"Fed Up" (2014)
What it's about: An investigation into the American food industry and a first-hand look at how processed foods — particularly sugar — contribute to deadly diseases like obesity.
Why you should see it: "Obesity is typically thought of as a matter of will power. It's something you avoid by willfully eating well and staving off through exercise. Fed Up argues that big corporations, via intense lobbying, have convinced the federal government to put sugar into everything ... Kids don't have a chance even if they wanted to take action." —Chris Weller, senior innovation reporter. [Click to watch]
