From Dr. Mark Hyman -
The new movie, FED Up, is out May 9th, finally tells the truth about food and childhood obesity. It is the movie we have been waiting for. It will change how we think and act forever about this problem. It is a powerful indictment of how the food industry hooks us on addicted processed foods laden with hidden sugars. It is story told through the eyes of four obese children, through the insights of leaders in the food movement including Michael Pollan, Mark Bittman, David Ludwig, Harvey Karp, David Kessler, Gary Taubes, Robert Lustig, President Bill Clinton and me! And through a scathing history of how the food industry has influenced policy, marketing and behavior. Watch the trailer below if you haven’t seen it.
The movie is coming out not a day to soon. This week a new study came out showing a 30 percent increase in type 2 diabetes in children since 2001. This is completely preventable, and it is criminal. Now one in four teenagers has pre-diabetes or type 2 diabetes and one in 10 kids has a fatty liver and many have cirrhosis from drinking soda and eating sugar. When I was in medical school in the 1980’s there was not a single case of type 2 diabetes in a child. We called it adult onset diabetes then.

This is the movie the food industry doesn’t want you to see. FED UP blows the lid off everything we thought we knew about food and weight loss, revealing a 30-year campaign by the food industry, aided by the U.S. government, to mislead and confuse the American public, resulting in one of the largest health epidemics in history. From Katie Couric, Laurie David (Oscar winning producer of AN INCONVENIENT TRUTH) and director Stephanie Soechtig with Mark Hyman MD – FED UP will change the way you eat forever.
