PlantPure Nation Trailer


"PlantPure Nation tells the story of three people on a quest to spread the message of one of the most important health breakthroughs of all time.  After nutritional scientist and author Dr. T. Colin Campbell speaks to the Kentucky legislature, his oldest son Nelson works with Kentucky State Representative Tom Riner to propose a pilot program documenting the health benefits of a plant-based diet.  Through this well intentioned effort, they inadvertently set in motion a series of events that expose powerful forces opposed to the diet. After industry lobbyists kill the pilot program, Nelson decides to try his own grassroots approach in his hometown of Mebane, North Carolina, before circling back to Kentucky for a dramatic ending.  
 A growing number of celebrities, athletes, TV hosts, and nutrition experts have promoted the plant-based diet in the past few years, and tens of thousands of people have documented their personal success stories.  But as more doctors and public officials become aware of the healing power of plant-based nutrition the question arises: Why don’t they share the information with the public?  Tragically, there have been few official medical or state-sponsored efforts in the nation to support the life sustaining benefits of a whole foods plant-based diet.
PlantPure Nation was filmed across the USA and includes world-renowned experts, doctors and authors. The Production team includes Director Nelson Campbell, and Producer John Corry & Writer Lee Fulkerson from the acclaimed documentary film Forks Over Knives."

This documentary is called Det vita guldet in Swedish, Das System Milch in German and The Milk System in English. This German and Italian movie is from 2017. It is directed by Andreas Pichler and there are actually two versions of it! One 91 minutes long and one 52 minutes. 

It has recently been seen in Swedish television.*(se längre ner)

Imdb page here.

Info below from the Magnetfilm Youtube channel.
"There's one thing milk stands for - health. It's seen as natural and nutrient-rich. Which is exactly what makes it so attractive for the market. But is it really that healthy? We set out to take a critical look at the milk system. Along the way we'll meet farmers, dairy owners, politicans, lobbyistes, NGOs, scientiest. 
Each has their own views on the value and consequences of an industry with world-wide impact. Whether in Europe, Asia or Africa, milk is the allegorical model of streamlined-for-growth global food production and its consequences. The film uncovers surprising truths behind the system. Who profits at whose cost? Does the system have a future and are there alternatives? A journey across continents that deals with preconceptions and brings solutions to light."

Köttlobbyn Trailer


Så här står det på SVT Plays sida


"Varför är julskinkan skär? Varför är vi så säkra på att den är nyttig? Vad står det egentligen på innehållsförteckningen? Undersökande journalisten Sandrine Rigaud granskar den mäktiga köttindustrin vars lobby inte drar sig för att smutskasta forskare och politiker som hotar dess intressen. Ju mer pengar som står på spel, desto brutalare är metoderna. Vad får det för konsekvenser? Och kan vi verkligen lita på att maten vi äter är säker?"

The Meat Lobby: Big Business Against Health?

The Meat Lobby: Big Business Against Health? is a French documentary that first was released in France in 2016. 

It has been seen on Swedish television (Swedish title: Köttlobbyn)  and if you live in Sweden you can still watch it on SVT Play (the Swedish public service streaming site) for a few days longer. 

If you live outside Sweden you can rent or buy it via Vimeo.

Quote from Vimeos site:

"Why is ham pink? Why do we believe that it is good for our children? Why are product labels beyond understanding? From Brittany to Denmark, through California and Wisconsin, director Sandrine Rigaud conducts a year-long investigation, trying to understand how these industrial giants are capable of stalling and directing policy decisions that directly affect public health.
This investigative documentary reveals the measures the industry is taking to prevent this from happening. This conflict is taking place across the world, and no tactics seem too extreme. The industry targets politicians and researchers alike, going so far as to bribe scientists in an effort to protect their interests.When money is not a good enough incentive, they adopt a more brutal approach.
Manipulated and discredited, many researchers have been made victims of this industry. Their crime: conducting studies that underline the health risks of a particular product for the consumer.
This film reveals the truths behind the unspoken ingredients that these food giants are determined to keep using."

The Meat Lobby: Big business against health? Trailer



I've seen The Meat Lobby and I found it to be a very interesting and upsetting documentary. To me it was upsetting because of the attempts from the meat lobby/the meat industry to undermine research about health effects of animal meat based products.

Maybe it is not that strange because the meat industry has a lot of power, but I do find it upsetting and real threat to democracy.

What else do people from the meat industry do to silence criticism and avert problems headed their way? I mean they do kill animals to make money, and let people eat the meat products that are harmful for peoples health. I think that these aspects should be considered when answering questions like the one I just asked.
