Explore the Predatory Practices of the Processed Food Industry


Dr. Robert Lustig, one of the world’s leading authorities on nutrition and health and a featured voice in our acclaimed 2015 release Sugar Coated, is out with a blistering new book that lays bare the predatory practices of the processed food industry.

In Metabolical: The Lure and Lies of Processed Food, Nutrition, and Modern Medicine¹, Lustig offers a breakthrough account of how Big Food has methodically poisoned the American people and the planet, created an epidemic of chronic illness and environmental destruction, and concealed it all by buying off federal regulators and waging a multibillion-dollar propaganda war to convince the world that their toxic products are healthy and safe.

As author and food activist Raj Patel, who’s featured in our film Feeding Frenzy, said of the book, “Robert Lustig has treated the casualties, and now he’s going after the perpetrators.”

If you’re looking to introduce your students to the work of Lustig, Patel, and other leading figures in the movement to counter industry propaganda and reform the global food system, be sure to watch the clip above and check out the films below. All of these films — along with the rest of the titles in our catalog — are currently 20% off as part of our annual Spring sale.
