Chipotle Takes vs Food

Posted by Dr. Mercola originally.

So the big news is that restaurant chain Chipotle Chicken has produced a 4 part series on Hulu poking fun at the industrial food industry. From a marketing standpoint its genius. Create a straw man who's fictional so that you don't get sued for talking about what you know is going on. It's important to use hyperbole so you can claim you weren't referencing anyone in particular. So I've embedded the first episode below for your viewing pleasure, but in case I need to say it, I'm unaware of any attempt to feed cows on oil pellets. That's the part that's made up--in case the exploding cows weren't enough of a giveaway. Also, in the interest of being honest I should disclose that I didn't screen the whole thing as I can't stand how many commercials hulu puts in things.

  • Chipotle has launched a web-based show called Farmed and Dangerous, a four-part satire aimed at revealing the "outrageously twisted and utterly unsustainable world of industrial agriculture”
  • Virtually all of the meat and poultry found in your local grocery store comes from animals raised in so-called confined animal feeding operations (CAFOs)
  • Large-scale factory farming is the cheapest way to raise meat, thereby allowing for the largest profits. But there’s a complete disregard for human health, the environment, and the ethical treatment of animals
  • According to a recent report, antibiotic-resistant bacteria was found in 81 percent of ground turkey, 69 percent of pork chops, 55 percent of ground beef, and 39 percent of raw chicken parts purchased in stores in 2011
  • Organic, grass-fed and finished meat that is humanely raised and butchered is really about the only type of meat that is healthy to eat
