make a difference thursday - eat well

Do you know where your food comes from my friends? I just watched another illuminating documentary about food, this one specifically about corn (it looks like the corn on the cob you eat, but it's non-edible), how it's produced, and more importantly where it goes. The documentary is called King Corn. Watch the trailer:



For more information about the adverse effect (of which there are MANY) of feeding grain to cows instead of a grass, check out this link: http://www.foodrevolution.org/grassfedbeef.htm

Another great documentary about food (more specifically genetically modified food) is The Future of Food an absolute must see. It's scary, and you should watch it anyway. Here's a little bit of it...



I know there's been a lot of talk about eating organics and cutting out high fructose corn syrup and hydrogenated fats, and with the rising cost of food (and everything else) it's getting harder and harder to make those good choices, but I urge to to feed yourself and your loved ones well. Take care and know where your food comes from!

You can make a difference!

And by coincidence Rocket Boom did a bit on the food crisis today. Click here to see.
