Food Matters examines how the over industrialization of food production is a leading factor in the declining health of Americans. The film argues that despite the millions of dollars spent every year on research to find new magical cures, Americans still suffer from everyday illnesses and disease.
As we allow our foods to be depleted of any nutritional value and instead be replaced by chemical additives, it is no wonder that we are relying on pharmaceutical drugs to mend our malnourished bodies. Food Matters sets out to expose the worldwide trillion dollar sickness industry by presenting us with the growing scientific evidence that nutrient-dense foods can not only help us cure disease naturally, but is more viable than conventional medical treatments.
Featuring interviews with world leaders in nutrition and natural healing who claim that not only are we harming our bodies with improper nutrition, but that the right kind of foods, supplements and detoxification can be used to treat chronic illnesses as fatal as terminally diagnosed cancer.
The documentary helps us rethink the belief systems that we are being fed by medical health care establishments, proving that switching the basic things in our lives can help us avoid costly medical treatments.
