50 Shocking Facts About Your Food Comments

Pig's cheeks and connective tissue, horse meat, frog legs aren't so shocking facts, they aren't even that disgusting. Sure it was sad how chickens were raised and ducks were forced fed, it made my throat ache, it might even make me want to go vegetarian... but no. Now it makes sense not to try eating things I don't like cause they have no good nutritional values. Overall, I liked it. The most annoying thing was Dr. Toni Steer, as I'm not an english native speaker, she was barely understandable. Betting it on her low voice, so why not increase the volume? Cause it makes the rest of the video so effing loud as soon as her part finishes that the sudden burst of volume scares things out of me.

It's an okay documentary, nothing special. Most of the facts were obvious and I already knew. I give it a 6/10.

Wow so basically dont eat healthy foods or fatty foods, dont drink water or pop.......good doc but i do think this is a bit dated as somethings have changed since then...especially school dinners thanks to Jamie Oliver :)

one thing i do have to nitpick is though why add the frogs legs..? Just cause eating frogs legs are nasty? I've eaten horse and donkey before too. I've eaten chicken duck rabbit pig and cow too. I do not see why these deserved a mention in shocking food facts.

I'd say I was aware of roughly 40 out of the 50 facts already. The roughly 10 new facts I learnt were quite disturbing and beeing reminded of all other 40 facts I alreayd knew about does make one think can we really be living in a world like this and why does nobody know about these facts. But yes our planet can only healthily support 2-3 billion people maximum. If we want to house more than 3 billion people on our planet we must genetically modify our crops so they grow bigger (but have less nutrients per gram) we must force feed our livestock and make chickens grow 3 times faster with growth additives, use more pesticides to reduce lost crops etc. We now house 7 billion people on this planet and we are starting to feel the effects. Expected population by 2050 is 50 billion people I think? Well we will never make it that far the way we are going now. It's like watching a space ship try to reach mars with only half the required fuel in the tank. We will never reach 50 billion, our planet can't support more than we have at the moment. 7 billion is loads. But people are still having 7 kids on average in developing countries which is tripling our population every 20-30 years. Ah well its too late now, might as well carry on living in ignorance and make the best of the time we have. The inevitable can't be changed now even if we tried. We have past the point of no return in my opinion. I just hope I am not alive to witness the crap our generation is putting our next generation through. We are on a journey to a certain doom, these 50 food facts are peanuts in the bigger scheme of things to be honest lol.

Why not include "Drink little water, die.. drink too much, drown!"? ...Could say it is common knowledge, but far from being facts when it comes to 21st century science. To be fair, entertaining.

Wow!!! Makes you think twice about what you are eating and where it came from. To think that parmesan came from calf is disgusting. Great watch 5/5

I knew most of these facts, they were just common knowledge. But after the chicken's, pig's, calves and other animals. I am thinking of becoming a vegetarian and never eating Parmesan cheese again.

Not really that gross. Just read about the chicago meat packing industry years ago and that will make this film seem like a kids movie. This movie was more of a nutritional wake-up. Most of the facts were obvious and lame.
