Miami-Based Filmmakers to Produce Documentary to Help Spread Awareness of the Life-Threatening yet Profitable Practices of the Medical, Beauty and Food Industries
December 7, 2012 (Newswire.com) - On the heels of Prop. 37 being denied in California, COS Productions, a Miami-based production company takes on the medical, beauty and food industries in a new documentary, "Incurable Diseases" Is It a Business? The film challenges what many believe to be deceitful measures practiced by these industries solely for the benefit of corporate shareholders, rather than for the optimal health and wellbeing of society.
"Industry shareholders act as puppeteers, manipulating these industries in order to pad their own pockets and fulfill their own agenda," said Carla SÃ¡nchez, chief executive officer and creative director of COS Productions and director of the documentary. "Sadly, the state of our nation's health is a lucrative business opportunity, they put profits over people, turn a blind eye to regulation and ultimately cause diseases and other health problems. Then, they tell society the only way back to good health is through costly drugs and surgery, while shunning natural, alternative treatments".
"Incurable Diseases" Is it a Business? will compare costly, FDA-approved and sometimes extreme medical procedures used to treat diseases to curative alternative treatments available for a fraction of the cost. The documentary will also shed light on the controversy surrounding genetically modified organisms (GMOs) and how genetically modified food has been shown to cause immune dysfunction, organ damage and reproductive problems, yet is used widely in food products without proper labeling. There will also be an intense focus on the failure of California's Prop. 37, which would have required proper labeling of genetically modified food. The link between the unregulated beauty industry and deadly diseases will also be thoroughly investigated.
One of the featured stories followed in the documentary is that of Kerri Rivera, founder of Autism02, a DAN! based non-profit autism clinic in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico and mother of a recovering autistic child. Rivera caused hullabaloo when she presented at The Autism One conference in May of this year and endorsed MMS (Miracle Mineral Solution), a controversial sodium chlorite solution, as an autism cure. Rivera claims that she recovered 69 kids suffering from autism in 24 months using MMS, while the FDA harshly warns that MMS, "a form of industrial bleach," is a serious threat to health. Rivera will speak to her experiences with the Miracle Mineral Solution and share why she believes the backlash is only spouted by those who have a stake in the profitable medical and pharmaceutical industries.
Some of the experts featured in the documentary include Pamm Larry, initial instigator for the California Prop. 37 to Label GMOs, Jim Humble, creator of MMS Protocols and Stacy Malkan, co-founder of the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics.
Additionally, SÃ¡nchez will pursue an investigation with representatives from the FDA, USDA and other organizations. A video teaser is currently available on YouTube.
"These organizations are supposed to protect society, rather than act as a marketing agent for pharmaceutical, medical, beauty and food industries," said Sanchez. "We're determined to get answers from them."
"Incurable Diseases" Is it a Business? is currently in production. COS Productions has recently launched a crowdfunding campaign to help cover costs needed to complete the project. Interested individuals can donate from $5 to $5,000, with rewards including stickers, t-shirts, movie tickets and associate producer credits.
"We hope that everyone who believes there is a way to heal ourselves with alternative medicine will be inspired to support our project" said SÃ¡nchez. "We need an educated society to enforce better-regulated industries, more research and regulation of genetically modified organisms, and more access to alternative medicine over costly pharmaceutical and surgical options. Our goal is that this film will inspire a nation to take back control of our society's health and wellness."
