ACOG Recommended Film: The World According to Monsanto


Let’s just say you’ve never heard of the corporation, Monsanto. You are neutral and this documentary just happened to be on. Well, prepare to be saddened and infuriated.

Food, Inc.

Food Inc. by Film Director Robert Kenner
Our nations food industry unveiled is the best way I can describe this film.  Below is a summery directly from Food Inc's website.
In Food, Inc., filmmaker Robert Kenner 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.
