  2. Haven't seen this yet, but have been aware of the food industry's problems and it scares me too. I can't remember the last time I ate red meat, or pork, and I will only occasionally buy a 'safe' chicken from a local farmer's market. It's just so sad how messed up things have become.
    I'm going to go plant my face in my pet rabbit Honey's fur and kiss her now, which usually counterbalances all the craziness in the world. Works for a while anyway : )

  3. i second that, it's definitely a must see (just not while you're eating which i made the mistake of doing.)

  4. Lisa... really, you should see it. But, like "Down and Out Chic" said, maybe not while you're eating.

    Ellen... While the movie certainly points out elements of cruelty and inhumane conditions as a part of food production, the other "scary" side of all of this is the high levels of power and corruption that exist in legislation and regulation of our food supply. It's unreal! Now... off to Honey for some snuggles!

    Down and Out Chic... I did the SAME thing! I don't know why? But it was dinner time and the movie was on TV so what was I gonna do?

    Thanks for stoppin' by, Ladies! :)

  6. Food, Inc. is a must see! It was such an eye-opener and has really driven me to try my best to make better choices.

  15. Paloma.... yes indeed! Thanks for lending your critical support! :)

    Josephine... I don't think you should be scared. I don't think you should eat while you're watching it... but don't be scared. Very eye-opening!

    Paris Hotel Boutique... No! I have NEVER eaten Ho Ho's for lunch! I'm a Suzy-Q kinda guy. ;) I don't think this a "Go vegetarian or go home!" kinda film. It really focuses more on the quality of our food supply and the political powers that control behind the scenes. Unbelievable!

    Laura... well done wasn't it?!! Glad you caught it! :)

    Simply Mel... WOW! Good for you! The gift of knowledge! But some prefer to be ignorantly blissful. I don't mean that to slam people. It's a lot to take in (My partner was like, "Shut up! Shut up! Shut up!" But it's our FOOD, people! We're putting this in OUR BODIES! I mean, I got some atrocious habits but we can all change for the better a little... can't we?

    House of Milk... did you see it yet?!! What'dya think?

    The Purple Foodie... (thanks for stoppin' by!) and you're welcome! Hope you get a chance to see it sometime soon.

    THANKS, KIDS!

  18. Oh this film was arresting, wasn't it? It's available as a Watch Instantly on Netflix.

    I've been slightly obsessed with watching documentaries and reading about how our food is made. Inspired me to grow my own veggies and herbs.

    Still don't know what to do about my candy addiction, though. Although the documentary "King of Corn" reminds me to stay away from corn syrup.

Thank you so much for taking the time to comment. I always appreciate your thoughts. Your comment will appear as soon as I can publish it.

p.s. - Contrary opinions or constructive criticism are also fine but "The Bedlam" doesnt' serve as a platform for random (or anonymous) acts of offensiveness. Rude? Deleted.
