You are what you eat, is the simple way to say it. The writer William S. Burroughs called his iconic examination of literally what is at the end of your fork “the naked lunch.” As a student of anthropology, Burroughs was referring to addiction as an aspect of science, as in the human organism's need for air. Try to live without it. You can extend the metaphor to the food we eat. “Food, Inc.” a new documentary directed by Robert Kenner opening this Friday, explores the food industry, how our current situation with something so vital to the human organism, our food, is now a nightmare of corporate control with the dire results of increased e-coli contamination leading to disease and death, genetically altered meat and poultry sources. Produce like the tomato, now available year-round, is practically a virtual entity. Food, Inc. tells the truth about a business that conceals its methods of mechanizing the production and sale of food, and to become really paranoid, has endangered the human species by fostering a brutal spiral from seed to supermarket. Here is why so many Americans are obese and one out of three children has early diabetes. While we have the illusion of inexpensive food, says journalist Eric Schlosser, who is executive producer and is interviewed in the film extending his ideas developed in “Fast Food Nation,” what about the costs later on, putting all those people on dialysis. Schlosser was on hand for a special screening at Soho House hosted by Coralie Charriol Paul inaugurating her new series React to Film. Daughter of the famous watchmaker, she is a jewelry designer and more importantly a mom highly concerned with how we feed our families. After attending an early screening of this provocative film, she created her series to show documentaries, to focus on issue-based films and moderate discussion between audiences and filmmakers. Said Schlosser in the Q&A attended by actor Samantha Mathis, documentary filmmakers Robert Richter and Robin Leacock, we have the opportunity to make a change: every time we shop, we vote. Buy organic. Lobby for greater food safety measures in government. Implement Kevin's Law, named for a two-year old who died in less than two weeks after eating a contaminated hamburger. Demand proper labeling in food packaging as in the tobacco industry model. If you had the warnings that appear on cigarette cartons, that use of this product could endanger your health, would you buy it?
