Watch Food, Inc. at the Tampa Theatre

I just saw Food, Inc. at the Tampa Theatre.
It's a documentary written by two investigative journalists about how food production has changed dramatically in the past few decades. "Faster, fatter, bigger, cheaper..."
You know how some people like to say, "my grandparents ate a lot of fattening foods and lived to be a 100?"
This movie will show you how our food is no longer produced the same way. One of the most interesting segments shows you how the F.D.A., E.P.A & even the Supreme Court all have strong ties to chemical companies & food manufacturing companies. They've made key decisions involving the way our food is now produced.
If you have an hour and a half to spare, it's worth your time to see what happens to our food from seed to supermarket. Food, Inc. will be playing at the Tampa Theatre until August 13th. It usually plays at 7:30 p.m. but on Saturday, you can see it at 3:00, 5:15 or 7:30 p.m.
If you spend a lot of time reading labels, or trying to buy local produce, this will re-enforce your efforts. If you're ready to get healthy, this movie will give you some direction.
