Attacking the Devil

“ATTACKING THE DEVIL unflinchingly documents how Harold Evans and the Insight team at The Sunday Times campaigned for the victims of Thalidomide. How their campaign marked a British legal watershed. And how through this and other landmark campaigns, Harold Evans secured his place as a legend of investigative journalism.”

The people making the drugs your family is taking are in it for the money. This eye-opening story will shake your belief in pharmaceuticals.

This film really hit home with me because of Vioxx. I’m convinced if I hadn’t stopped taking Vioxx when I did, I wouldn’t be here now.  When I showed the studies to my doctor, he still endorsed the drug.

Blue Gold: World Water Wars

Water is life. No water, no life. We don’t hear anything about it on the news but our water is being stolen, our access is drying up. Heck, here in California they are talking about relocating a large portion of the population.  I’d like to know how they plan on doing that.

Mineral water being poured from a bottle into ...

There is so much information in this video, it really covers the entire subject. It’s not a definitive work but if you have an interest in our water I would encourage you to watch the movie, and/or buy the book.  Then decide if there is something you could be doing.  This is an issue that may involve all of us someday if we aren’t careful.

This is what Amazon has to say,

Maude Barlow and Tony Clarke, two of the most active opponents to the privatization of water show how, contrary to received wisdom, water mainly flows uphill to the wealthy. Our most basic resource may one day be limited: our consumption doubles every twenty years—twice the rate of population increase.

At the same time, increasingly transnational corporations are plotting to control the world’s dwindling water supply. In England and France, where water has already been privatized, rates have soared, and water shortages have been severe. The major bottled-water producers—Perrier, Evian, Naya, and now Coca-Cola and PepsiCo—are part of one of the fastest-growing and least-regulated industries, buying up freshwater rights and drying up crucial supplies.

A truly shocking exposé that is a call to arms to people around the world, Blue Gold shows in frightening detail why, as the vice president of the World Bank has pronounced, “The wars of the next century will be about water.”

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.
