I'm a believer in nutrition for healing - and this film pissed me off...
on January 10, 2012
I'm all about food as medicine - I go to an naturopathic doctor, my husband is a physician, my career is devoted to getting solid nutrition in the mouths of children and youth, I pick up most of my food from farms or farmer's markets - I soak my grains, I make food from scratch, etc...okay, having said this - I hated this film. I have a history in research and the research in this film was subpar. I was on their side and they turned me off with their pseudo-experts and their over-the-top opinions. "Forks over Knives" is a much better resource on this matter. Another reviewer said it well - "this is not a Michael Pollan book - this is not Food, Inc., this is a conspiracy theory sales pitch." I encourage you to watch it and see - take it all in with a grain of salt.
