Origins - One day left

This movie, which is an hour and forty minutes, is free to view via the Origin's home page, (I have also embedded it below) for about another day, after that you will need to purchase it. I haven't seen this yet, but a few people have recommended it during the past week.

The quick description for what this movie is about - "Four years, 19 countries, and 24 experts in anthropology, medicine, ecology, and health have exposed the roots of our DNA and how to prevent the modern world from making you sick."

One comment from the official origins page, I quote below,

"This is an absolutely breathtaking, beautiful, poignant and relevant movie about what's really going on in our world today and how it's affecting our food supply and health.
I wish I would have been able to watch this years ago...maybe this knowledge would have prevented me from getting cancer. I hope it prevents someone else from going through a health challenge like I did. Do yourself a favor and share this movie with everyone you know. I really believe what we're witnessing on the planet today is a warning...and it's not too late to do something about it.
Outstanding job, Pedram! I'm really glad I've gotten to know you better and watch you on this journey." - Mike Koenigs

“The great outdoors gives me energy – the earth and nature inspires me in my work and in my life! Respect for all is my only rule! People need to understand that they are actually a part of nature and my dream is for my work to bridge the divide that civilization and technology have created”

The message in the film – Origins – kept me inspired throughout the entire project. I am so happy and privileged to have been able to make this film with Pedram and I believe it carries a message that all of us need to understand and live towards!" - From the Origins homepage

This new documentary talking about how our current track of evolution of humanity is becoming parasitic to our Earth, instead of working along with (a symbiotic relationship) the Earth, nature, our bodies, and the environment. I liked that it didn't point fingers as to who's fault it is. They didn't blame the Republicans, the Muslims, China, or anyone else. Just that our current track is unsustainable. Right now 1 in 8 women cannot carry a baby to viability. Soon it will be 1 in 4, and soon after 1 in 2. Sound scary? Why is everyone sick, tired, and fat? There are many factors involved and this went into those factors. This points out where we went wrong and how we can get back on a track of sustainability. A very well-done documentary. I hope people are listening. :)
