King Corn on PBS last night

Did you see this? Phenominal independent film by 3 Boston students who move to Iowa to grown an acre of corn. They follow it’s journey to feed lots of cattle, corn cyrup…remarkable was the dumping of TANKS of ammonia on the soil and the spraying for weed control with super strength weed killer that no longer kills the corn because it’s genetically modified!!!! Not to mention how sick the cows get from eating it so they get to slaughter them quicker for your meat eating friends to consume! Great discussion and so glad we see Michael Pollan again (Omnivore’s Dilemna). Let’s try the link www.pbs.org/independentlens/kingcorn/index.html
