King Corn – extended clip

A voyage of discovery to see where America’s food comes from. This seems like a good topic, since where America’s food comes from has changed more in the last 20 years than the previous 100, replacing the bucolic ideal of the American cowboy rancher with giant agribusinesses and Yale graduate presidents in Stetsons.
(I like the idea of these extended clips for PBS documentaries)

    Great intro to this film. Wish there was more. I have always told people, that is in the U.S., when they started having the obesity weight problem, this was the cause of it…..corn syrup and by-products of it in almost everything we eat. I have to even watch the H2O I buy. I can’t drink some of it because of the chlorine content. Some of the water would make my stomach burn after drinking it for a while, and I am just talking about a 10 or 20 oz bottle you would sip off of. Then someone told me that it was the chlorine in it to make the water clean. No wonder my stomach was burning….jeez. Anyway, maybe someone will do a documentary on the bottled water industry and who knows what else that is ingested into the human body.

    Growing up in the 1950′s we didn’t have all the crap in the food we have today and to have a chocolate bar or soda or pack of gum was considered a treat…..no soda at the eating time at all on the table. It wasn’t allowed.
