Several days ago I watched this documentary. Sometimes you watch something and it forever changes the way you think and do certain everyday task. For me I am driven to share this movie with as many mothers, fathers, friends and loved ones as I can.
Several key points made perfect sense to me.
Cancers, autism and several other medical conditions have risen dramatically since just the 1970’s. Since I am a product of the 50’s and 60’s, I am just old enough to realize this. For example I have wondered for years, how is it that up until recent years I had never heard of autism.
Why is it that 1 in 8 women (and now men too) today have or will have some form of breast cancer? When science now tells us that less than 14% of all cancers are hereditary.
Why are cancers in CHILDREN up 80% since the 1970’s?
These and other questions make you think about what has changed in our modern society in the last 50 years.
PROGRESS….that is what is changing. All the things we use, live with and eat that make our lives easy, that’s what.
So it makes you wonder…..how can we reverse modernization? And would we want to even if we could. Grassroot efforts seem to want to, but large corporations, government and FDA do not seem so eager. Many of the efforts or lack of I should say, have very similar actions of the cigarette warnings of the 1960’s and 1970’s.
Here is a trailer of the movie. Take a look.
