The idea for the film was conceived by Pete Evans, a famous chef in Australia and photographed beatifully by Rob Tate with a compelling story to tell. The documentary is about food, and particularly how the Western diet has sabotaged the health of so many people. Some of those featured include Aboriginal peoples who 70 years ago were slender, fit and healthy (photos provided) but who have since succumbed to diseases of civilization, notably obesity and type 2 diabetes. In "The Magic Pill" their story is documented and shown cinematically over a period of time as they are provided low carbohydrate ketogenic foods and discuss on camera how they feel on this new diet. Other people are also featured, including a family with an autistic son, who's improvement on a ketogenic diet is also documented.
While cancer is not the focus of the film, the filmmakers interviewed Gene to discuss cancer and ketogenic diets. The spot is only about 2 minutes long, and while not the highlight of the film, you may be interested to watch.
