For most Americans, the ideal meal is fast, cheap, and tasty. Food,
Inc. examines the costs of putting value and convenience over nutrition and
Director Robert Kenner explores the subject from all angles, talking to
authors, advocates, farmers, and CEOs, like co-producer Eric Schlosser (Fast
Food Nation), Michael Pollan (The Omnivore's Dilemma), Gary Hirschberg
(Stonyfield Farms), and Barbara Kowalcyk, who's been lobbying for more rigorous
standards since E. coli claimed the life of her two-year-old son.
The filmmaker takes his camera into slaughterhouses and factory farms where
chickens grow too fast to walk properly, cows eat feed pumped with toxic
chemicals, and illegal immigrants risk life and limb to bring these products to
market at an affordable cost. If eco-docs tends to preach to the converted,
Kenner presents his findings in such an engaging fashion that Food,
Inc. may well reach the very viewers who could benefit from it the most:
harried workers who don't have the time or income to read every book and eat
non-genetically modified produce every day.
Morgellons disease is an uncommon, unexplained skin disorder characterized by sores, crawling sensations on and under the skin, and fiber-like filaments emerging from the sores. It's not certain what these strings are.
The documentary Our Chemical Lives exposes these dangers, and calls for more aggressive attention from both regulatory agencies and an otherwise unsuspecting public. "The regulatory system that's been set up assumes that these chemical products are safe until proven otherwise," says Dr. Bruce Lanphear, a professor on the Faculty of Health Sciences at Simon Fraser University in British Columbia. "So, in the end what we're doing, each time we release another chemical onto the market which hasn't been sufficiently tested, is we’re doing this massive experiment on our children."
A history of the tobacco industry's lies and scams. From the US in 1953 to Africa today, the controversy between individual responsibility and corporate greed is portrayed in a lucid, undaunted manner.
From scientific frauds to working with organized crime, tobacco companies show their hidden agenda more clearly than ever in this theatrically released documentary.
Cancer is a growing worldwide epidemic, with staggering statistics: 20,000
people dying of cancer every day; 1 person out of 3 will be faced with cancer at
one point in their life; and 1 million Americans are diagnosed with cancer every year.
The standard treatment for cancer has been the same for many decades and is
comprised of surgery, radiation and chemotherapy, the latter two being toxic to
healthy cells in the human body.
These treatments, as well as the research surrounding cancer, generate
millions of dollars each year for the medical industry, with a typical cancer
patient spending on-average $50,000 to treat the disease.
Over the last century, several natural cancer treatments have been developed
and used to treat patients in the US and in other developed countries.
One example is a natural concoction of herbs called Essiac, created by nurse
Rene Caisse in Canada in the 1920?s. Another is an herbal cure created by Harry Hoxsey, who funded clinics in 17 states before they were all closed down by the FDA in the late 1950's.

By now everyone has seen crisscrossing streaks of white clouds trailing behind
jet aircraft, stretching from horizon to horizon, eventually turning the sky into a murky haze.
Our innate intelligence tells us these are not mere vapor trails from jet
engines, but no one yet has probed the questions: WHO is doing this and WHY.
With the release of this video, all of that has changed.
Here is the story of a rapidly developing industry called Geo-engineering,
driven by scientists, corporations, and governments intent on changing global
climate, controlling the weather, and altering the chemical composition of soil
and water - all supposedly for the betterment of mankind.
Although officials insist that these programs are only in the discussion
phase, evidence is abundant that they have been underway since about 1990 - and
the effect has been devastating to crops, wildlife, and human health.
We are being sprayed with toxic substances without our consent and, to add
insult to injury, they are lying to us about it. Do not watch this documentary
if you have high blood pressure.
There's nothing they are leaving untouched: the mustard, the okra, the bringe
oil, the rice, the cauliflower. Once they have established the norm: that seed
can be owned as their property, royalties can be collected. We will depend on
them for every seed we grow of every crop we grow. If they control seed, they
control food, they know it – it's strategic. It's more powerful than bombs. It's
more powerful than guns.
This is the best way to control the populations of the world. The story
starts in the White House, where Monsanto often got its way by exerting
disproportionate influence over policymakers via the “revolving door”. One
example is Michael Taylor, who worked for Monsanto as an attorney before being
appointed as deputy commissioner of the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in
1991. While at the FDA, the authority that deals with all US food approvals,
Taylor made crucial decisions that led to the approval of GE foods and crops.
Then he returned to Monsanto, becoming the company’s vice president for public policy.
Thanks to these intimate links between Monsanto and government agencies, the
US adopted GE foods and crops without proper testing, without consumer labeling
and in spite of serious questions hanging over their safety. Not coincidentally,
Monsanto supplies 90 percent of the GE seeds used by the US market.
Monsanto’s long arm stretched so far that, in the early nineties, the US Food
and Drugs Agency even ignored warnings of their own scientists, who were
cautioning that GE crops could cause negative health effects. Other tactics the
company uses to stifle concerns about their products include misleading
advertising, bribery and concealing scientific evidence.
The late Carl Sagan said (which is related to this documentary): We've
arranged a global civilization in which most crucial elements profoundly depend
on science and technology. We've also arranged things so that almost no one
understands science or technology. We might get away with it for a while, but
sooner or later, this combustible mixture of ignorance and power is going to
blow up in our faces. This documentary film poses the question: Are we
making Holes in Heaven? HAARP (High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program)
is a controversial high frequency radio transmitter, or "ionospheric heater,"
which is believed to be descended from the works of Nikola Tesla and is operated
by the U.S. Navy/Air Force and Phillip Laboratories in remote Gakona, Alaska.
