Interesting, entertaining and powerful film. A must see.
A real eye opener telling you what sugar really does to your body. It blows your mind on the amount of damage it does to us. We had an inkling but did not realised how bad it is. People think they are eating healthy when they are actually poisoning themselves.
The film is about this very healthy normal guy going on an experiment for 60 days and eating food that people would consider healthy, like low fat and healthy breakfast cereals, fruit juices and so on.
He put on 8.6kg in 60 days with the same calorie intake. He gets borderline diabete 2. He gets fatty liver and It also affects his mood and behaviour. He gets highs then lows. Jumps up and down then is lethargic. Although he ate a lot, he was always hungry.
The film has also a small section on an aboriginal community where their only food intake is from a supermarket and where a lot of people dies by 40. The film moves on to the USA and Kentucky where children as young as 2 and 3 need a dentist to sort out their rotten teeth. Pepsie has a drink called Mountain Dew which is addictive in a sense that within 20minutes people have to drink more.
Sugar is a 50 Billion dollars industry and those big companies have paid researchers to write reports in favour of sugar. The government then accepted those reports and go pro sugar, dieticians and other food specialists as well as health groups like heart foundation and more also receive payments in exchange for accepting sugar and trying to dispel worries.
People are then told that they are fat because they are lazy and eat too much when in reality it is the sugar.
It is unbelievable.
Considering the amount of money big companies get from adding sugar to their product, I am amazed this film is showing. I would have thought somehow those companies would have had it banned.
All the above are my opinion from viewing That Sugar Film. I would like to see it again as there is a lot of information and will for sure get it if it ever goes on DVDs
