Phase 2 of Health Canada's project to update the Canada Food Guide has begun. Did you even know there was a Phase 1 last fall? I remember filling that one out and only know about this one because of a health-related newsletter I get in my inbox. Only 20,000 Canadians participated in the last survey. How many people live in Canada? No doubt the lack of participation is the same thing that plagues any issue that requires voting (like government elections) and that's apathy; an unfortunate side-effect of democracy.

This is a no-frills documentary that interviews people who's medical conditions are believed to be directly related to the chemicals included in our everyday products, many of which are unregulated yet ever-present in our lives. “The Human Experiment” starts out by sketching in the range of these phenomena via interviews with people who’ve had medical problems that are thought to be chemically related and doctors who’ve been studying them. The narrative soon enough turns to the economic and political forces behind the overall situation. Source: The Human Experiment Movie Review (2015) | Roger Ebert