Using HAARP, the military can focus a billion-watt pulsed radio beam into our
upper atmosphere, ostensibly for ionospheric research. This procedure will form
extremely low frequency waves and send them back to the Earth, enhancing
communications with submarines and allowing us to "see" into the Earth,
detecting anything from oil reserves to underground missile silos.
However, several researchers claim HAARP poses many dangers, including
blowing thirty-mile holes in the Earth's upper atmosphere. They also warn of
possible disruption of the subtle magnetic energies of our Earth and ourselves.
Holes in Heaven? is a prime example of grassroots filmmaking by producer Paula
Randol-Smith and Emmy-winning director Wendy Robbins. Narrated by Martin Sheen,
the documentary, investigates HAARP, its history and implications, and examines
the dangers and benefits of high and low frequencies and of electromagnetic
Dr. Stephanie Seneff discusses the potential connection between vaccines and autism. It's a hotly-debated topic. Here she gets specific into what ingredient in the vaccine may be linked to autism and other conditions. Find out what her research has found. You may think differently after watching this!
Possibly the most unthinkable story of the last million years is the rise of
the modern human culture. The cities we populate and the lives that we lead.
It is the environment that our children will inherit. But after a century of
exponential growth in population and consumerism people are questioning the
nature of modern life.
We're beginning to doubt our motivations and we're predicting environmental
destruction. In understanding human nature our current concerns look smaller,
more transient, with, potentially, a solution.
We've all got this weird mental illness called consumerism. We've all kind
of gone collectively psychotic. Chasing status, in public, with people who don't
really care and neglecting your own lovers and friends and neighbours and kids.
The consumption of material items as a means to acquire status is as much of
a trap as it is a set of freedoms. The pervasive nature of it has perhaps
crossed the threshold of us being able to cope with it and process the
information. The high street is actually a stressful, anxious place. We're
getting very little from it, but working incredibly hard to try and figure it
We have the delusion that we really have deep insight into ourselves already.
We're very sophisticated now in the early 21st century, but we're going to seem
incredibly naïve in another hundred years.
From the author: The definitive look into the history of vaccination. From cancer, to autism, to the purposeful sterilization of innocent people around the globe, find out why all
of these things are perfectly legal according to U.S. CODE - why the government considers you no different than cattle in their own law.
When I started this project almost three years ago I, like so many
researchers before me, got pulled into the same old quotes and statistics surrounding the history of vaccines and of vaccination.
And while these are important factors to consider regarding the vaccine
industry, the true nature of the term vaccination is now completely and utterly
foreign to what my previous misconception of that word was.
Before we can begin to comprehend just what the word vaccination really means
we must first break down into simple terms what the purpose of a vaccine is.
On the Caribbean island of the Dominican Republic, tourists flock to pristine
beaches, with little knowledge that a few miles away thousands of dispossessed
Haitians are under armed guard on plantations harvesting sugarcane, most of
which ends up in US kitchens. Cutting cane by machete, they work 14 hour days, 7 days a week, frequently without access to decent housing, electricity, clean
water, education, healthcare or adequate nutrition. The Price of Sugar follows a
charismatic Spanish priest, Father Christopher Hartley, as he organizes some of
this hemisphere's poorest people, challenging the powerful interests profiting
from their work. This film raises key questions about where the products we
consume originate, at what human cost they are produced and ultimately, where
our responsibility lies.
Documentary which follows the progress of 12-year-old Natasha and 13-year-old Naomi through their treatment at Rhodes Farm, a residential clinic which treats children with anorexia nervosa.
Filmed over four months, the film intimately depicts their painful struggle to overcome their obsessive relationship with food.
Anorexia nervosa is an eating disorder characterized by immoderate food restriction and irrational fear of gaining weight, as well as a distorted body self-perception. It typically involves excessive weight loss and is usually found more in females than in males. Because of the fear of gaining weight, people with this disorder restrict the amount of food they consume.
The documentary The Truth about Looking Young follows plastic surgeon Dr. Rozina Ali as she leaves the operating table behind for the limits of skin science and asks if it’s possible to make your skin look younger without the use of surgery.
Our skin is the most exposed organ of the body. Aging of the skin is an inevitable process but it can be managed when one gets to identify the steps suitable for them. The diet that a person takes can influence how young a person will look. The aging process can be altered by the type of food that a person eats.
RT investigates the fracking epidemic in rural areas all over the United States in this documentary. Industry representatives claim every possible precaution is taken in the natural resource extraction process that has become popular, and a lightning rod for criticism, in recent years, but residents in areas where extraction sites have been built coming down with a slew of unexplained illnesses and ailments are just one example of the data being compiled showing those precautions are not nearly effective enough.
Montana PBS's new documentary, Clearing the Smoke, reveals how cannabis acts on the brain and in the body to treat nausea, pain, epilepsy and potentially even cancer.Extensive interviews with patients, doctors, researchers and skeptics detail the promises and the limitations of medicinal cannabis. Even though the video has an American perspective, marijuana use is illegal throughout many countries of the world for reasons that are not clear.
This video is important because it mainly investigates the scientific basis underlying the medical benefits of marijuana use instead of focusing on the social, political and legal hysteria that have been attached to it.
It’s probably not something you think about every day, whether or not the foods you are eating could contain carcinogens, but with almost 1.5 million people diagnosed with some type of cancer just last year, perhaps it’s time to look at what is in our foods that could be causing such a huge number of new cancer patients. Here is a list of the top 10 foods that you most likely consume every day that may contain carcinogens or be suspected of causing cancer.
