These documentaries and movies have had a huge impact on me, and I hope they will do the same for you.

Earthlings

First, let me caution you that this documentary is not for the faint of heart. It's a shocking film about human dependence on animals, and "Earthlings" will make you rethink the way you live.

Focusing on the suffering of animals for food, fashion, pets, entertainment, and medical research, it's considered one of the definitive animal rights films by organizations across the world. Created over the span of six years, it features shocking footage that major industries don't want you to see.

Food Inc.

Inspired by the books "Fast Food Nation" and "The Omnivore's Dilemma," this documentary explores the way our food makes it to our table. It uncovers the frightening effects the food industry has had on the health of our country, and the unthinkable actions the government has taken to manipulate our sources of food for the benefit of major conglomerates.

Fast Food Nation

In this fictional movie inspired by the book of the same name, Greg Kinnear plays Don Henderson, the executive of a national fast-food chain. As he attempts to discover the source of food contamination, he learns the path beef takes from the slaughterhouse to the fast-food tray. Based on fact and exploring everything from labor issues to health and safety, you may find yourself reconsidering that burger for dinner.

I recommend watching Back to Eden Film, a revolutionary do***entary about organic gardening. The filmmakers have agreed to stream it for free on the film's website: http://www.backtoedenfilm.com

This is a great film that opens your eyes to what fast food is doing to Americans and the negative impact on our society. However, we mustn't forget that many fast food corporations have opened across the world since the 1950s. This has left many at risk of health problems, because of the food they eat on a daily basis. One typically illness effecting Americans is type 2 diabetes. The more we understand it and acknowledge that if we continue to buy junk food, the fast food chain will get richer and richer, while the rest of us will suffer an uphill battle with insulin resistance. The link I have added, gives a good insight how you can develop diabetes and what you need to do to prevent it from happening. http://bit.ly/13Fc7YE
