Three LC Movies You Should Watch

Fat Head Kids: Stuff About Diet and Health I Wish I Knew when I was Your Age by Tom Naughton.

Written for older kids, but has information that will probably be new to a lot of adults. It uses a spaceship as a metaphor for the human body and programming as a metaphor for personal metabolism. Drs. William Davis, Richard Feinman, Ann Childers, John Briffa, Michael Eades, Andreas Eenfeldt, Michael Fox, Dwight Lundell, Robert Lustig and Eric Westman provide interviews through the movie.

Love Paleo. This movie was released in 2015, but I hadn't heard about it until recently. Several people--including Dr. John Briffa, discuss the major health improvements they've seen on a paleo diet and why it works. 

What's with Wheat? Regular readers already know that wheat in its current form is genetically very different from what it was a few decades ago. What they might not know is that monocrop agriculture  isn't good for the environment, that wheat has glyphosate (Roundup, an herbicide) in it (I checked and it's true), that celiac disease can affect the brain, and wheat can, in some people, lead to autoimmune disease. Interviews with Dr. David Perlmutter, Natasha Campbell-McBride, Joel Salatin, Terry Wahls (of reversing MS fame) and Sally Fallon Morell of the Weston A. Price Foundation.
