Fed Up: Frustrating!

I couldn’t wait to watch this movie. The trailer made it sound very interesting. It promised to educate me.  I was more than a little irritated that my husband had me wait about three days for him to order it from our DVD subscription service.

Well, I just finished watching the new movie, “Fed Up”, and I have to tell you, I’m fed up. The movie was basically a tirade against all sugar. I already knew that we eat too much sugar. But I also know that not all calories are created equal. I am just thankful I waited until it came, instead of paying for what amounts to little more than a misplaced and politically expedient tirade. I wouldn’t want my money to go to support people who pretend to tell the truth, but don’t.

Watch the Trailer

Producer Laurie David showed clips of Bill Clinton, Michelle Obama and demonized the capitalistic Republicans.  Why would they split an issue like this along political lines? Why would she only tell half the story? They tell you how bad sugar is and just how much of it we are eating but the closest they get to anything else is to cook and to eat real food. Not a word about the significant difference between HFCS and sugar, or what GMO’s are and how they are killing us.

Save your money.  Watch the video below instead, it’s free and it will educate you about the food you eat.

This is Fed Up! Genetic Engineering, Industrial Agriculture and Sustainable Alternatives. Fed Up was released in 2002 by Wholesome Goodness Productions. More than a decade later, it still remains relevant. Most of the statistics are worse now and we are starting to see the rise of insect-resistance to plants engineered to produce their own pesticides. There is still woefully little research available on long term ingestion of GMO foods — and how most foods in the US are still not labeled.

FED UP! answers many questions regarding genetic engineering, the Green Revolution, genetic pollution and modern pesticides through interviews with Marc Lappé and Britt Bailey from the Center for Ethics and Toxics, Peter Rosset and Anuradha Mittal from Food First, Vandana Shiva from the Research Center for Science, Technology and Ecology, Ignacio Chapela from UC Berkeley’s Department of Environmental Science, Policy and Management, Martina McGloughlin, Director of UC Davis’ Biotechnology Program and many others.

Tell the truth about our food. What most of eat isn’t really food.

‘America’ a vicious piece of propaganda

I have to admit, this movie set me off. About half way through the movie, I almost walked out. I was fuming mad.  After they said America was a bunch a thieves, and our country was based on plunder.  We stole the land from the Indians and kept slaves.  Nothing they said wasn’t true, but oh boy, was I hot.

I wonder if this person actually did get up and walk out before the second half? Posted in the Union Democrat on July 15, 2014:

Movie or political advertisement?
I was so shocked by a movie that was shown at the Regal Cinema theater that was so in violation of proper material to be shown to the public without notice of it being a political advertisement that I must protest somehow.

The movie I am referring to is “America,” it is a vicious, manipulative piece of propaganda twisting and presenting a history of our country so that it creates mistrust and fear.

I am shocked that our only movie source in Tuolumne County would show such a politically inflammable, unjust film.

Regal Theaters should be held accountable. It is unforgivable to foist that kind of offensive material on the unsuspecting public.

I wonder how exactly does one go about holding Regal Theaters accountable?

After staying to watch the second half, they told they rest of the story.  Restoring my faith in America and my faith in humanity.
Watch the trailer for yourself.  Are we a nation of thieves?  Watch the movie, you decide.
