Sugar Blues

Runtime: 79m 23s | Release date: 2015

Please be advised, the following footage contains graphic imagery that may be disturbing /upsetting to some viewers.

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!

Featuring:
Andrea Culková

Really informative film. It's so unfortunate more people aren't doing what she's doing. I wonder if she is still crusading for no sugar.

Great film. And we think we are free the bondage of the modern diet, eat wholefoods & nothing in a packet or tin. :-)
