Film Review: Food, Inc.

Food, Inc. is the 2009 film about the food industry. It was was nominated but did not win Best Documentary at the 2010 Academy Awards.

The film goes far beyond even propoganda by making intentional misprepresentations, lies and distortions.

Propoganda means "a form of communication aimed at influencing the attitude of a community toward some cause or position. As opposed to impartially providing information, propaganda in its most basic sense, presents information primarily to influence an audience. Propaganda often presents facts selectively (thus possibly lying by omission) to encourage a particular synthesis, or uses loaded messages to produce an emotional rather than rational response to the information presented. The desired result is a change of the attitude toward the subject in the target audience to further a political agenda." See

"Food, Inc." goes beyond propoganda because it lies: that is, the film knowingly misrepresents facts. Many of these lies are documented in the film review by

Because the SafeFoodInc review details the film's lies and distortions in such detail and with scientific citations, the lies and distortions will not be repeated here. Suffice it to note that, if the film makes even one statement that is knowingly false, then no rational person will bother to examine the other claims in the film, since its other claims are suspect.
