Forks Over Knives: A Worthwhile Documentary

Forks Over Knives

Bob calls Forks Over Knives a very worthwhile film and encouraged all of us at Bob’s Red Mill to take ourselves and families to go see it. I have seen this documentary twice already, and even though I have eaten a plant based diet for 15 years now, I still learned a wealth of information and was reminded to focus on whole foods in my diet.

Forks Over Knives deals with the health crisis in America and how to use nutrition as medicine. The film concentrates on the correlation of increased meat, dairy, and sugar consumption with the influx of our biggest killers as a nation; heart disease, cancer, and type-2 diabetes. Although the medical community works hard to find cures for what ails us, often times the actual cause of disease is overlooked and is often related to diet and lifestyle.

Dr. T. Collin Campbell and Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn are groundbreaking scientists using their education, years of research, clinical experience, and observations to separately come to the realization that a plant based diet will increase human health, and that the standard American diet leads to disease. Research has further shown that a plant based diet will not only keep you healthy, but it can actually reverse some health conditions, especially of the heart.

Although the idea of completely changing your diet can be overwhelming, the documentary looked at individuals with compromised health who embraced a plant based diet. This resulted in not only an increased standard of living, but in many cases, even saved peoples' lives. Individuals were able to reverse health conditions, stop taking medications, and feel better than ever. It was truly remarkable and encouraging to see these transformations.

I truly appreciate all the information the film provided and the undeniable facts concerning our food choices in America. This is a must-see film for every one who wants to live a healthier life. Forks Over Knives releases nationwide in May.
