I've been MIA from 3FC for a long while now, but I just heard this and I thought people in this forum might be interested.

The movie Food, Inc. is going to be aired on PBS on Wednesday, April 21st at 9pm ET.

Here's a preview: http://video.pbs.org/video/1402965302/

I've never seen it, so I've added it to my calendar! :D

I saw it and plan to teach the discussion guide. It was quite good.

This movie was awesome! It changed so much for me and what I eat now. I still have a ways to go, but I think a lot more now about what I do.

Definitely an eye opener. A must watch.

Thank you for the heads up! I've been wanting to see this.

i just watched this film, it is amazing! I recommend it to everyone!

I'm about to watch The World According to Monsanto as well. I've already started it and it is perfect for a follow up to Food, Inc. and its online for free (its streaming by the way, which means no downloads):http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=6262083407501596844

Just a heads up, check your local listings. Not all PBS stations will air this at the same time or day.

Thank you so much for sharing this! I've been wanting to see it for some time and really hope my local PBS station will carry it.

I wanted to see this but I am going to be driving all night (12 hour drive) so I'll miss it. Maybe the Library will have it soon. Or...maybe I'll remember to see when it's on here and DVR it.

great movie! really got me thinking more and more about what I eat. It's scary how little control and information we really have over our food source. This really needs to be the next big movement. I definitely think it will be!

Everyone needs to see this movie!

04-22-2010, 08:00 PM
Thank you once again. I enjoyed watching this and got so much out of it. It really opened my eyes to some things!

It's on tonight where I live. Wow, it is incredibly disturbing. I mean, I knew most of this stuff (I've been a strict vegetarian for 17 years and now only consume wild Alaskan salmon) but seeing it...EWWWWWWWW...

I own the movie - love documentaries - and it's really not just how animals are treated but the processed food that is disturbing.

We are what we eat - I truly believe it. The movie does reflect this old adage.

Oh shoot, I completely missed this. I see they show it on their website. I better watch it before they remove it!

It is available for viewing onling at cbc.ca (Canadian Broadcasting Corporation). Hopefully Americans are able to view it as well, unlike your NBC which restricts online viewing to Canadians..hmppfff.

I can't yet post links so piece this together.

I watched it on Netflix On Demand, so if you have Netflix you can watch it that way or get the DVD.

Amazon sells it, but they also have it On Demand for 2.99

I thought this film was amazing and I am considering buying a copy for a couple of friends and hopefully get them to open their eyes.

Cally, thanks for the link! http://www.cbc.ca/video/#/Shows/The_Passionate_Eye/ID=1464545109

But it's just for our Canadian friends, because we're blocked down here :lol:

I just watched this film yesterday - it was very nicely done.

The 'pig' scenes are still haunting me. It was a very brave film. I wish more people would watch it, instead of turning away from the realities of what they are putting in their body.

It was also nice that they focused on the workers's suffering - for those who don't feel it is necessary to empathize with animal suffering, perhaps they can at least identify with the working conditions and psychological impacts.

love this film!

I saw it a few days ago and it's wonderful - really made me rethink all the processed crap I've been eating. I'm definitely going to try to support local food and farmers more after seeing this!

Just wanted to let everyone know that Food Inc, is available on youtube for viewing!

Another very educational documentary that renewed my will to healthy lifestyle and watch literally every thing I ingest is "Sugar: the bitter truth". Sure, we all know that gluclose is better than fructose, but this Dr. tells us how the body breaks down the two sugars and how fructose (other than fruits, which has fiber and our body digests it differently) is actually a toxin to our body!
