Dr. David Kessler, a former Food and Drug Administration (FDA) commissioner, calls it “one of the greatest public health epidemics of our time.” Michael Pollan says the government is “subsidizing” that epidemic. Mark Bittman compares it to the behavior of tobacco companies 30 years ago. They’re all referring to the obesity crisis of America and the role junk food companies play, which is highlighted in a documentary called, “Fed Up.”

Produced and narrated by Katie Couric, “Fed Up” takes aim at the junk food industry and that controversial white stuff: sugar. Pollan and Bittman are featured in the trailer, as well as former President and current vegan, Bill Clinton, and a slew of other experts on the subject. They are all making the argument that the obesity crisis in America has been brought on by greedy junk food companies and fast food restaurants and the film features jaw-dropping interviews and statistics that will certainly have you feeling fed up, too.

“Fed Up” is being called the film the food industry doesn’t want you to see, and it’s coming to theaters on May 9th. Until then, the filmmakers encourage everyone to get involved and have posted some helpful links under the Take Action tab of their website.

Check out the trailer below for a taste of what’s to come. This film may be changing the way you eat forever.
