King Corn (2007)

Most people would enjoy the documentary “King Corn.”

Much of the film was shot in Greene, IA, where a former roommate’s family lives.

The documentary story follows the domino effect that occurred when corn subsidies and corporate-style farming changed farming, along with filling our foods with corn in some way or form such corn syrup.  The evils of cattle feedlots are also highlighted.  in all, quite interesting stuff.  There is not much that we can do about it, even if things are sort of scary to think much about.  Although my long absence from soda and preference towards to delicious grass-fed bison burgers maybe helps, my vice involving corn chips/Doritos, etc. certainly does not!
