This movie changed my life
2 September 2015 | by See all my reviews

Yes, that's right. I said it. This movie changed my life. Well, it did so might as well acknowledge it and send a big warm thank you to the folks that made it.

Since watching the movie I've changed my diet completely. I wanted to wait about a month before I wrote this review just to make sure it took hold and actually did change my life. It seems now though that this one really got into me deep. Message received loud and clear.

I actually feel stupid for the many decades of damage that I've done to my body for being so ignorant about sugar and the products we consume every day. I also feel betrayed by society as a whole for not recognizing this sooner, and still not doing anything about it to this day. Why are we so stupid?

Sugar is killing us and nobody is doing anything about it. Well, I suppose not everybody. The makers of this film and probably a handful of others are working on the awareness, and I will also do my part telling everyone I know about this film.

If you care about living and being healthy and you care about the health of your family and friends, watch this film, tell them to watch, and then tell them to spread the word.
