Incomplete and rather PC picture
12 January 2018 | by rds_1See all my reviews

I had hopes for this documentary show. But in the end it only sniffs at the subjects and then focuses on the wrong thing. Dare I say that it is to distract from the real issues surrounding the subjects?

The first one about bees: Real issues like bee colony collapses are mentioned but in the end isn't much more than a footnote as it ends up focusing on honey fraud. It's mostly about the commercial side of things. Let alone that it informs us of the main culprit in bee colony collapses which if you have followed "real news" you already know it to be the (over) use of pesticides.

The second episode about allergies: The most probable cause for this increase we've seen the last 30 years is vaccination. There is a very strong link peanut allergy and vaccines in particular. But even though this episode mostly focuses on peanut allergy vaccines aren't even mentioned (as big pharma wouldn't want that of course). Again sniffing it but not daring to go further, disappointing.

I haven't watched any more episodes yet. Not sure if I will, probably not as I doubt that the rest of the episodes are any better.
