Fed Up

Stephanie Soechtig’s feature documentary “Fed Up” asserts that “Everything we’ve been told about food and exercise for the past 30 years is dead wrong.” It targets sugar as the leading cause of today’s panoply of diet-related diseases afflicting Americans, and talks to a number of experts as well as several people who suffer from obesity. The headline quote of the movie seems to come from former FDA commissioner Dr. David Kessler, who describes the effects of sugar as “One of the great public health epidemics of our time.” Here is the trailer.

The movie is currently in limited release in nineteen cities, opens in many more markets tomorrow, and then continues its roll out over the next few weeks. More information on theaters can be found here. It also has a terrific poster.
