As a team we recently watched the movie Bought and wanted to share our thoughts on it with you.  If you’d like to hear/see more about it go to this link: Bought Movie: Free Viewing and Movie Trailer

Courtney:
I think my biggest take away from the movie “Bought” is that our country needs to make a change. I feel like Americans, myself included, pride ourselves in being part of a nation that we consider to be ahead of the crowd. Unfortunately when it comes to health, we are way behind. We spend more on health “care” and medications than any other country in the world and yet we are the one of the sickest developed nations. A lot can be assumed about how and why we have arrived at this point but what is certain is that it is time for a change. Until that change comes, we need to do the best we can to take the best care possible of ourselves and our families. We cannot depend any group or agency to have our best interests in mind. We need to educate ourselves as much as possible and use that information to make changes in our own households and communities. I encourage each of you to take a step today, this week, this year, to start making a change in your own life and see where it takes you.

Carole:
We watched the movie “Bought” as a staff recently. I found it thought provoking and plan to research more closely the effects of vaccines on our children.

The relationship between our food suppliers, the medical establishment and pharmaceutical industry is very suspect, based on the information this movie presents. I came away with the understanding that it is in a person’s best interest to be well informed on these issues and not just take what your medical doctor prescribes or recommends at face value. I’ve also learned that it is very important to read labels and know what is in the foods we purchase.

Tiffany:
The movie “Bought” has some great information to learn from. The movie itself may not fully answer all of your questions at hand, and it may raise some more pressing questions. When watching this movie it is important to remember the choices we have made were in our best interest at the time.

I feel a bit of empowerment from the film. Even though I am left with questions running through my head about my personal life choices, I feel more ready to take on a life of better health with better awareness of what is happening in the world today.

Of course I will always want to have a deeper understanding of why our ‘health care’ and food supply is run the way it is, but now I see I am not alone in the fight.
