Excellent Summary on the current state of Nutritional knowledge
This documentary is aimed at those people who are curious about their health and what they eat. Presented in a way that quite entertaining and not too dry!
There is so much nutritional mis-information around it can be very tricky to try and make any sense of it all. Sadly, in my opinion, 'Nutritional Science' doesn't really exist at the moment. So many highly qualified experts disagree with each other. All this tells me personally, as a reasonably well read lay person, is that these opposing camps can't all be right, or wrong I guess!
Most professional health-care people are bound by their professional bodies to keep to a script, so can't really be trusted or expected to support anything outside what they are told or guided to do. Thankfully this is slowly changing as the 'Wisdom of the Crowds' is really passing them by, at an every increasing pace as individuals find out what works for them.
This movie / documentary will give the open-mined person a good heads up on a certain perspective or way of eating and living. They are then free to make their own life choices and hopefully see some changes or results that may help them as an individual.
WARNING - once you engage with the information here you cannot un-learn!! It may well be life changing or even life-saving for some...
