Movies

We’ve started listing some great movies – please email us with your recommendations for Cancer Prevention, thought-provoking movies!

www.StinkMovie.com
“Stink!” opens with a foul smell and a pair of kids pajamas. And a single father trying to find out what that smell could possibly be. But instead of getting a straight answer, director Jon Whelan stumbles on an even bigger issue in America, which is that some products on our store shelves are not safe — by design. The movie takes you on a journey from the retailer to the laboratory, through corporate boardrooms, down back alleys, and into the halls of Congress — exposing the darkest secrets of the chemical industry. You won’t like what you smell.

Precautionary Principle: the Nicole Bruinsma Story
The inspiring story of Dr. Nicole Bruinsma, a family physician, wife and mother, who campaigned against the cosmetic use of pesticides in her community, her province and her country as she waged her own personal war with breast cancer.

Erin Brockovich
Universal Studios made a film titled, “Erin Brockovich”, which stars Julia Roberts, who won an Academy Award®. Is the movie true and accurate? YES, the movie was true and probably 98% accurate. They took very few creative licenses. – See more here.

Genetic Roulette. The Gamble of our Lives
Jeffrey M. Smith, author of the world’s bestselling book on GMOs, Seeds of Deception, is a leading consumer advocate promoting healthier non-GMO choices. Evidence points to genetically engineered foods as a major contributor to rising disease rates in the US population, especially among children. Monsanto’s strong arm tactics, the FDA’s fraudulent policies, and how the USDA ignores a growing health emergency are also laid bare.

Toxic Hot Seat
Chemical flame retardants are everywhere. Our furniture. Our homes. Our bodies. But do they work as promised? And are they making us sick? Set against the backdrop of the award-winning 2012 Chicago Tribune investigative series “Playing With Fire,” TOXIC HOT SEAT threads together an intricate story of manipulation that details how Big Tobacco skillfully convinced fire safety officials to back a standard that, in effect, requires all furniture to be filled with toxic flame retardants. Through the personal stories of a cancer-surviving firefighter, a renowned chemist whose work helped remove fire retardants from kid’s pajamas in the 1970s, and a brave and determined young Maine legislator and mom, TOXIC HOT SEAT reveals the courage of brave citizens willing to fight for the truth against a shadowy nexus of money and politics.

The Human Experiment
The Human Experiment lifts the veil on the shocking reality that thousands of untested chemicals are in our everyday products, our homes and inside of us. Simultaneously, the prevalence of many diseases continues to rise. From Oscar® winner Sean Penn and Emmy® winning journalists Dana Nachman and Don Hardy, The Human Experiment tells the personal stories of people who believe their lives have been affected by chemicals and takes viewers to the front lines as activists go head-to-head with the powerful and well-funded chemical industry. These activists bring to light a corrupt system that’s been hidden from consumers… until now.

Unacceptable Levels
Unacceptable Levels examines the results of the chemical revolution of the 1940s through the eyes of affable filmmaker Ed Brown, a father seeking to understand the world in which he and his wife are raising their children. The film opens the door to conversations about the chemical burden our bodies carry so that we can make informed decisions now and in the future. The film poses challenges to our companies, our government, and our society to do something about a nearly-unseen threat with the inspired knowledge that small changes can generate a massive impact.

Toxic Baby
Toxic Baby reveals the shocking truth of one of the greatest environmental issues we face today: our children’s exposure to thousands of chemicals in the day to day lives and the mounting concern within the scientific community about the implications of the exposure on their health and development.
