Documentaries
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
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.


Food Matters
Food 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.


Fresh
This 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.
