The film not only documents bouts of E. coli in processing plants, but also the seeming mismanagement by the federal Food and Drug Administration and the plight of the farmers in contracts with large food corporations.
I do not purchase organic foods exclusively, nor have I shop only at the farm stands in the summer months, or even ordered local meats. I have found that all the good-for-us-stuff costs quite a bit more than does the processed/engineered/shipped-in-from-the-West-Coast stuff.
I will now alter my grocery shopping habits to include as many all-natural products as possible. I also will frequent the local farm stand and farmers' markets. I hope that others will do the same; the health of our families is too important.
