Last night, we watched Forks Over KnivesI recommend it with whole heart and no reservations.

Following the path of scientists who have documented the direct correlation between diet and disease, it’s a film that changes lives.

It’s a film that is saving  lives.

Most, if not all, of the degenerative diseases that afflict us can be controlled, or even reversed, by rejecting animal-based and processed foods.

Something that the Meat and Dairy industries would prefer us not to know.

A plant-based diet is far more healthful than one that emphasizes animal products:

* Plants contain antioxidants, phytonutrients, vitamins, minerals, fiber, and water, all of which are health-promoting.

* Meat has minimal nutrients and also contains health-damaging saturated fat, cholesterol, steroids, hormones, high levels of pesticides, excess protein and other undesirables.

The film documents positive health changes in firefighters, cancer patients, over-medicated individuals with no energy, heart attack survivors.

Adopting a whole foods plants based diet got them off their meds, extended their lifetimes, and improved the quality of their lives.

They want you to see this film.  So do I.

When we take responsibility for our health and switch to a whole food plant based diet, the risk of death from diabetes, cardiovascular disease, stroke,  hypertension, and cancer drops dramatically.

It’s that simple.
