What The Health

We have issues with the pharmaceutical industry.  This is not just from a vegan standpoint but from the point of view of the real definition of 'pharmaceutical' and 'industry'.  Let's look at those definitions shall we?  Pharmaceutical - "relating to medicinal drugs or their preparation, use or sale".  Industry - "the economic activity concerned with the processing of raw materials and manufacture of goods in factories" (Oxford Dictionaries definitions by the way). Economic and sale are the key words here.  There is no reference to healing or making people healthier but you'd think that would be the main aim of such companies if they had our best interests at heart.  However, wake up people; it's all about the profit. Industries are always driven by profit and there is no profit without sick people in this case. So they must be created, and what better way than mis-educating people into believing what is currently happening is normal.  Prevention is better than cure is 'so last year' when it comes to making a quick buck.

There has been evidence out there for years of such a conspiracy, and with vocal advocates for non pharmaceutic cures suffering at the hands of 'authority', it can only make us think that there is indeed something to be 'covered up' and suppressed here.  In terms of just cancer alone, you only have to dip into the realms of such books as 'Cancer - Step Outside the Box' and 'Cancer - Why We're Still Dying to Know the Truth' to think that we should really be asking more questions than are currently being asked.  Both my parents have been touched by cancer so I have done a fair amount of reading up about these issues.

After the educative success of 'Cowspiracy' we were delighted to hear that the makers are following on logically from the environmental impact of processed industrial animal foods, to the same impact from the pharmaceutical industries, and investigating how the two are connected.  What The Health is a ground breaking feature length documentary that follows the journey of intrepid filmmaker Kip Andersen as he uncovers the impact that highly processed industrial animal foods has on our personal health and greater community, and explores why leading health organisations continue to promote the industry despite countless medical studies and research.  

This film has been touted as a 'combination of Cowspiracy meets Forks Over Knives on steroids'.  The fact that they have managed to obtain 117% of their desired Crowd Funding contributions in just 22 hours demonstrates that they are very much on the right track, and following a rising tide of awareness from people who are opening their minds and are prepared to question the 'norm' in search of the real truth.

Just because they have 117% of their desired funding, it doesn't mean they shouldn't be funded more.  Let's make this bigger than Cowspiracy.  If you want to contribute towards their brave voice, just do it.  It's pay day on Monday so we will be making a contribution to add our voice and support to this important documentary.
