Storyline

Food Beware begins with a visit to a small village in France, where the town's mayor has decided to make the school lunch menu organic and locally grown. It then talks to a wide variety of people with differing perspectives to find common ground - children, parents, teachers, health care workers, farmers, elected officials, scientists, researchers and the victims of illnesses themselves. Revealed in these moving and often surprising conversations are the abuses of the food industry, the competing interests of agribusiness and public health, the challenges and rewards of safe food production, and the practical, sustainable solutions that we can all take part in. Food Beware is food for thought - and a blueprint for a growing revolution. Written by FRF

Wonderful and uplifting film
28 June 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This wonderful film is giving me some hope again that people will eventually come to their senses and reject the crushing dominance of chemical agriculture. I have lived for several years on an organic dynamic farm in Germany in the 1970's and these were the years of the best food I ever had. You cannot even buy such food in an organic store. Since then my worst fears have come true times 10. Nobody could imagine GMO's back then or the insane amount of new chemicals used in food production and processing. Some critics here said that there is no scientific proof in this film that these chemicals cause the crazy rise in cancer, especially in young people. Well those chemicals might not be the only reason, but combined with Chernobyl, all the nuclear power plants in France and world wide plus all the dangerous chemicals in houses, cleaning products etc. etc. We have to start somewhere - and why not with our food and water? IMO that is a great place to start the change of a better world for future generations.
