I saw this last night, it’s an eye opener.

It will be streaming online in its entirety through next Thursday.

Watch it while you can ..

“there is this deliberate veil, this curtain that is dropped between us and where the food is coming from” … “if you knew you might not want to eat it” … “But the image to sell the food … it’s the spinning of this pastoral fantasy.”

2. A Cornucopia of Choices (5:34) Corn has been introduced into every part of the food system.
