There's a new documentary called FOOD, INC. about the corruptions in the food industry. Please check out my review: http://www.nycmovieguru.com/june12th09.html#foodinc

Here's a list of all the locations/dates it'll be opening at: http://www.magpictures.com/dates.aspx?id=3e3938d1-b785-4286-9ae0-8eb5952f1480, so hopefully you can see it when it comes to your town/city.

Hey, thanks for the info. I see it has rave reviews and it's coming to my city 6/26, yea!

"Filmmaker Robert Kenner lifts the veil on our nation's food industry, exposing the highly mechanized underbelly that's been hidden from the American consumer with the consent of our government's regulatory agencies, the USDA and FDA. Our nation's food supply is now controlled by a handful of corporations that often put profit ahead of consumer health, the livelihood of the American farmer, the safety of workers and our own environment. We have bigger-breasted chickens, the perfect pork chop, insecticide-resistant soybean seeds, even tomatoes that won't go bad, but we also have new strains of e coli—the harmful bacteria that causes illness for an estimated 73,000 Americans annually. We are riddled with widespread obesity, particularly among children, and an epidemic level of diabetes among adults.

Featuring interviews with such experts as Eric Schlosser (Fast Food Nation), Michael Pollan (The Omnivore's Dilemma) along with forward thinking social entrepreneurs like Stonyfield Farms' Gary Hirschberg and Polyface Farms' Joe Salatin, Food, Inc. reveals surprising—and often shocking truths—about what we eat, how it's produced, who we have become as a nation and where we are going from here."

Thank you for the link.
There are also some excellent reading suggestions on the films website - and a book accompanying the movie for those not lucky enough to have a screening nearby

The film is great. I saw it already in NYC. It doesn't go specifically into MSG, but looks at the big picture and it is a devastating critique of Big Food. Some parts are particularly heart-wrenching about the effects of food-borne illness on children. I did cry.

I hope this film spurs renewed interest in The Beautiful Truth DVD, which reiterates and proves many of the points made in Food, Inc.
