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

Worth seeing
27 May 2010 | by davidmonteroSee all my reviews

This documentary gives useful information on the effects conventional agriculture can have on our health. Even in this small town in the French countryside where everything looks so beautiful and where fields look so healthy at first sight, pesticides and other chemicals are having an effect on the land and the population.

The documentary is a bit slow and very much focused on this small French town's push to bring organic food to the school's canteen, but it is worth seeing. It's a good addition to the documentaries looking at food and health of the past few years.

Regarding facts vs anecdotes:

The end credits provide a "bibliography" with some sources from academic journals. Seeing that helped me trust the figures quoted during the movie a little more.
