Forks Over Knives
Documentary filmmaker Lee Fulkerson explores the possibility that so-called "diseases of affluence," such as heart disease, can be reversed by simply adjusting our diets to include less processed and animal-based foods. Back in the 1960s, Cornell University nutritional scientist Dr. T. Colin Campbell was working to find a way to feed the citizens of impoverished Third World nations when a trip to the Philippines forever changed the way he thought about food consumption. There, he discovered that the rates of liver cancer among affluent children who subsisted on diets rich in animal-based foods were notably higher than in children consuming plant-based diets. Meanwhile, surgeon Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn, head of the Breast Cancer Task Force at Cleveland Clinic, was also discovering that many of the diseases he was seeing in patients were practically nonexistent in areas of the world where people were primarily consuming plant foods. Several subsequent investigations by the researchers (who would not meet each other until the 1980s), including a groundbreaking study in China by Dr. Campbell, led them to the revelation that a whole-food, plant-based diet could prevent, and even reverse, such degenerative conditions as type 2 diabetes, heart disease, and some forms of cancer. In this film, Fulkerson examines Dr. Campbell's and Dr. Esselstyn's theories by following the two doctors' individual, yet very similar, story arcs, from their farm-based upbringings to their astounding discoveries. The film also records the experiences of a group of patients suffering from chronic maladies as they participate in an experiment in which their diets are substantially altered and wholesome, plant-based food is, essentially, used as medicine.

Hoo-wow. This compels even a vegetarian to become a vegan. The science and clinical data on health and ability alone are enough to do this in this film. That's amazing considering they barely even touched on the dastardly environmental effects of the livestock industry and then of course the moral issues of eating animals for pleasure, and not necessity. Each reason is so compelling on their own, and together it's a no-brainer.

WOW!! After seeing this movie, I am more determined than ever to continue my journey to plant base diet.
6 month ago I had a test done of my arteries, when the results came back, I was shocked to hear that the age of my arteries are the age of a 83 year old woman (I am 47 yrs old), it took me a couple of days of denial, not wanting to believe the results, but then it hit me.... My Doctor recommended to cut animal products out of my diet or at least decrease some of it, so I decided to completely cut all meat out of my diet, yes it was hard but I manage to do it and to my surprise my cholesterol levels have dropped 102 points, it went from 244 to 142
In six months will have a test to check how my arteries are doing and to see if my diet help reversed the age.

Thank you to all people that help create awareness to this huge problem and to show how it can be easily reversed!
