    I looked at the book yesterday. It made four suggestions.
    1) Use your kitchen, and not just the microwave.
    2) Buy locally, which avoids buying from the conglomerates.
    3) Eat seasonally. They suggested canning seasonal items you want year round. (I would suggest freezing.)
    4) Plant a garden. You can't get more local than that.

    I saw it yesterday and I thought it was pretty powerful.

    It covers everything from planting, production,slaughter, legislation, to illegal immigrants. It was interesting to see the complete picture instead of just bits and pieces here and there. Most shocking and revelatory was how the film maker presented members of Big Agriculture running the very regulatory agencies that are supposed to protect us from predatory food practices.


    I spent most of the film in shock and feeling overwhelmed with a broken system but by the end, I felt a bit more hopeful about what my role will be in making things better.

    Just bumping this one, cause I think it's important, and relevant to this site.

    Now nominated for an Oscar, and currently the best selling DVD in the US.

    If you don't have time to read Michael Pollan's books, or you don't read, then this is a great substitute.
