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.
