Storyline

"Let Thy Food Be Thy Medicine, And Thy Medicine Be Thy Food." - Hippocrates That is the message from the founding father of modern medicine echoed in this brave new documentary film brought to you by Producer-Directors James Colquhoun and Laurentine ten Bosch. 'Food Matters' is a hard hitting, fast paced look at our current state of health. Despite the billions of dollars of funding and research into new so-called cures we continue to suffer from a raft of chronic ills and every day maladies. Patching up an over-toxic and over-indulgent population with a host of toxic therapies and nutrient sparse foods is definitely not helping the situation. In a personal quest of discovery James & Laurentine together with a film crew and the editorial and production expertise of Enzo Tedeschi have set out on an independent mission to uncover the wholesome truth. The filmmakers have interviewed several world leaders in nutrition and natural healing who claim that not only are we harming our bodies ... Written by Anonymous

This is a basic introduction to a topic that needs more discussion!
17 January 2011 | by Powerbug777See all my reviews

This film has little new info but is presented in a way that the viewer can't shrug off. The message is ridiculously simple but has been all but lost among the mainstream of our society. The idea that vitamins and superfoods have tremendous benefits should hardly be considered pseudoscience.

I highly recommend watching and then doing your own research. Watch with your friends and discuss. As you can see from the reviews you will either enjoy it or be offended. (Anyone in big pharma can't help but hate it. The number of individuals who die as a result of properly taken medications is astonishing.)

After watching the film I definitely had a conviction to look more into vitamins for my family's health. We have since started going to an Dr. who stresses prevention and has given us guidance with vitamins and supplements(there are a lot out there and some are completely worthless).

If you are a Dr. and stress the importance of vitamins with your patients good for you. Our country must start being more proactive with it's health, we've ignored it for far too long!
