Watch Food, Inc.!
I watched this documentary last night and was thoroughly traumatized with the reality of food production in this country. Watching how animals are genetically modified in labs to grow bigger and faster, fed corn and other junk, and then later being inhumanely slaughtered was truly horrifying. I will definitely be more conscious of where my meat comes from or cutting out meat from my diet all together!
This movie just reinforced how important it is for us to buy organic and from local farmers. I will definitely be paying more attention to my parents & grandparents vegetable garden this Summer so I can learn how to grow my own veggies too.
I highly recommend watching this (very graphic) movie, it has definitely opened my eyes to what is happening in U.S. agriculture.
