Processed People
by Jeff and Sabrina Nelson

This insightful documentary is extremely well put together; the professional look and feel adds to its high credibility and value. Also adding to these are the experts interviewed in the film: Joel Fuhrman, Caldwell Esselstyn, Milton Mills, Jeff Novick, Pam Popper, Jay Gordon, Jeffrey Masson, John McDougall, and John Robbins. This film touches upon political issues, economical issues, health insurance issues, educational issues, pregnancy, baby and breast feeding issues, medical issues and of course health and nutrition issues and delivers the unforgettable message that we're a processed people.

We Americans think that we are so advanced today. We always hear that we are living longer than ever, that we have the the cleanest, safest, most advanced food preparation on the planet. But instead, we are brainwashed and we've gotten away from our natural state of being. Pills of every shape and color, procedures, surgeries, and countless doctor’s visits do not mean that we are living longer or better. Colored, artificially flavored and preserved, fried, and processed food is not technological advancement – it is a waste of our intelligence and resources. The engineered food business is bigger than Big Oil and that kind of money buys inconceivably large amounts of propaganda, misinformation and corrupted science. While Americans have unprecedented access to information, food choices, and medical treatment options, our health outcomes remain dismal. We're both overfed and undernourished. Over 50% of bankruptcies are caused by what has become known as "medical debt." Fast food, fast medicine, fast news, and fast lives have turned many Americans into a sick, uninformed, indebted, "processed" people.

The film is funny and sad too. It's logical and revolutionary. And it's ever so true! It makes us look at where we went so wrong and how we can get back on the right path -- the right path of amazing health, each day, every day, for the rest of your lives. It's possible to feel that good everyday, but it all begins with what we put into our mouth today.
