Food, Inc. (2008)

Explores how a handful of massive multinationals have come to dominate the American food industry, and how their degrading factory farming practices are at the heart of

  • an epidemic of obesity and diabetes
  • ever increasing outbreaks of e. coli and salmonella poisonings
  • seed “racketeering”, and
  • a culture of fear and intimidation among farmers which puts even the mob to shame

The film investigates corruption right at the heart of government which has provided revolving doors between these multinationals and the very regulatory and judicial authorities which are meant to hold them to account (trailer below).
