This is the Canadian edition of the movie. Presumably the same as http://www.swapadvd.com/dvd/title/228862-Food%2B+Inc%2B/
It's a pretty good documentary - I certainly learned a few factoids. Probably the most persuasive argument it makes is that the corporate food industry is subsidized and protected from scrutiny in a way that is unsafe and unamerican.
Food Inc. is essential viewing

"Your going to give youself a heart attack if you think about it. Just eat it" Jared Edinger (childhood friend)
Well when I was seven years old that worked pretty well at getting me to shut my mouth at his fathers bad cooking and just eat it. Now that I'm an adult I would rather not eat poison, and I most certainly don't want to feed it to my children (as a side note my childhood friend feeds his children much better than his dad fed him as well). Food INC. is nothing short of eye opening, jaw dropping, in your face proof that the food industry is not to be trusted. Not only is our food supply tainted with bacterial killers while the industry refuses to truly fix the problem, but we are being sold poor health as well. Farmers are being told to raise chickens in a certain way which they know is not healthy for the chicken or for us. Cattle are being raised on corn based feed that promotes ecoli growth, and they are being kept in unsanitary conditions which also can impact our health. They industry has created soy beans that are immune to round-up (you know so they can spray that same round up on the crops to kill the weeds but not the soy beans). They are shaking down farmers to force them to buy their hybred crops or be eliminated from the market, and forced into bankruptcy. The amount of eye opening scenes come one after another.
This review can't do this film justice. However, if I were to come up with one thing I didn't like it is the scenes that pander the pro union message. I don't really care if you like unions or not. I just don't feel it added anything to the film.
