Food Inc.: A Participant Guide: How Industrial Food is Making Us Sicker, Fatter, and Poorer|
by Karl Weber (Editor)
Food, Inc. is guaranteed to shake up our perceptions of what we eat. This
powerful documentary deconstructing the corporate food industry in America was
hailed by Entertainment Weekly as “more than a terrific movie—it’s an important
movie.” Aided by expert commentators such as Michael Pollan and Eric Schlosser,
the film poses questions such as: Where has my food come from, and who has
processed it? What are the giant agribusinesses and what stake do they have in
maintaining the status quo of food production and consumption? How can I feed my
family healthy foods affordably?
Expanding on the film’s themes, the book Food, Inc. will answer those questions
through a series of challenging essays by leading experts and thinkers. This
book will encourage those inspired by the film to learn more about the issues,
and act to change the world.
