Kids with ADD, parents with cancer, grand parents with Alzheimer, that this sound familiar to you? Do you want to be part of the equation or do you care about you and and your family living in a healthy mind and body? Here’s a few documentaries and books to help understanding how to stay away from bad stuff…

For the first time ever in human history, our children are growing up less healthy than we are.  It’s important that we parents keep that in mind at all times, stay well informed. I believe we have a responsibility to spread the word to those who don’t have access or exposure to information that’s often obscured by advertising and commercialism. Future generations deserve a better world where their health will be more important to society than the profits of large corporations.

Preservatives, plastics, pesticides, assorted chemicals in our environment has been  proven to be damaging health in the developed world. It’s all documented in the films and book below.

 Forks over knives – American documentary  (2011) directed by American independent filmmaker Lee Fulkerson that advocates a low-fat whole-food, plant-based diet as a means of combating a number of diseases. That movie can change your life!

– The Corporation – This film likens corporations – defined as “legal persons” – to pathological individuals, and helps explain how and why the human factor weights little in large corporations’ interests, which are powerfully enforced by industrial lobbies.


– Food, Inc – How the industrial food chain works. If you were hungry before seeing the movie, this film might just spoil your appetite… For industrial meat, at any rate.

Think Global Act Rural

– Solutions Locales Pour Desordre Global (Think Global, Act Rural) – There are local and small scale solutions to looming ecological disaster, and we can all be part of it; that’s the message to draw from this otherwise rather depressing movie. Silver lining to dark clouds? Book and movie.

– Nos Enfants Nous Accuseront (Our children will accuse us) – How a small town in the South of France organizes its resistance to the problems caused by conventional agriculture. Book and movie.

Our Daily Poison

– Notre Poison Quotidien – This documentary based on a thorough independent inquiry shows how little we still know about the effects of the chemical cocktail we are exposed to in our everyday life. Book and movie.

– La Republique de la Malbouffe – Did you know that only 20% of the restaurants in Paris cook from raw ingredients? The rest is all industrial/prepared food. Shocking, no?

There are many others in the genre: Le Mystere de la Disparition des Abeilles (on Bee Colony Collapse Disorder), Darwin’s Nightmare (massive perch industrial fishing in Africa), The End of the Line (fisheries in peril), Le Monde Selon Monsanto (a one-sided world!).
