SNE and F&NSPEC listserv members: **Apologies for any duplicate messages**
I am hoping some of you may be able to point me toward information I think must be out there...but that I haven't been able to find!
I've seen both "Food Inc." and "Fresh" - two recently released documentaries about the contemporary U.S. food system, with emphasis on serious problems created by factory farms and other practices common within large-scale agricultural operations. These are powerful and thought-provoking films, and they put forth - visually and orally - some critical issues (health, ethical, environmental to name just a few) for all to consider.
That said, I am also interested in viewers who may question some of the perspectives/facts shared in either or both of these films. As I said above, I know the films raise critical issues, but I sense that some of the films' generalities might be overstated. (Admittedly, I may be wrong in this, but I'd like a broader foundation for evaluation than just my own inadequate knowledge base!)
Thanks, in advance, for any insights you could share with me and/or any references/websites/etc. you could point me toward.
