The Meatrix: Still a Must-See

It’s been awhile since The Meatrix came out, and many of you conscientious cooks have already seen it. For those who haven’t, and whose interest in factory farming may have been peaked for the first time by last week’s Cargill Pork Ad, I urge you to check it out.

The Meatrix is a must-see for anyone who wants to know (or thinks they don’t want to know) where their meat comes from. It’s not an alarmist piece of vegetarian propaganda (this non-vegetarian finds it very informative and inspiring for the way she eats and cooks), but rather a humorous, and often frightening look at how factory-farmed meat (that’s any meat you buy that doesn’t specifically say it’s not factory farmed) is raised, slaughtered, packaged, and brought to your plate.
