THE FOOD CHAIN IS NO LONGER "NATURAL". . . OR WHAT IT USED TO BE DO YOU KNOW WHAT YOU'RE EATING ? ? ?
"Food" is a 30-minute documentary that investigates how demand for more and cheaper food has dramatically altered the entire food chain. Today, food production revolves around
efficiency - the ability to produce more for less.
The ramifications of this mindset are wide-ranging 

and far-reaching.
As KPBS' Joanne Faryon reports, "the food chain no longer looks like it used to."  Fish no longer eat other fish, and cattle eat very little grass, which is their natural food source.  Instead, cattle eat corn, chickens eat corn and fish, and fish eat cows and poultry.  Similarly, fresh produce like
fruits and vegetables are primarily
sold to foreign markets.

California oranges, for example, are exported to far 

flung places like Japan, while Americans eat oranges from Australia - presumably because Americans prefer the deeper orange color, and the fact that they're easier to peel.  

As a result the carbon footprint of most 

foods sold in your local grocery store is massive, having made its way thousands of miles from where it was grown.
