Review of The Human Experiment on Weekend Notes by Maria Marshall

Review of The Human Experiment on Weekend Notes by Maria Marshall


Thanks to Maria Marshall for a comprehensive and well written review of Sean Penn's recently screened documentary 'The Human Experiment'.

It is heartwarming for us at Naturally home, to see that by our determination to bring this film to Australian audiences before its time, we are inspiring and awakening individuals to become their own health activists and to switch to using safer products. It is clear from this thoroughly insightful review that Maria has been awakened and inspired herself and recommends that everyone see this film prior to ever going sh... continue reading
