Thanks to Eric Schlosser’s revelatory 2001 book Fast Food Nation, we know all about the horrors of drive-thru food. It’s in the same spirit that the Schlosser-co-penned documentary Food, Inc. exposes the dirty secrets of the food industry responsible for most of what we buy in the supermarket. It’s all here, and it’s not pretty: tainted food; abhorrent working conditions; environmental violations and a profit-centered system that churns out unhealthy food that keeps us fat. The more you know, the less you’ll want to eat.

Poll

The U.S. Supreme Court announced that it will hear the case to determine if Wisconsin Republicans’ redistricting maps are too partisan. Do you believe the U.S. Supreme Court will order Wisconsin to redraw our legislative maps so the majority of legislative districts are competitive and voters will actually have a real choice between a Democrat and Republican?

Getting poll results. Please wait...
