In the tradition of Michael Moore (Sicko, Bowling for Columbine) and Morgan Spurlock (Super Size Me, 30 Days), Food Matters is a hard hitting, fast-paced look at our current state of health.
Discouraged by the terrible side effects that pharmaceutical drugs were having on the health of their families, nutritionists-turned-filmmakers James Colquhoun and Laurentine ten Bosch set off on a path of discovery into what other alternatives might exist.
After studying Nutrition through the Global College of Natural Medicine in California, they realized that the health challenges within their own families were in fact a very real representation of what was happening all over the country.
They discovered that with nutritionally empty, processed foods, chemical additives and a tendency to rely upon pharmaceutical drugs, it’s no wonder that modern society is getting sicker.
Food Matters then sets about uncovering the trillion dollar worldwide “sickness industry” and points out that not every problem requires costly, major medical attention and reveals many alternative therapies that can be more effective, more economical and less harmful than conventional medical treatments.
In what promises to be the most contentious idea put forward, the filmmakers have interviewed several world leaders in nutrition and natural healing who claim that not only are we harming our bodies with improper nutrition, but that the right kind of foods, supplements and detoxification can be used to treat and cure chronic illnesses as fatal as terminally diagnosed cancer.
James and Laurentine have independently funded the film from start to finish in order to remain as unbiased as possible, delivering a clear, concise and direct message to the world.
In Food Matters, you can find out what works, what doesn’t and what’s killing you. Becoming informed about the choices you have for you and your family’s health could save your life.
