Top 5 Documentaries on Food and Health

While the scientific evidence linking the impact of food over health may be overwhelming, it’s presence, until recent years, has been largely hidden from, not just public view, but from that of the health practitioners on whom we have always relied for health guidance.  And to say the price we’ve paid for that lack of awareness is exhorbitant would be an understatement.

Thankfully, a number of determined and unflappable practitioners in research as well as in medicine, have soldiered on.  They did so despite considerable opposition from both industry and, in more recent years, government as funding for oversight of our protective agencies has waned.  We all owe a great debt of gratitude to these men and women.

But in recent years, the curtain is being lifted, and information is finally coming to light from many directions.  So, whether you are an avid reader, or you prefer to listen or watch, let me introduce you to some of the resources I’ve found, not just the most interesting, but also the most credible, fact-based resources to help you on your own journey of discovery about food and its impact on health.
