Through Rainmatter, we have been trying to figure out how we can support teams that are helping people make healthy choices.
And since some of us are actively tracking the health space, we will share some of the good documentaries, movies, podcasts on health on this thread. Please do add to this thread and we will give it a watch
Starting off with the documentary on Netflix called, What the Health.
This documentary explaining how the American diet is way too high in animal products, leading to diabetes, heart disease, and cancer. Also, goes on to describe how the government and non-profit health organizations aren’t trying to get people to change food habits, but instead promote these products because the meat companies provide funding to the government and sponsorship dollars to the health organizations. Conflict of interest much?
The pharmaceutical companies view these chronic illnesses as cash cows, so despite research showing how diet and lifestyle can reduce, prevent, or even reverse diseases, they don’t educate consumers. Instead, they make treatments and drugs that the patient has to take for the rest of their lives.
