Simply Raw: Reversing Diabetes In 30 Days (DVD)


Picture: C     Sound: C+     Extras: C-     Main Program: C+



When people, especially experts, make a health claim against an epidemic, you have to be suspicious.  DVD makes this easier and one of the worst health problems is diabetes, which is rising for reasons no one seems to know.  Is it the super-sized helpings, the corn syrup, Monsanto’s genetic engineering of food or other illegal tampering with something while the U.S. Government looks the other way?  Obesity is on the rise along with this and diabetes has no known cure.  Simply Raw: Reversing Diabetes In 30 Days claims it can be reversed.  Can it?


Well, any time “guru” Anthony Robbins surfaces, it can only spell trouble because I never trusted him and he is one of the “experts” recommending this program.  That is a bad sign.  However, the actual program is “simply” having the high blood sugar persons eat raw, uncooked fruits and vegetables in a clinical environment so they supposedly do not have to take insulin or as much of it.  Sounds too simple, but even if it did not totally work, we guess it couldn’t hurt.


The program itself lands up being like a bad Reality TV show with less of a condescending attitude and (wow?) any hatred or distain for its “willing” participants.  I was hoping that everyone involved would do well and it was great to see people in trouble wanting to help themselves.  The science here warrants more investigation than a critic like yours truly could come up with, but it is worth looking into for those dealing with the diabetic nightmare.


The anamorphically enhanced 1.78 X 1 image is surprisingly soft and has its share of aliasing errors to boot, but color is not bad.  The Dolby Digital 2.0 sound is somewhat stereo, but location sound can vary.  The only extra is an introductory piece.
