DVD - 2014
Average Rating:

This chronicles what director Lathe Poland learned after he was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes. He sought to find out why he got sick, because he didn't fit the classic picture of an adult onset diabetes sufferer. He quickly learned that much of what he knew about healthy eating was based on myths or fifty-year-old science. He searches out why Americas modern food culture is killing us. The upside? There is a lot that can be done!

Absolutely excellent informational DVD on a major health subject.

Involvement of Gary Taubes really makes it (see his print books for even more detailed info).

There were a couple blips when other contributors got involved (a focus on "real food" at one point meant well, but could be easily misinterpreted!).

Highly recommended!!!
