If You Are What You Eat; Food Matters Asks “What Are You?”

Written by on July 17, 2009 in Featured, Health, Videos - 7 Comments

Here at SocialEarth, I have had the opportunity to write about two important movies that deserve some recognition, The Beautiful Truth and FOOD, Inc. Now a new documentary has been brought to my attention that is changing the way I (and many others) eat and live. Food Matters combines the subjects of the first two films together in the latest film about the evils of Big Pharm and Big Ag. Both have been gnawing at me for years now, I did a lot research on my own and was appalled by what I found. But when I tried to share my results in a persuasive speech my freshman year of college, my professor gave me an infuriating ‘F’ – my only F – ever! He claimed that my topic on alternative vs conventional medicine ‘had no proof’. Finally, though sadly, I now feel validated.

I will admit that I did not have the production quality or credible witnesses that the Food Matters film has. If that experience has taught me anything it is that the truth, or ‘proof’ in my case, will eventually come to light. In past generations people didn’t question their government, their doctors or what was on their plate, they just ate it! Well I am very happy to see all three of those things changing.

Food Matters is a movie about the evil of the trillion dollar a year cycle of sickness. It’s about nutritionally depleted foods with genetically modified ingredients and a slurry of chemicals that we cannot avoid in our diet, and then when we feel horrible, we top it off with a concoction of pharmaceutical drugs, that makes for the sickest we have been since the discovery of soap and water.

Food Matters has an incredible team of contributers for the film, with a mile long list of credentials. The film was shot in 8 cities and was entirely funded by the producer/director duo of James Colquhoun and Laurentine ten Bosch, to allow the project to remain completely unbiased. Both studied nutrition through the Global College of Natural Medicine in Santa Cruz, California. And have been on a mission to reveal the truth about the lack of nutrition in our food and its connection to our health. And I have to thank them for it, if only I could get my professor to see it.

The best part is that you can purchase Food Matters or watch it now online! So what are you?

    Just finished this movie, what a different perspective! I had my thoughts about drugs and medicine, but food truly is the answer. All I can say is, wow. Must-watch.

    And thanks to my dear friend Dawn Marie for bringing this movie to my attention, I am so proud of her ‘transformation’.

    Its really nice Justine, hope you will have more movie about eating healthy, and protecting the environment while we eat, and also make clear some people’s opinions about grilled food, the benefits of charcoal grilling or the amount of nutrition in vegetables. People often misconcept that grilled food is poisonous and vegetables is green, but I don’t agree with that. It depends pretty much on how you make the food.
