Do you ever wonder why statistics on obesity, diabetes, and cardiovascular diseases continue to worsen over time despite tremendous advancements in modern medicine? So bad now that a whole new generation of young Americans, and I mean really young in age, are being diagnosed with these same diseases at an earlier and earlier age. Of course, these are complex problems with multi-faceted causes. But have you ever had a hunch that one of the key causes might be our food and drink? Well, wonder no more….
The new movie, FED UP, out in major theaters near you on May 9 (this Friday), finally tells the truth about food and childhood obesity. According to Dr. Mark Hyman, “It is the movie we have been waiting for. It will change how we think and act forever about this problem. It is a powerful indictment of how the food industry hooks us on addicted processed foods laden with hidden sugars.”
Dr. Hyman (featured in the movie) discusses the latest research revealing a 30% increase in Type 2 diabetes in children since 2001. Now, one in four teenagers has pre-diabetes or Type 2 diabetes, one in 10 kids have a fatty liver, and many have cirrhosis from drinking soda and eating sugar.
Do these statistics sound “normal” to you?
Watch the movie trailer below for a brief intro and then go watch this movie for a personal awakening experience. Heck, let me suggest that you take your entire family out, young and old, and watch this movie together. It might be the best thing you do for your kids!
