Summary
According to the World Health Organization, the incidence of cancer has doubled over the last thirty years. Over this period, the increase in leukemia and brain tumours in children has been around 2% per year. The WHO has observed a similar trend for neurological diseases (Parkinson's and Alzheimer's) and autoimmune disorders. This documentary launches an in-depth investigation into everyday products and the systems charged with regulating them, examining the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) archives. Seeking answers the filmmaker manages to talk her way into secret meetings, and meets with regulators and respected renegade researchers throughout North American and Europe. The film shows that the main cause of the epidemic is environmental: the result of the 100,000 chemical molecules that have invaded our environment, and primarily our food, since the end of the Second World War
