What if most of our modern diseases are really just symptoms of the same problem? The Magic Pill is a character-driven documentary that follows doctors, patients, scientists, chefs, farmers and journalists from around the globe who are combating illness through a paradigm shift in eating. And this simple change -- embracing fat as our main fuel -- is showing profound promise in improving the health of people, animals and the planet.
Little reference to actual data, the real take away is to eat unprocessed whole foods. They didn't demonstrate that a ketogenic whole food diet is better than any other balanced whole food diet.
A bit biased towards animal products (I don't care either way but I smelled an agenda), again with no data to explain why animal sourced fats or proteins are better than other sources. Some dubious claims that our ancestors are mostly meat - hunter gatherers get most nutrition from veg and fruit because hunts are only occasionally successful.
Shame that a doco based around the fact that we have a lot of incorrect dietary information from government also tries to push a slight agenda which doesn't have supporting data.
