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.
