Get slimmer by eating chocolate! Scientific studies can make us believe the stupidest things. We are bombarded by all kinds of promises on how to lose weight. Of millions of dieters, only a handful will have long-term success, yet there are countless studies claiming the opposite. The film investigates how the multibillion-dollar weight-loss industry systematically buys scientific research and uses it in its favor. Results based on questionable short-term studies find their way into respected publications and motivate physicians to prescribe such diets to their patients.
This groundbreaking documentary shows just how effectively science is being misused by the industry. The film authors publish their own study, which is so absurd no one should take it seriously. However, soon it becomes clear that the media are picking up on the incredible story of how eating chocolate helps lose weight. It’s only a matter of time till everyone believes that chocolate is the best weight loss accelerator!
