5 Great Documentaries: And The Oscar Goes To…

Food, Inc.
It’s something we do every day, most likely three or more times a day: eat food. For something that essential in our lives, we should know pretty much about it, right? Well, unfortunately that usually isn’t the case. Many details about where our food comes from are obscured by various special interests connected to the giant food industry. Thankfully, Food Inc. unveils the (often dirty) processes behind the food we eat and breaks down the disconnect between farm and food. The film will likely change the way you look at your next meal, but don’t let that stop you from seeing it. Food Inc. empowers viewers to make better food decisions that benefit our health, the environment, farmers, factory workers, and future generations.

I've heard of some of these films, not all, but they all sound very interesting. Can't wait to see some of them!

Congrats to "The Cove" for winning best picture! Thank you Ric O'Barry for everything you are doing to help the dolphins in Japan! I had the privilege of meeting Ric back in the late 80's when he was a guest speaker at a conference I was attending. A truly remarkable man who has dedicated himself to helping these intelligent creatures. Hopefully winning the Oscar will help to raise awareness of this issue worldwide and lead to the end of this brutal hunt in Japan.

I could not finish watching Food Inc. I am not a vegetarian. I certainly was sickened. But- saying this- I am glad I rented it and watched what I could. I have not seen the Cove, look forward to it!

Thank you- as always.
