Food Inc. directed by Robert Kenner gives viewers an eye opening experience to the politics of the industrial food manufacturing and processing system. Kenner is an award winning documentary director and producer since the 1970’s. He has perfected his craft in Food Inc. by allowing the viewer to better understand where processed food comes from and the corporations that own it all.
The film takes a look into three of the most popular goods of corn, beef and pork. There becomes a better understanding of the corn industry and how almost all processed food can be traced back to the genetic modification of corn. Beef can be tied into this scenario with the newer practice of feeding cattle corn. The film takes some interest in explaining how corn fed cattle if possibly not the best decision for human health. Food Inc. puts great stress on the “deception” that food processing companies like to portray themselves as a wholesome farm grown company.Order now
When in reality, the system of manufacturing food has been so far removed from the wholesome farm scenario that it now run by computers from thousands of mile away. The corporations have also taken the time to deter consumers of being able to trace their food origins. This film hopes to bring the discussion back to consumers of really finding out what they are consuming in their bodies. The uniformity quest that all food companies like to accomplish has created mass amounts of environmental and health issues for everyone, especially in the United States. The economical side of the industrial processing has become such a tangles web. The film highlights the potential thoughts of previous food company CEO’s now being the political figures that decide their laws and regulations.
There is no on. . shown in the film. You have to make the right choices financially as well as for your health but sometimes it can be hard. I think the family in the film had a great example. They can pay for the medication to treat the diabetes or they can eat healthy.
In the end, they pay for the medications and live off of a dollar menu. This film was enjoyable to watch because of the presentation of the facts or information. It was not a complicated, scientific, political mess of information that someone in the general public wouldn’t be able to understand. It is filled with information that could be part of anyone’s everyday eating habits. Kenner does such a good job of giving a broad overview of the big topics and what touches everyday lives. There are scary facts and information in the film but, Kenner doesn’t make you feel completely shameful of yourself or food lifestyle.
