Where did you watch this movie?

This provocative documentary provides a critical probe into the serious issue of obesity in the US, presenting evidence that the large quantities of sugar in processed foods are an overlooked root of the problem. With great clarity, this incisive documentary shows how the first dietary guidelines issued by the U.S. government, 30 years ago overlooked the role of dietary sugar in increasing risks of obesity, diabetes, and associated ill-health outcomes, particularly in children. Since these guidelines effectively condoned unlimited addition of sugar to foods consumed by children, sugar consumption has greatly increased, obesity has skyrocketed, and generations of children have grown up far fatter than their parents. These children face impaired health and shorter lifespans as a result. As the relationship between the high-sugar diet and poor health has emerged, entrenched sugar industry interests with almost unlimited financial lobbying resources have beaten back attempts by parents, schools, states, and in Congress to provide a healthier diet for children.
