Food Inc.

Sometimes I crave McDonald’s.  Specifically iced coffee and fries.

After finishing an interview this week, I suggested we go there to eat.  A friend talked me out of it and recommended that I watch Food Inc.

I had done research on one of the giant food corporations involved in the global grain trade, met people supporting farmworker organizing in the Southeast, and interviewed a woman who used to work in a poultry processing plant (she and all of the other women in the factory got breast cancer and lost their jobs.  None of the other factories around would hire them either).  I didn’t want to know any more than I already did.

Last night I finally watched it.  It was great.  Moves quickly, covers a lot of ground, and for the most part held my interest.  And yes, I am now considering some serious changes to my diet.
