I made it up to the point where the farmer puts his hand inside the cows stomach via it's access port, and I had to stop.
Not sure why I rented it in the first place; I guess I'm a sucker for anything in bluray.

Though I didn't write about it in my post, the gist of the film is that a hand full of companies control food production, and cheap subsidized corn has a huge influence in what we eat, and ends up is so many products.
I mentioned the film because those who are very concerned and interested in what goes into their bodies would be alarmed to see the state of the food industry today.
Sorry if was a bit too off-topic,

Do you mean the movie "King Corn?" I remember that movie where the farmer checks the cow's stomach through an opening on the side- so gross.
Since our food lifestyle has changed so much over the years, I'm always drawn to books and movie about food and the food industry.
I recently listed to the book on tape "Animal, Vegetable, Miracle." http://www.amazon.com/Animal-Vegetable-Miracle-Year-Food/dp/0060852569/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1259203585&sr=8-1
and just loved it. It was a great book to listen to on my MP3 player.
It's about a family that chooses to eat all locally grown food for one year. I can see how it could rub some people the wrong way but overall I felt very connected to the book as most of us here would. They understand the importance of eating foods in the way nature intended them too and she talks about the mysteries of learning how to garden and make their own cheese.
Very inspiring book for anyone wanting to eat more locally grown, in season food. I think anyone here would really enjoy it but especially those with a garden, whether big or small.

No, definitely Food, Inc.
I hope that cow is in the actor's union - he really gets around!
PS: Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!
