While searching for movie times today (still gotta see The Hangover!), I lamented about the fact that ‘Food Inc’, the much talked about documentary diving into the ‘underbelly’ of our food industry, is not playing in Pittsburgh. Sigh.
I have read Omnivore’s Dilemma, Fast Food Nation, and In Defense of Food. All were interesting reads with a similar tune – the food industry/agribusiness = not so good. I still eat non-organic meat and some processed products. So although these books have not totally changed my life, I enjoy being informed and educated.
I hope to see Food, Inc when it hits P-burgh. There is also a ‘companion’ Food, Inc. book – a compilation of essays written by experts appearing in the film. Check it out here.
