We are being literally fed grain-based slop in the name of corporate profits. Big agriculture companies–in their collective quests for profit–have pushed bad science down our weak-willed politicians’ throats.
We’ve all seen Super Size Me, right? Try Fat Head:
Fat Head is a tiny indie “mockumentary” that counters Super Size Me. It ends up going beyond just mocking Spurlock and presents an accessible and fascinating counterargument to modern nutritional ideals.
The protagonist of this one is programmer-turned-armchair-nutritionist Tom Naughton. While I don’t agree with everything he does in the film (such as drinking diet sodas and meandering too much trying to dig at Morgan Spurlock), he’s entertaining enough and I think he really did his homework on this one. The claims will shock you and the evidence will make you think.
