Well as a matter of fact, we do have a television in our house (and electricity to power it), but the local cable company hasn't made it out to our neighborhood, so instead we do a lot with Hulu and Netflix.
We recently watched the documentary called "Food Matters".
I am not sure I have enough knowledge yet to comment effectively on what I think about the movie's premise or content. I will say though, I think there is something to what they are talking about. I know for our family, our thoughts about food, and it's impact on our health, has been challenged a lot over the past couple of years.
As a society, we do trust our food system to others for the most part, rather than taking that responsibility back upon ourselves. This documentary focuses a lot on the impact of food and nutrition (or the lack thereof) on our health, and our current medical system.
I am not saying that I endorse everything the movie talks about, but I found myself agreeing with a lot of the things in the documentary, and then wondering what exactly should I do about it. Where do I start making changes in my family's nutrition? At times it can become overwhelming and that can cause us in our nature to shut down, or just ignore it and hope it goes away. The problem is, it doesn't take a lot for me to conclude that we do have a health care crisis in our country, just not in the areas that we hear so much about in the news.
Anyway, it would be interesting to hear from others about what they think of the movie, and the issues it raises.
Here is the trailier:
