I thought it was interesting that the documentary mentioned the addictive properties of modern, processed food. More focus on that probably could have made this an awesome documentary, but much of this was glossed over. Only later in the film do we find out that the people we've been hearing from aren't experts per se, but have a definite stake in getting people to buy their particular books or buy their particular juicer. OF COURSE the juicer guy thinks everyone should start pulping local flora and drinking it. OF COURSE the self-help author thinks people should self-help themselves to one or two of her books.
I did laugh when the "scary list of bad chemicals" ran past the screen as they were going on about natural, natural, natural. I recognized two of the scary chemicals as extract from orange peels (limonene and linalool).
I guess I was looking for something a bit more hard-nosed about exactly what bad food does that is so bad, and why. This isn't that documentary. But it has some worthwhile parts, at first. Watch the first half, and then go about your day.
There are a lot of topics covered in this brief ninety minute presentation. For me, the film starts on incredibly strong ground as it deals directly with concerns of diet and nutrition. The section on dieting is both amusing and disturbing, and the criticisms presented about food manufacturers, distributors, and regulators hit the target mercilessly. Just the facts about so-called fat-free products should be shown to every household in the world that thinks it's making smarter choices! Sugar, of course, takes an expected (and warranted) beating by the experts. We even see Jamie Oliver (flavored milk's biggest opponent) at the 2010 TED conference. But if you follow this educational movement, you'll recognize many of this movie's participants (it is by the makers of Food Matters).Read more ›
A person who puts out a fire in their house is not called a fire safety expert. As such, a person who is able to lose weight and writes a book about it should not be called a weight loss expert.
I agree that things need to change, but I believe that people should be motivated to change based on fact and not opinion like this movie exhibits.
