Description: This eye-opening documentary follows an experiment in a small village in the mountains of France where the town's mayor has decided to make the school lunch menu organic, with much of the food grown locally. He argues that unless we act now to change industrial models of agricultural production that rely on petro-chemical fertilizers and insecticides, our children will be condemned to rapidly deteriorating health in the form of cancers, infertility and other illnesses linked to environmental factor. Featuring interviews with children, parents, teachers, health care workers, farmers, elected officials, scientists and researchers, "Food Beware" takes a powerful look at the abuses of the food industry, the challenges and rewards of safe food production, and the practical solutions that everyone can take part in. This remarkable story of one community's crusade to save their children's health is both food for thought and a blueprint for a growing revolution.
