Delicious Pin It
(NaturalNews) It is a strange fact that we know so little about the food we eat and where it comes from. We simply go to the grocery store and pick out what we need without a thought to where it comes from or how it's grown or made. The four documentaries in this article give us insight, not only into how our food reaches the grocery store, but also to how our society has changed as a whole with centralized and industrialized food systems.

When watching these documentaries it becomes clear that the majority of the health problems we face in this country are directly caused by the foods we eat. We now live in a world where where we are surrounded by toxins, from the food we eat and the water we drink eat to the air we breathe. Each of these documentaries has unique elements that touch on different aspects of food, medicine, healthcare, disease, and how to live healthy.

Food Inc

Food Inc. is a great place to start because it steps back and presents a complete picture of our food system. This documentary explains how large corporations like Monsanto have done a complete overhaul of agriculture and farming. Their primary focus is efficiency rather than quality of food. This way of thinking has created problems that didn't used to exist. The corporations then solve these problems with high tech fixes which in turn cause their own problems. It's a vicious cycle that takes us further and further away from nature's design. From GMO's to fast food to the FDA, this film covers it all.

Food Matters

Food Matters is a film that takes a closer look at the fundamental problems we face in our current healthcare system. We have a pill for every ill. The theme of this film can be summed up by Hippocrates - "Let thy food be thy medicine and thy medicine be thy food." Nutritionists and world renowned physicians, including Charlottle Gerson, share their knowledge about how the nutrients in organically grown produce can cure and prevent everything from common illness to late stage cancer.

Fresh

This documentary features many stand out speakers. One of which is Joel Salatin, a farmer that has defied the flawed principles of monoculture and corporate farming. His farm consists of varied species of plants and animals, all of which thrive together in harmony as nature intended. He clearly speaks from a lifetime of experience as he eloquently depicts the flawed logic behind the centralized and industrialized food system. Joel is also featured in the documentary Food Inc. Fresh really drives home the idea that the more a food substance is processed the less nutritious it becomes.

The Gerson Miracle

This documentary is an absolute must watch for anyone who is suffering from cancer or knows someone who has cancer. The Gerson Miracle films and tells the stories of actual cancer patients; from their unsuccessful chemotherapy and surgeries to their miraculous recoveries at the Gerson healing centers. The Gerson therapy is an all-natural cancer treatment that involves drinking large quantities of vegetable juice prepared in a very specific way. Anyone who has given up hope in western medicine needs to see this film.

Conclusion

Each of these inspiring and powerful films features brilliant individuals who give it to us straight with concepts that just make sense. These aren't your typical boring documentaries. You'll be amazed by some of the facts you hear and some of the things you see. After watching them you'll have the understanding and the knowledge to make a difference in your health, your life, and the lives of your family.
