Pesticides, Additives, Food Colouring And Packaging. A topic concerning each and every one of us that looks into what we eat.
Is there a link between the contamination of the food chain by chemical substances and the epidemic of chronic diseases the World Health Organisation (WHO) is observing all over the world?
This is an investigative documentary that sets out to answer this question and reviews many scientific studies that have been largely ignored: the current epidemic of cancers, neurological diseases and auto-immune disorders is closely linked to our exposure to the some 100,000 chemical molecules that have invaded our food and our environment.
The enquiry highlights not only the harsh reality of the effects these chemicals are having on us, but also the food industry's and political decision-makers' lies and lack of transparency.
