I watched this film fresh off the press today and cannot recommend it highly enough to EVERY American!! A dear friend of mine, who is also in true healthcare, is a friend of Dr. Toni Bark, M.D., the doctor interviewing others in this film, and says without a doubt she is “the best doctor in America.” After seeing this film and what she’s done with it, I would have to say that doesn’t surprise me and I agree. The woman has guts and I applaud her…I have high respect for any medical professional who is willing to stick out their neck, question the system and do what’s right.
I know a lot about our “heath” care and food systems, what’s become of them, and where we are headed as a society if we don’t open our eyes but even I learned new information from this film. This film is an absolute must watch for any mother, caretaker of young or old, anyone really. Please watch the film, share with your friends and family and try to remember to come back and comment to encourage others to do the same…it’s going to take all of us, on a united front, to change the mess we’ve created for ourselves with closed eyes.
INTERESTING FIRST HAND INFO FROM A PHARMACIST REGARDING CANCER TREATMENT:
I had a great conversation the other day with a pharmacist who is on his way out of conventional medicine, heading into holistic practice as he is full aware of the issues in the pharmaceutical industry where profits trump health and wellness. He no longer wants to be a pawn in the profit system and wants to help people truly heal vs allowing the pharmaceutical industry to take advantage of and use them for mass profits.
In casual conversation in sharing with one another how and why we elected to exit the conventional medical model, he shared with me that his first question of the model arose during pharmacy school:
While studying conventional cancer treatments, a “cancer specialist” came to speak as a guest instructor and told the class to not worry about trying to learn the dosing for cancer drug protocols because “no one really knows”. Furthermore, the measure of “success” of a drug by their standards is determined by a 50% reduction in tumor size. It doesn’t matter if you’re dead 6 months later, still a successful treatment outcome! Isn’t that reassuring? Does that make you question the system a bit?
Unacceptable Levels examines the results of the chemical revolution of the 1940s through the eyes of affable filmmaker Ed Brown, a father seeking to understand the world in which he and his wife are raising their children. To create this debut documentary, one man and his camera traveled extensively to find and interview top minds in the fields of science, advocacy, and law. Weaving their testimonies into a compelling narrative, Brown presents us with the story of how the chemical revolution brought us to where we are, and of where, if we’re not vigilant, it may take us.
Over 80,000 chemicals flow through our system of commerce, and many are going straight into our bodies. Even our unborn children are affected. Due to this constant exposure, we have approximately 200 synthetic industrial chemicals interacting with our cells every single day. Until recently, modern science really didn’t understand what that could mean for all of us in the long run, but that is changing.
Globally, disease rates are on the rise. Theories about the causes abound, yet the issues are complex and often muddied by the maneuvering of political and corporate interests. To explore different facets of common chemical exposure, Unacceptable Levels, was made in consultation with experts in multiple fields and is guided by a father on a personal journey as he attempts to bring these issues to light for everyone. Its primary goal? To determine whether we can prevent disease before it strikes us.
Unacceptable Levels opens the door to conversations about the chemical burden our bodies carry so that we can make informed decisions now and in the future. The film poses challenges to our companies, our government, and our society to do something about a nearly-unseen threat with the inspired knowledge that small changes can generate a massive impact.
