“A film that can save your life.”- Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
Forks Over Knives is not just another movie about slaughter houses and why you should become a vegetarian. Its focus is not even on all of the terrible things that go on in the meat industry these days. It’s the first movie that I’ve seen that legitimately describes the health benefits of eating a vegan diet, and it does it while maintaining a relatively positive tone.
I’ve already sung my praise for The China Study – and since this movie really reinforces everything that the book tries to explain – I’m sure you can predict my reaction after seeing it. In addition to Dr. T. Colin Campbell’s findings, the movie also talks about findings from Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn and showcases several case studies that clearly demonstrate the dramatic improvements the switch to a vegan diet can provide to one that is struggling with various health issues.
What really hit home for me was seeing the individuals who undertook the challenge of eating vegan throughout the video, and the results that they ended up with. I was amazed. Nothing quite makes a piece of information more believable than seeing it with your own eyes.
My hat goes off to the creators of the movie – congratulations on a spectacularly moving, life changing film.
The down side is that it isn’t playing in theaters nationwide– I drove almost two hours to see it. However if it isn’t in a theater nearby, gather your family and friends and make a road trip out of it. Trust me, its well worth it!
Have you seen the film yet? What are your thoughts?
