    Food Engineering = Cancer. Food Engineering = inhumane treatment of animals

    So sad so very sad this video about the animals. This is happening to animals and with animals everywhere. I have seen this kind of videos from The Netherlands, Germany, United Kingdom. I Have become an vegetarian 21 years ago. I don´t want no part in this, I can´t handle the thoughts about how the meat landed on my plate. A safe way for your food, a vegetarian way?! Or is that to radical? The profit always rules, and the animals, they don't have a voice. and the planet doesn't have a say either

    This guy has excellent view on the situation, he should make the film.

    @ Meghan. Thanks. I was caught off guard when I turned the TV on. I would think the Pentagon will be safer after 911. Havent been back to Washington in years!

    @Eliza, AC360°

    Nice to see you on the blog tonight.

    Food Inc was the only film that I saw in the theatre in 2008.
    It was a great movie, I think.

    @Kim- Ohio, "...it's hard to watch...turns my stomach..."

    You know what they say Kim, if you can't watch it being made, you shouldn't be eating it.

    I loved the piece Gary did on the Black Beauty Ranch in TX. I have humane education classes and took hundreds of children to that ranch to learn. You have to have a special permission to go there. The animals aren't exploited for human entertainment. It is a wonderful place! I even took some coyotes there for rehabititation. What a great piece! Thanks GAry!

    @ Cessy,

    "I would think that after 911, security at the Pentagon has improved"

    It sounds like it has! The officers are going to be fine, the gunman was critically wounded, and was not able to get passed the officers.

    Sounds like a job well done to me.

    Evening Anderson and everyone,

    This story makes me sick. I don't have a problem with eating meat, but those men are just cruel. I was recently reading an article on this subject and the social and environmental responsibility of supporting farmers and meat providers who apply ethical practices. It's cheaper to buy from the unethical ones in the short term, but in the long term the consequences will cost us.

    That story on a lack of inspections is just sick.

    PETA as well as the HSUS has shown many of these types of films before. This is not surprising to those of us who are vegetarians. Many of us are vegetarians because we love animals.

    Good evening Anderson, Isabel, Emily, Starr, Megan, everyone. It's a reilief to find out that the Pentagon security officers were only grazed in the shooting incident earlier this evening. Glad the suspect is in custody, hopefully he recovers from his injuries and they can find out what was motivating him.

    What about grass fed beef?

    Scarry news about the meat problem. I just finished my nightly bowl of lentil stew with "fake meat". Never had a recall on Meal Starters-found in the frozen food section. Better for you-better protein. Hmmmmm.

  19. Devin

    I feel realy lucky that I can have beef that is from a small scale farm were they can move around! people should support local farmers more and it will help everything from your health to economy

    Mike,
    I agree with you, Fish is real safe than other animals. I remember I was shock it was E-coli has real bad disease few years back, They aren't safe at all.

    How awful with this shooting at Pentagon and how many other crazies out there. And why don't we have more inspectors with our food. Like everything else today greed and corruption.

    Hello Anderson and everyone!

    This story on beef is making me sick. We had hamburgers last night. Yuck.

    Why do the government people side with slaughterhouses? One would think they would get rewarded based on finding more not less.

    Another excellent story by Gary Tuchman!

    It is tragic that animals are treated so badly, you'd think there would be more respect at the time of their death. After all, they are sacrificing their lives to become our food!

    I am deeply discouraged that Not Many of our regulatory agencies are working the way that they should.

    Again, no one seems to care about the American people and Food is an important issue!

    I was in humane rights for animals for over 20 years. I have seen these calves. They are veal mostly and are fed a horrible diet to make them sick but their meat tender. I have seen them actually kicked through a auction barn to the slaughter house.
    Go Gary! If you knew how food animals were raised, most people would be vegetarians. It is so inhumane. inexcuseable!!!

    Glad I didn't have meat for dinner. Have you guys seen Food Inc.?

    @Cessy,
    Guman was walking through shot 2 officers and shot fired back guman. might have breach security.

  32. Jo Ann, North Royalton, Ohio

    I have seen these things before, I can't watch them.

    Paul McCartney, a dedicated vegetarian, once said, "if there were glass walls on slaughterhouses everyone would be a vegetarian."

    I am so glad that I am one of them!

    I'm switching to fish.

    Anderson,
    Hi! The program sounds like an interesting one tonight.
    It's good to hear the officers survived the incident at the Pentagon.

    I would think that after 911, security at the Pentagon has improved. guess not.

    How awful...the shooting. Thoughts are with the families of the officers.

    Guman is no real emotion at all? Nothing to say just shot 2 officers, I never seen gunman would have breach security without knowing.
