Forks Over Knives 2011 - Movie
I personally just got around to watching the movie and felt as though I needed to share this information with a few people in my family that also suffer from dis-ease. I highly recommend watching/buying/sharing the movie and hopefully make some wonderful changes to your diet so that you are around the people that love you the most a lot longer. xoxo love Tania
The idea of food as medicine is put to the test. Throughout the film, cameras follow “reality patients” who have chronic conditions from heart disease to diabetes. Doctors teach these patients how to adopt a whole-foods plant-based diet as the primary approach to treat their ailments—while the challenges and triumphs of their journeys are revealed.
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. The major storyline in the film traces the personal journeys of a pair of pioneering yet under-appreciated researchers, Dr. T. Colin Campbell and Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn.
