fed up

If you haven’t yet heard of the film “Fed Up,” most likely you will soon. Produced by Katie Couric and Laurie David (“An Inconvenient Truth”), the film looks at our out-of-control obesity crisis spurred by our sugar dependency. “The government is subsidizing the obesity epidemic,” author Michael Pollan says in the film. Ain’t that the truth. It’s a must-see, particularly if you have children. Opens in select theaters nationwide Friday, May 9th.
