1)

One quarter of what you eat keeps you alive, but three quarters of what you eat keeps your doctor alive. The daily foods that we are so familiar with are killing us……

FOOD MATTERS (trailer):

The modern food industry provides food for us faster, more, and cheaper. At the same time, this is also making us sicker, fatter, and poorer.

The food industry does not want you to know the truth of what you are eating, because if you knew, you might not want to eat it.

FOOD INC. (extraction with Chinese subtitles):

Never before in human history is like ours:  Eating so much, so oily, so sweet, so cruel (the ways of raising & slaughtering animals), so long distance (transportation of food), so unjust (to farmers & workers), and so harmful to our body. Actually no one is intentionally eating unhealthy. Most people just don’t know the truth behind the food……

*Extracted from preface written by Hui-Fang, Zhu, professional food author, Taiwan

In the food market driven primarily by capitalism, basically people can only achieve filtered & limited choices on the shells. Those food items placed on the shells, must be those profitable, good selling, and better yet those that will be repeatedly purchased by the consumers, which are those so called “addictive” food items.

*Refer to <Understand the Food Labels> written by Hong Kong Professor Yi-Xing, Kuang

From using chemical fertilizers, synthetic food addictives, GMO, laser (disinfecting process), to usingpackaging with toxins…, every procedure involved, as long as it can increase the attraction to the consumers or reduce the production cost, the food manufactures would be happy to use that……The consumers are like the guinea pigs in the lab test.

What’s wrong with our food system? The 11 years old boy Birke Baehr knows. He had studied a lot about this, and he took actions to make a difference.

It’s not too late for us to know and to make changes, NOW.

1)

你所吃的食物当中,四分之一让你不至于饿死,但四分之三却让你的医生得以维生。我们每天习以为常的食物,却是每一口都暗藏杀机……

FOOD MATTERS 食物影响钜深(预告片):

2)

现代食品工业提供我们食物更快、更多、更便宜。同时,也使我们产生更多疾病、更肥胖、更贫穷。

食品工业不想让你知道你所吃食物的真相,因为如果你知道了,很可能就不要吃了。

FOOD INC. 食品企业公司(摘录, 附中文字幕):

3)

在人类历史中,从来没有任何时代像我们现在吃得这么多、这么油、这么甜、这么残忍(饲养和屠宰动物方式)、这么遥远(运输食品)、这么不公义(对农夫和工人)、而且对身体这么的不利。其实没有人会特意吃出毛病、吃得不健康,大部分人只是因为不了解食品背后的真相……

*摘录自台湾专业食材作家朱慧芳的序

以资本利益为主导的食品市场中,人们基本上只吃得到货架上被筛选过的有限选择。会被放在货架上贩售的食品,必是有利可图的、好卖的,最好是消费者买过之后,还会重复再买,也就是所谓吃了会上瘾的东西。

*参考香港邝易行博士的《看懂食物标签》

从使用化学肥料、人工添加剂、基因改造、辐射(消毒过程)、到使用含毒素包装…,每一个涉及的步骤,只要有机会可以增加食品对消费者的吸引力,或减低成本,食品生产商都会乐于采用…… 消费者就像实验室里的白老鼠。

我们的粮食系統究竟出了什么问题?11 岁小男孩 Birke Baehr 知道;他做了很多研究,也付出行动带来改变。

对我们来说,若现在知道和改变,也还来得及。
