Food, Inc. Pictures, Images and Photos



This is my first time posting an essay here.  This is too important to not spread around.

One of my favorite things about the Oscar nominations is the new list of documentaries to see, on this list this year is Food INC.

Watching Oprah interview Michael Pollan, http://www.michaelpollan.com/ the other day talking about the Oscar nominated documentary Food INC. which he narrated, I was so intrigued I ordered the movie and watched it today.

For the sake of you and your families health, for the sake of the health of the planet, for the sake of the soul of the human race please I beg you to watch this documentary. You can get it through amazon for 10 bucks here: http://www.amazon.com/Food-Inc…

It is priceless in terms of what you get and you can pass it on to everyone you know.  Yes it is that important!

You know how you get little snippets of what is going on and you think you know but this documentary pulls it all together starting with the seed all the way to the plate and the grave.

It is gripping and had me shaking just like you do when you are cold.  I kid you not this film of where we are is like a cold splash of reality.  The bottom line message is we vote for this every time we buy something to eat.  If everyone saw this movie and we changed our buying habits the change would be powerful and swift.

Enough about the movie you just have to see it and get back to me.

More about this amazing man Michael Pollan after the jump……. talk about heroes this guy is way up there on the list!

Michael Pollan wrote this simple little book, a man after my heart because I feel the best things said are said in a simple way called,Food Rules.

http://themoderatevoice.com/58…

In Food Rules he list 64 rules of food wisdom.

Pollan says everything he’s learned about food and health can be summed up in seven words: “Eat food, not too much, mostly plants.”

Probably the first two words are most important. “Eat food” means to eat real food — vegetables, fruits, whole grains, and, yes, fish and meat — and to avoid what Pollan calls “edible food-like substances.”

Rule 2 of his book, “Don’t eat anything your great-grandmother wouldn’t recognize as food.”

You can find Michael Pollan everywhere…. are we listening?

This is a simple basic revolution to take back our lives and control over our on bodies! We have been used for other’s gain for far too long and it is killing us literally!  Lets vote every time we buy food to no longer support the corporations that are killing us for their gain.

Fight! This is a food fight for your life!!!

    I hope we’ll see lots more from you. 🙂

    I agree with Pollan, and I don’t eat things that only sort of look like food but aren’t. i.e. 99% of what you’d find on supermarket shelves. Mostly just tuna, grains and pasta. And nothing out of brightly colored boxes with indestructible glue holding the lids shut… and no meat – it smells like dead bodies burning when it’s cooked.

    this is Such an Important Issue. & one that is not on too may people’s radar- although it should be!

    the corporations- from those that sell farmers on using round-up, round-up ready seed & special fertilizer to those that process package & sell foods to us, (often times importing cheaper non-food safe ingredients)… well these corporation have only one thing in mind- PROFIT.

    & it’s just not enough to them to have profit, it must be ever increasing profit… & so they use cheaper, ingredients, sometimes adding things that could harm you (ex: sawdust in whole grain bread as ‘fiber’ labeled as cellulose)

    michael pollan is at the forefront of the real food movement.

    i trust literally everything he has to say.

    thank-you for your kind words & promoting my wee-tiny blog.

    i’m hoping that people will find the resources there to begin do (what i call) subversive politics.

    things just like what you’re talking about here. quit buying processed foods. get whole fresh fruits & vegetables & cook from scratch. support your local farmers & business owners. quit shopping at franchise stores…..

    using our dollars to vote against corporations & for ourselves & our communities.
