Movie Info

This documentary examines the current state of America's food supply, and suggests that the over-industrialization of food production is making the nation sicker by the moment. The documentary analyzes the proliferation of chemical additives in "natural" foods, looks at the relationship between the lack of nutrients in the American diet and the nation's rising health care costs, and offers tips for system detoxification. ~ Carly Wray, Rovi

Audience Reviews for Food Matters

Interesting? Most definitely, but it is also exceptionally one sided. The closest the film comes to even incorporating an actual doctor, is an animated befuzzled looking one. Surely just a few words from a doctor would have been welcome. A lot of the claims are also unsubstantiated which makes them very interesting, but highly questionable. There is no question that foods can help with health, but can they really be a cure for cancer? The talking heads are all very passionate about their beliefs and that can be very involving. If these claims can be proved in an unbiased and two sided documentary then this would be life changing material. As it is, it's a lot of opinions that, on the plus side, will make you go out and do your own research.

More educational than entertaining, I almost felt at the end of the movie there was going to be a 1-800 number to call and buy some kind of "diet program". While the information is interesting (sort of) it does not take into account the economics of food, many would eat healthier if it was an affordable option.
