Take a sneak peek at the upcoming documentary, "Carb-Loaded - A Culture Dying To Eat", one of the biggest health disasters in modern history.
Many experts on health and diet were interviewed, including Gary Taubes, professor Tim Noakes, Dr. David Katz and others.
Lathe Poland, one of the producers, was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes in 2010. He always thought of himself as a healthy eater. He rarely ate sweets, never drank soda and had no family history of diabetes.
So why would a seemingly healthy thirty-something like Lathe get this disease?
The misconception he had, like many people, was that diabetes is either hereditary and it’s not your fault, or you eat junk food like it’s going out of style and you end up diabetic.
Is our lifestyle, culture or food system causing the sky-rocketing increase in diabetes and obesity? More importantly, can it be reversed?
These are the questions that are answered in the film.
