Today we are sharing with all of you the documentary Food, Inc., in which the filmmaker Robert Kenner lifts the veil on America’s nation’s food industry, exposing the highly mechanized underbelly that has been hidden from the American consumer with the consent of its government’s regulatory agencies, USDA and FDA.
America’s food supply is now controlled by a handful of corporations that often put profit ahead of consumer health, the livelihood of the American farmer, the safety of workers and of course, the environment.

We now have bigger-breasted chickens, the perfect pork chop, herbicide-resistant soybean seeds, even tomatoes that won’t go bad, but we also have new strains of E. coli—the harmful bacteria that causes illness for an estimated 73,000 Americans annually. We are riddled with widespread obesity, particularly among children, and an epidemic level of diabetes among adults.
The industry doesn’t want you to know the truth about what you are eating beause if you knew you might not want to eat it – Eric Schlosser, Author of Fast Food Nation
Perhaps if the general public knew how corporations use exploited laws and subsidies to create powerful monopolies, the outrage would be enough to make us think more carefully about the food we put into our bodies.
Here in 3rdeyevision we want to encourage you to grow your own food, however if you do not have that opportunity we invite you to buy organic products so as to eat clean, get lean and stay lean 😉
Happy gardening fellows!
