Food Industry Problems

We have written and spoken much about the problems with the food industry and especially the evils of sugar in most of our food today.  This has contributed to many of the health issues facing Americans today. Below is material and information regarding what is really happening and a new movie, FED UP, depicting the issues.   We strongly encourage you to read the material carefully and view the movie.  As we have stated before exercise here at LAB5 is important but along with proper food incorporated into your lifestyle will produce long term results for optimum health!

The new movie, FED UP, out May 9, finally tells the truth about food and childhood obesity. 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. The movie is coming out not a day to soon. This week, a new study came out showing a 30 percent increase in type 2 diabetes in children since 2001. This is completely preventable, and it is criminal. Now, one in four teenagers has pre-diabetes or type 2 diabetes and one in 10 kids has a fatty liver and many have cirrhosis from drinking soda and eating sugar.

And when it opens on May 9, bring 10 people to the movie, bring it to your schools and communities and let’s start to tell the truth about how the food industry has taken our children hostage, that food terrorism is at the root of our current health and economic crisis and learn how we can take back our health.Wishing you health and happiness,
