Here we have put together some videos that help to inform and expose the truth about what you eat and the possible hidden dangers you may be unaware of. Many of us know the basics of a need to avoid lots of sugar, fat and processed foods in our diet. But what many people don't know are the other ingredients and chemicals that are hidden in our food and that they are wreaking all kinds of havoc on our bodies. Being an informed consumer is becoming more and more necessary in order to stay healthy and to maintain your physical and emotional wellness. These videos go beyond a basic desire to just lose weight and eat healthy, and into a whole other world of real physical healing through the use of food as our first and best defense. They will also expose the corruption and conspiracies behind why our civilization is becoming more sick and unhealthy as well as offer some inspiration and ideas to getting better.
Fat, sick and nearly dead
Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead is a 2010 American documentary film which follows the 60-day journey of Australian, Joe Cross, across the United States as he follows a juice fast to regain his health under the care of Dr. Joel Fuhrman, Nutrition Research Foundation's Director of Research.
Following his fast and the adoption of a plant-based diet, Cross lost 100 pounds and discontinued all medications. During his road-trip Cross meets Phil Staples, a morbidly obese truck driver from Sheldon, Iowa, in a truck stop in Arizona and inspires him to try juice fasting.
Super Size me
Several legal suits have been brought against McDonald's Restaurants that they are knowingly selling food that is unhealthy. Some of the court decisions have stated that the plaintiffs would have a claim if they could prove that eating the food every day for every meal is dangerous. As such, documentarian Morgan Spurlock conducts an unscientific experiment using himself as the guinea pig: eat only McDonald's for thirty days, three meals a day.
In Food, Inc., filmmaker Robert Kenner lifts the veil on our nation's food industry, exposing the highly mechanized underbelly that's been hidden from the American consumer with the consent of our government's regulatory agencies, USDA and FDA. Our nation's food supply is now controlled by a handful of corporations that often put profit ahead of consumer health, the livelihood of the American farmer, the safety of workers and our own environment. We have bigger-breasted chickens, the perfect pork chop, insecticide-resistant soybean seeds, even tomatoes that won't go bad, but we also have new strains of E. coli — the harmful bacteria that causes illness for an estimated 73,000 Americans annually. We are riddled with widespread obesity, particularly among children, and an epidemic level of diabetes among adults. Food, Inc.reveals surprising — and often shocking truths — about what we eat, how it's produced, who we have become as a nation and where we are going from here.
The Future of Food
This 2004 documentary offers an in-depth investigation into the disturbing truth behind the unlabeled, patented, genetically engineered foods that have quietly filled U.S. grocery store shelves for the past decade. Shot on location in the U.S., Canada and Mexico, The Future of Food examines the complex web of market and political forces that are changing what we eat as huge multinational corporations seek to control the world's food system. The film also explores alternatives to large-scale industrial agriculture, placing organic and sustainable agriculture as real solutions to the farm crisis today. The Future of Food reveals that there is a revolution going on in the farm fields and on the dinner tables of America, a revolution that is transforming the very nature of the food we eat.
