Have you seen the documentary Food Matters?

I discovered the documentary Food Matters through research and it unveils the problems with modern day medicine and reinforces the important relationship between nutrition and disease. I found this film inspiring and it got me to question myself, question what a healthy diet should look like, question medical research that I read and question my experiences with doctors. I don't know if that's enough to motivate you to watch this film, but here's the trailer and a few compelling quotes that really got me thinking.

Less than 6% of the graduating physicians in the USA receive any formal training in nutrition

"26% of patients who are discharged from hospital are more malnourished than when they went in. The reason they go in, in 80-90% of cases, is related to their poor state of nutrition."
Ian Brighthope, Prof., M.D., M.B.B.S., D.Ag.Sci

"You cannot heal can't heal one disease and keep two others. It's impossible. When the body heals, it heals everything"
Charlotte Gerson, Founder of the Gerson Institute

"In fact about half of all deaths are of cardiovascular disease and in half of those deaths, the first symptom is death"
Jerome Burne, Medical Health Journalist

"By restricting cancer research and therapy to basically drug, surgery, radiation approaches, and not consider nutrition seriously, we've done a terrible disservice to all these people"
Andrew W Saul, Ph.D, Therapeutic Nutrition Specialist and Author

It is illegal in most countries around the world to treat cancer patients with nutritional therapy

"The perfect drug from the point of view of a drug company is one, first of all, that doesn't cure people because people need to take the drug for a long period of time in order for it to be profitable."
Jerome Burne, Medical Health Journalist

"Short term [medication], lifesaving, fine. I abhor having patients on any long term medication and there is almost no medication in the world that you can't get patients off of."
Dr. Dan Rogers, Medical Doctor and Naturopath

"If all you do is treat symptoms, you are never going to cure the disease"
Dr. Dan Rogers, Medical Doctor and Naturopath
