Cinemascope: Fed Up

Cinemascope is a regular blog post where I will share with you movies and TV shows I think are worth watching.

Released in 2014.

Plot line: Upending the conventional wisdom of why we gain weight and how to lose it, Fed Up unearths a dirty secret of the American food industry-far more of us get sick from what we eat than anyone has previously realized. Filmmaker Stephanie Soechtig and TV journalist Katie Couric lead us through this potent exposé that uncovers why-despite media attention, the public's fascination with appearance, and government policies to combat childhood obesity-generations of American children will now live shorter lives than their parents did.

If you've been reading my blog, you know that I decided to get off the sugar ride last year after coming to terms with the dangers of sugar. This documentary will inform, educate, and make you mad. After watching it, you'll look at food in a entirely new light and want to take action. Both personal and political.

You can see the trailer here. If you have yet to see it, this is a movie worth watching.
