Disturbing Documentaries That Will Scar Parents Forever
Food Inc. (2016)
Food Inc. should be mandatory viewing for everyone because it addresses the food we eat and what goes into that food before it gets to our tables. While it’s not pretty looking at pigs gets slaughtered or chickens killed, it’s important to know, so we can make good decisions about the foods in our diet.
Everyone knows the industrial food industry has shortcuts to producing massive amounts of food for the public, and their methods to cut corners in food production are infecting our food and killing Americans. In Food Inc., some parents confess to the heart-breaking decisions of having to choose food from the $1 menu to feed their kids because they can’t afford healthy options. Another mom reveals how her 5-year old son died from eating hamburger meat they didn’t know was contaminated with E. coli. She asks the food industry the one question we should all be asking: What happened to keeping our food safe?
It’s almost impossible not to cry when looking at documentaries like this one. But we should want to know the ugly truth — we’re unknowingly eating and feeding our children unhealthy and contaminated food.
