Americans have a long-standing love affair with food — the modern supermarket has, on average, 47,000 products — but, do we really know what goes into making the products we so eagerly consume? David Brancaccio talks with filmmaker Robert Kenner, the director of Food, Inc. , which takes a hard look at the secretive and surprising journey food takes on the way from processing plants to our dinner tables. The two discuss why contemporary food processing secrets are so closely guarded, their impact on our health and another surprising fact: how consumers are actually empowered to make a difference.
