Now the other two - I saw these on instant Netflix. I've been wanting to see them for awhile now and we just signed up for instant again so I'm on a documentary kick. So we watched "Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead" (http://www.fatsickandnearlydead.com/) and "Forks over Knives" (http://www.forksoverknives.com/). I've always figured that we, as Americans - particularly Americans living in 2012 - are killing ourselves with our foods but after watching these movies - holy hell. I'm not here to preach to anyone about what to eat - just like I don't give a shit if you smoke - you know you're doing wrong by smoking so you don't need me telling you about it. But do yourself a favor - watch these films as well as "Food, Inc." It will open your eyes. Lucas and I are going to try juicing (watch "Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead") not to lose weight but to just feel better - I'm not doing it for 60 days though (watch the movie - you'll know what I'm talking about). And I'm going to really, really, really make an effort to eat less meat, less dairy and less processed food.
I really fear what the US will be like in say 20-30 years when our teens who have been raised on crap food even more so than my generation are middle aged - will their life expectancy drop? Doubt it - we have too damn many drugs out there keeping people alive (remember when there use to be survival of the fittest?). A great deal of our diseases (high cholesterol, diabetes, heart disease, even some cancers) can truly be eliminated or reversed simply by your food intake. I dread what healthcare costs are going to be by then..... oy.
Anyway - let me know if you watch these documentaries! They are definitely worth the time. Enjoy the beautiful weather this week!
