"Forks Over Knives," in part, looks at T. Colin Campbell's research findings, which he published in his best-selling book, "The China Study." Campbell's research found that animal protein -- the kind people consume when they consume animals or their secretions -- can trigger cancer.
The title of the documentary refers to how simply changing the way we eat can save us from having to undergo drastic surgery.
The feature film Forks Over Knives examines the profound claim that most, if not all, of the degenerative diseases that afflict us can be controlled, or even reversed, by rejecting our present menu of animal-based and processed foods.
I'm not sure when this film will be released. The trailer says this summer, but the Web site says this fall. Whichever it is, you can bet I'll be there.
"PLANEAT" not only looks at the role an animal-based diet plays on our health, but also how it affects the environment.
‘PLANEAT’ is a provocative challenge to our love of meat and dairy. Tracking the work of a group of scientists, doctors and environmentalists, the film forces us to confront the evidence that a heavily animal-based diet is bad for our health, the environment and the future of the planet.
The movie is making its way through film festivals. No release date has been set.
These two films give me such hope!
Regardless how one feels about animals, people need to be told how what they're eating is affecting them. Although I have a family history of breast cancer, no doctor had ever told me that eating meat could affect my chances of getting it.
It's time people's eyes were opened to the medical realities of an animal-based diet.
