Are You Hungry For Change?

2012/03/20

Yesterday, I asked the question: what if our dysfunctional relationship to food is connected to the dysfunctional relationship we have with our ecosystem? Can we really properly care for our planet if we aren’t able to care for our own bodies?  If we are making choices that contaminant our bodies, and make them less and less healthy, why would we make good choices about caring for the body of mother earth? What if, instead, we nourished our cells and “minded our mitochondria” with the food we eat? Could this be a step towards healing our planet?

Hungry For Change is a new documentary from the creators of Food Matters.  It is set to be released tomorrow, and will be available for viewing for free on-line for those who register on the Hungry for Change website. The movie asks the question, Could the foods we are eating actually be keeping us stuck in the diet trap? and is described as exposing:

shocking secrets the diet, weight loss and food industry don’t want you to know about. Deceptive strategies designed to keep you craving more and more. 

Here are some clips that are available on youtube:

    Funnily enough, the issue of obesity was a main topic on the BBC’s Breakfast TV this morning. It is acknowledged that is a major cost burden on the state (thanks to the existence of the NHS). Then of course there is also the issue raised over the inefficiency of growing crops to feed to cattle to produce meat… It would be much more efficient for us all to become vegetarians.

    None of this mattered 300 years ago but with 7 billion humans set to increase their numbers a further 50% by the end of the Century (overshoot and collapse notwithstanding), all this is yet more evidence for the validity of limits to growth arguments.
