'Food, Inc.'

Those who still believe that their meat is raised on sprawling farms in idyllic lands would be wise to watch "Food, Inc.," which delivers on its promise to lift the veil on our nation’s food industry. Filmmaker Robert Kenner gives viewers a whole new perspective on double cheeseburgers and chicken nuggets by chronicling the many facets of society that our current agricultural system negatively affects, from local farms and oil prices to consumer health and worker safety.
