Iraq War Veterans Working On Organic FarmsGuest:
Michael O’Gorman, Executive Director, Farmer-Veteran Coalition.
Food, Inc. is a film that lifts the veil on our nation's food industry, exposing the highly mechanized underbelly that has been hidden from the American consumer with the consent of our government's regulatory agencies, USDA and FDA. Our nation's food supply is now controlled by a handful of corporations that often put profit ahead of consumer health, the livelihood of the American farmer, the safety of workers and our own environment.
