So it's about general food from the grocery store like regular canned corn vs orgranic canned corn or mainly about fast food?
thanks denny - I hope we can keep it from being derailed (and deleted).
ndcube - its actually about both - its really amazing to see how the advent of fast food has driven the industrial manufacturing of food, meat in particular. but as a result of the powerful hand of fast food, it has also changed the way the food is grown that we buy at the local grocery store.
unfortunately, this change has made the wrong food choices very cheap (dollar menu at McDs) and has forced the hand, so to speak, of a lot of lower income families. the increasing frequency of diabetes is one negative result.
I'm going to check out Omnivore's Dilemma and Fast Food Nation next - the authors of those books contributed/narrated the movie.
I encourage everyone to at least watch it - and take what you want away from it. I know I personally am very concerned about what I eat, so this has naturally swayed me in one direction, but others may have a different perspective.
