Food: We're making it faster, fatter, bigger and cheaper but at what cost?

FOOD INC is a new documentary film from the producers of An Inconvenient Truth about what's in our food, how its raised, how its processed, why it's cheap, why its addictive and what it's doing to us. "The way we eat has changed more in the past 50 years than in the previous 10,000 but it gives the illusion of being the same." Robert Kenner, Food Inc., director.
The film promotes a more conscious way to eat, examines the industrialization of food and stresses the importance of our rights to know more about its origins.
It will be shown this month in RI at two theaters. Here is a link to a preview/trailer:
The Avon in Providence on July 17
Jane Pickens in Newport on July 24 

Blogger note: There will be a RI Center for Agriculture Promotion and Education (RICAPE) fundraiser showing of this film on Wednesday July 22 at the Jane Pickens Theatre in Newport for $25. Show up at 6 for a gathering with food and drink from Whole Foods, local wineries, breweries; watch the film at 7 and then discuss issues with Q and A at 8:30 with local food folks.
