Today I share some insights into the movie Fed Up from the people of an unconventional truth and has Katie Couric. It is a straight shooting video that points out that we are just being lied to through the media as the food industries continues to feed us information through the media that is just a bunch of lies. You find out that a calorie is not a calorie. There is a great example of 160 calories almonds and 160 calories from a soft drink. You see where the drink just gets burned through the liver and turned into fat.
Where is The Sugar Information?
When I look at a box of Raisin bran, I see the daily percentages for fiber, salt, etc, but not for sugar. That's weird. When I look at a 12 ounce can of Mountain Dew there are 46 grams of sugar. There is no clue what percentage of my daily intake it is. Well according to the World Health Organization, that's because that one can of Mountain Dew (or insert your own sot drink of choice) may have close to DOUBLE the amount of sugar you need PER DAY. That ONE CAN is DOUBLE. They recommend 25 grams (ok, so almost double).
The movie explains that sugar in these MAMMOTH amounts is toxic. Our liver can't handle it and we end up turning it into fat.
Another cool part of the movie is where they show the tobacco heads telling congress that there is no link to cigarettes and lung cancer. Then the next clip is someone from the soft drink world telling congress that (according to a study that THEY PAID FOR) there is no link to soft drinks and diabetes. Really?
Why Isn't This More Well Known?
Because industry doesn't want it known. We ran tobacco right out of the country (almost), and they don't want to be next. When the mayor of new york tried to ban 64 ounce drinks everyone said he was trying to put in a police state. They get lots of publicity about how the government is trying to put in place a “Nanny state”. They don't want it know that 80% of schools take money from Coke & Pepsi. They don't want it know than Pizza is now considered a vegetable (seriously?). How does this happen? Because the company that owns 80% of the pizza marketing in schools makes billions of dollars every year.
