10 May The Weight Of The Nation: Blame Game or “REAL” Change?
THE WEIGHT OF THE NATION is a presentation of HBO and the IOM, CDC, NIH, and Kaiser Permanente. You can either watch it on HBO or you can click HERE to see the movie online for FREE beginning May 14th at 8:00pm.
While I am hopeful that it will shed light on the health, economic and disparity issues that plague our nation, I am weary about the fact that the experts in the film are closely tied to the government. For this reason I will keep my mouth shut until I see the film for myself. I hope that this isn’t a blame game but rather a shift to eating more “real food“… I’m crossing my fingers on that one. In the meantime, mark your calendars.
Enjoy your weekend, mi gente. Happy Mother’s Day to all the mamas XO.
