I am reading The Omnivore's Dilemma by Michael Pollan. I'm guessing that this is the book that led to Food, Inc. I had heard about what happens to beef but it is different to read it for yourself. Ignorance is bliss, as the saying goes, but now I am not ignorant of the horrendous conditions by which beef and corn are put into our food supply. What a vicious cycle- poor farmers looking for help, government subsidies, turning corn into everything, cheap food and a health crisis.
I'm almost afraid to continue reading but I have to know so I can make educated decisions.
