How Corporations Ruined Food (Food Industry Documentary) – Real Stories

Posted on Aug 11, 2019

EZ Diet Note:  As usual documentaries like this give you 90%+ of the story and leave out the most sinister facts that would make you gasp in anger.  The march to an unhealthy population propped up and shaken down medically was no accident of food processing automation.  Things like this, on this scale don’t happen by accident.

When we walk into a supermarket, we assume that we have the widest possible choice of healthy foods. But in fact, over the course of the 20th century, our food system was co-opted by corporate forces whose interests do not lie in providing the public with fresh, healthy, sustainably-produced food.

Fortunately for America, an alternative emerged from the counter-culture of California in the late 1960s and early 1970s, where a group of political anti-corporate protesters–led by Alice Waters–voiced their dissent by creating a food chain outside of the conventional system. The unintended result was the birth of a vital local-sustainable-organic food movement which has brought back taste and variety to our tables.

FOOD FIGHT is a fascinating look at how American agricultural policy and food culture developed in the 20th century, and how the California food movement has created a counter-revolution against big agribusiness.
