 Feeding Frenzy - The Food Industry, Marketing & the Creation of a Health Crisis
(63 min., 2013, UM Duluth Library Multimedia RA645.O23 F43 2013)

"Over the past three decades, obesity rates in the U.S. have more than doubled for children and tripled for adolescents -- and a startling 70% of adults are now obese or overweight. The result has been a widening epidemic of obesity-related health problems, including coronary heart disease, high blood pressure, stroke, and Type 2 diabetes. While discussions about this spiraling health crisis have tended to focus on the need for more exercise and individual responsibility, Feeding Frenzy trains its focus squarely on the responsibility of the processed food industry and the outmoded government policies it benefits from. It lays bare how taxpayer subsidies designed to feed hungry Americans during the Great Depression have enabled the food industry to flood the market with a rising tide of cheap, addictive, high calorie food products, and offers an engrossing look at the tactics of the multibillion-dollar marketing machine charged with making sure that every one of those surplus calories is consumed."

Related: The American Government subsides, via corn subsidies, hog production (“hog” is the preferred term in the industry). On 30 May 2013 it was announced that China's Shuanghui to buy US pork producer [Smithfield] for $4.7bn -- BBCNews. It is a major transfer to Chinese ownership of the largest pork producer in the United States: China-US pork deal 'significant'-- BBCNews (30 May 2013).

Chinese are the biggest pork consumers in the world.

Question: Should the U.S.A. subsidize a Chinese company with American taxpayers’ dollars?
