OK, watched this movie last night and it was awesome (I actually watched it twice)! The 2010 movie called Chow Down was produced by Julia Grayer and Gage Johnston. I read, write and live this kinda stuff every single day, that’s just what I do. This movie brought out even some new things for me to think about. The filmmakers do a super job of summarizing many of the issues and really bringing them home.
If you eat “food” you need to watch this movie! It will really help you understand that we are living in a time where what we are eating is making us sick and is at the root of most of the major health issues we are dealing with. In addition, you will learn that our “food” is not designed to be healthy for us, but rather for profitability.
To quote myself from last week’s posting called eat & drink whatever you want ~ we will fix it!
There is a lot of profit in selling “foods” that make us sick. There is also a lot of profit in fixing us when we become sick from the “foods” we ate. From a business perspective, this is an awesome business model, a self propelling money generating machine!
You will see from the movie that the government is not going to fix this. They are right in the middle of the whole mess.
The good news is you do not have to participate in this and Chow Down will show you how.
You may not be diabetic, have high cholesterol/blood pressure, heart disease or cancer, but these things are all driven by what you put into your body and your environment. By understanding what stimulates these diseases, you can make the right lifestyle choices for you, so that you do not have to deal with these problems in the future.
Here is the movie trailer
You can watch Chow Down for free on Hulu. Enjoy and share this with someone you care about!
