F-N-F | Friday Night Film | The Future of Food

F-N-F | Friday Night Film April 8th, 2011

In case you haven’t figured it out yet, healthy lifestyle is part of my thing.

The Future Of Food (2004)

This documentary came out November 13, 2007 according to the info on Hulu  – less than 4 years ago as of this posting. However, when checking out the history of the film on it’s OWN website, I found this:

The Future of Food has been a key tool in the American and international anti-GMO grassroots activist movements and played widely in the environmental and activist circuits since its release in 2004. The film is widely acknowledged for its role in educating voters and the subsequent success of passing Measure H in Mendocino County, California, one of the first local initiatives in the country to ban the planting of GMO crops. Indicative of its popularity, the Future of Food showed to a sold out audience of 1,500 at the Castro Theatre in San Francisco in 2004, a benefit for Slow Food, where it was introduced by Alice Waters.

Like Food Inc. and The World According To Monsanto, it is an eye opener for many as to what’s being done to our food supply.  Remember, knowledge is power and ignorance breeds complacency and allows for ease of control.  Keep informed!

The Future Of Food offers an in-depth investigation into the disturbing truth behind engineered foods that have quietly filled U.S. grocery store shelves for the past decade

Enjoy the film:

April Fools Day All Ya Pranksters

I’m bringing back the EffEnEff – aka Friday Night Film or Friday Night Funny – whichever fits the bill.

Tonight I share two TED Talks that I like – most of them are sooo good it’s hard to choose just one.

Number one is Jamie Oliver and his Food Revolution movement.

Sharing powerful stories from his anti-obesity project in Huntington, W. Va., TED Prize winner Jamie Oliver makes the case for an all-out assault on our ignorance of food.

Jamie Oliver’s TED Prize wish: Teach every child about food

Number two is Magician David Blaine explaining how he was able to hold his breath for 17 minutes

breaking the world record – and what his often death-defying work means to him.
