Good intention, bad execution
27 February 2019 | by elvegaaSee all my reviews

While there's a good intention of awareness behind this documentary, there's a tremendous lack of rigour and scientific facts. It's like to hear someone talking about the topic from someone who only has been informed by internet blogs, facebook facts, and a little of self-thinking nonsense.

In no more than 10 minutes a guy called "Don Tolman" credited as a "Wholefood Expert" (yeah...) says some invent nonsense like "The prefix 'nut-' in 'nutrition' comes from the Latin 'nux' (?) which means 'light' (??). 'Nutrition' means 'process of light' (??!!)" You don't need to study latin to know that light in latin is Lux. Ok. But also how the hell do you correlate light with nutrition? What kind of idiot is the target of this sentence?

Also many facts in this documentary are based on poor statements like "Would you feed your kids with Propylene glycol, which is used as antifreeze? No, of course not! However, well, big surprise! is used in most ice creams!! Yeah!! Ice cream is very bad!!" (while propylene glycol, which is used as an edible antifreeze for food not for engines, is considered safe to ingest.. Way more than the sugar in the same icecream.)

Don't waste your time watching this.
