We know so little about the food we eat and
where it comes from. We simply go to the grocery store and pick out what
we need without a thought to where it comes from or how it's grown or
made. These documentaries give us insight, not only
into how our food reaches the grocery store, but also to how our society
has changed as a whole with centralized and industrialized systems.
When watching these documentaries it becomes clear that
the majority of the health problems we face in this country are directly
caused by the foods we eat. We now live in a world where where we are
surrounded by toxins, from the food we eat and the water we drink eat to
the air we breathe.Each of these each documentary has unique elements
that touch on different aspects of food, medicine, healthcare, disease,
and how to live healthy.
FLUORIDEGATE An American Tragedy
Dr. Kennedy is a leading toxicologist and understands the politics and the business behind fluoridation.
Food Inc. is a great
place to start because it steps back and presents a complete picture of
our food system. This documentary explains how large corporations like
Monsanto have done a complete overhaul of agriculture and farming. Their
primary focus is efficiency rather than quality of food. This way of
thinking has created problems that didn't used to exist. The
corporations then solve these problems with high tech fixes which in
turn cause their own problems. It's a vicious cycle that takes us
further and further away from nature's design. From GMO's to fast food
to the FDA, this film covers it all.
Matters is a film that takes a closer look at the fundamental problems
we face in our current healthcare system. We have a pill for every ill.
The theme of this film can be summed up by Hippocrates - "Let thy food
be thy medicine and thy medicine be thy food." Nutritionists and world
renowned physicians, including Charlottle Gerson, share their knowledge
about how the nutrients in organically grown produce can cure and
prevent everything from common illness to late stage cancer.
documentary features many stand out speakers. One of which is Joel
Salatin, a farmer that has defied the flawed principles of monoculture
and corporate farming. His farm consists of varied species of plants and
animals, all of which thrive together in harmony as nature intended. He
clearly speaks from a lifetime of experience as he eloquently depicts
the flawed logic behind the centralized and industrialized food system.
Joel is also featured in the documentary Food Inc. Fresh really drives
home the idea that the more a food substance is processed the less
nutritious it becomes.
