IS SUGAR THE NEW TOBACCO?
How did the food industry get us to stop asking the question: is sugar toxic? It all starts with a secret PR campaign dating back to the 1970s. For forty years, Big Sugar deflected all threats to its multi-billion dollar empire, while sweetening the world’s food supply. As obesity, diabetes, and heart disease rates skyrocket, doctors are now treating the first generation of children suffering from fatty liver disease. The sugar industry is once again under siege. They dodged the bullet once. Will they do it again?
Pulling back the curtain on the tactics of an industry once again under attack, Sugar Coated provides a chilling feeling of déjà vu. Today the industry is back sweetening the message. But this time, history comes knocking.
The feature length version of Sugar Coated is now streaming on Netflix and the TV hour on the TVO website. You can also visit the interactive website sugarcoateddoc.com and download the onesweetapp app at iTunes.
