these changes. As a 22 year old college athlete it has never been at a more crucial time to keep track of my meals throughout the day. After a two hour training session the clock is ticking until my body has to go through
Food Inc. Before starting this documentary I knew that there were many secrets hidden in the food industry. I had been aware of some the manipulation that was being done to the food we eat every day. I had seen the division in the supermarket of GMO foods vs. organic foods. After reading chapter eight in our nutrition book I looked into some of the “healthy foods” I consumed frequently. I learned that canned soup contained a large amount of GMOs. For example, the Campbell’s tomato soup second most
in today’s times of fast food, synthetic proteins, and preservative-packed treats, the production of such goods behind the scenes of America’s food factories is far from perfect. The ideology in the industrialized food system’s ability to promote health in our environment has grown to be nothing short of questionable according to the standards and codes of modern times. After watching the Food, Inc. documentary, I became aware of so many hidden issues that rest in the food processing businesses of
