New documentary on food additives

Posted: Updated:

Could everyday items you store in your pantry or fridge contain toxic and addictive ingredients?

The creators of the documentary "Hungry for Change, Your Health is in Your Hands" are out with a film that exposes the food industry for putting addictive and toxic ingredients in everyday foods like bread, pasta sauce, and salad dressings.

The film is garnering a lot of attention because of a grassroots movement happening across the country to educate people about what's in their food.

The authors of "Rich Foods Poor Foods"  Jayson B. Calton, PhD, and Mira Calton, CN say the United States allows major food manufacturers to put chemicals, additives and ingredients in foods that are currently banned overseas.

The Calton's book which helps consumers navigate the grocery chains is in Publix grocery stores across Florida. The grocery giant is known for partnering with health care experts to help consumers make healthy food choices.

"If consumers are educated they can vote every time they go through the checkout line by leaving foods that contain dangerous ingredients on store shelves." said Mira Calton.

Hungry for Change is offering a free online viewing of the 90-minute film through this weekend.
