Happy Food Day! I already started observing today with Health news for the week of Food Day, but I'm far from done with the event. Today, I'm going to continue a project that began with Food Fight! Thoughts on liberalism and conservatism inspired by the Preface to Food, Inc. and resumed with On Thanksgiving eve, I present "Food, Inc." Follow over the jump for the extra credit worksheet my students can complete in addition to the one for the film. This one accompanies the first part of Chapter 4 of the Food, Inc. book, "Food, Science, and the Challenge of World Hunger--Who Will Control the Future?" by Peter Pringle, the author of the other book titled Food, Inc., Food, Inc., From Mendel to Monsanto.
Discuss the pros and cons of this form of biotechnology.
I'm not done yet with Food Day. Stay tuned from Food Day news from campuses on the campaign trail, which I'll schedule to post at 8 PM EDT tonight.
