You might be interested in taking a look at this article/review on our recently completed film for teenagers and families, “All Jacked Up” by Mike Adams at NewsTarget.

An excerpt from the article...

"This is the documentary the food companies wish would go away. It's just the kind of damning information linking junk foods with catastrophic health that Big Food wants to make disappear as quickly as possible. Be warned that you will likely never look at your food the same way again. Even though the film is focused on teenagers, the information applies across the board for people of any age. After viewing this film, you may find yourself instantly changing your eating habits."
