  1. One of my favorite documentaries in recent years is"The Future of Food"-an in-depth look at what actually goes into making the food that ends up in your local grocery store.If you want to learn about genetically modified crops,patented pesticide-resistant seeds and the fall of the small-time farmer,you should check out this documentary.Luckily, a company called SnagFilms has made it available online…for free.
