FMTV - Sugar Blues

Sugar Blues

Runtime: 79m 23s | Release date: 2015

Sugar can kill! The director, Andrea, is diagnosed with gestational diabetes. She must avoid any form of refined sugar. That soon proves impossible, though, because she finds sugar everywhere and in everything. Why is sugar so ubiquitous?

Fear for her unborn baby changes the eating habits in Andrea's family and motivates her investigation of the sugar industry. Confronting doctors and scientists, Andrea explores the influence of sugar on human physical and mental functions. With the obsession of a detective, she identifies the ties between multinational corporations, politicians and health care. The quest begins at Andrea's kitchen table and continues worldwide for over nearly five years.

But her family needs a mum at home, especially her youngest son. Could sugar really be the cause of his health problems?

A tragicomic, vibrant and emotional story that is informative and inspiring... A film that will set you free from the Sugar Blues!

Thank you for the movie. It resonates with my values. I am trying to raise a sugar free child in a world that puts sugar even in the salt (really : my husband bought salt with spices and inside was sugar also...). I am still looking for a peaceful way to do it and not to want to scream every time he gets unhealthy sweets....and this happens more often than I would want to... I really want to help our r world to become sugar free.

Thank you so much, Iris, for the links. I will definitely check them out and use the tips. I found out that my child likes to check, together, online, the recipes that are on FMTV. He chose a tea for himself (and to my surprise he drank it! It was with a lot of herbs, so I was skeptical if he will like it). We also tried a chocolate cake that just tastes delicious!!! Thank you so much! I am happy to have discovered you and to be a member:).

Straight, plain, and relative to every family today. It's plain to see if you think about it for a while, apply some common sense, it's true, all true.
Now the work begins, I gave up smoking, drinking and meat, so sugar and dairy are next.👍
