What Can YOU do About All of This?
Knowledge truly is power, so please share this article and “Food, Inc.” with everyone you know. The more people become informed, the faster it will prompt real change to come about. Several other food-related movies that I also highly recommend you watch and share with your friends and family are:
• The Future of Food
• Super Size Me
• Fast Food Nation (Note from Mare: I have not seen it and heard that it is not worth it)
• The World According To Monsanto
On a practical level, short of starting your own sustainable farm (which you can do on a small-scale in your own backyard), you can also help by steering clear of foods that come from giant corporations, and instead supporting sustainable agriculture movements in your area.
Make it a point to only buy food from a source you know and trust. This will do your health a major favor and support the small family farms in your area. You’ll receive nutritious food from a source that you can trust, and you’ll be supporting the honest work of a real family farm instead of an agri-business corporation. (copied from Mercola.com)
