An Interesting Documentary
My sister and I recently watched the documentary Food Matters. The documentary discussed America's reliance on the pharmaceutical industry, in conjunction with our terrible eating habits. It presents "vitamin therapy" as a proven highly affective way to combat most illnesses, and attributes a great deal of sickness (namely instances of chronic pain, which is one of the leading ailments experienced by American citizens), to vitamin deficiencies. High dosages of vitamins can directly prevent, or even cure, these illnesses. However, largely due to corporate interests, this approach to medicine is not taken seriously by the medical community. Certainly a fascinating, if not shocking, take on public health within America!
