We don’t mean to be stepping on our soapbox every time we praise the merits of eating healthy (Morgan Spurlock’s Super Size Me, Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution or Eric Schlosser’s Fast Food Nation and Food Inc among others), but we really can’t help but be very passionate about the issues relating to food quality and consumption in this nation where one third of our population is now overweight… and that’s not just the adults. As we well know, this has translated to explosive, record rates of diabetes, heart disease, cancer and strokes and other degenerative diseases.

The Forks over Knives film depicts these “diseases of affluence” and explains how they can be reversed by adopting a whole-foods, plant-based diet. The major storyline in the film traces the personal journeys of Dr. T. Colin Campbell, a nutritional scientist from Cornell University, and Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn, a former top surgeon at the world renowned Cleveland Clinic. They individually conducted several groundbreaking studies which led them to the same startling conclusion, that degenerative diseases like heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and even several forms of cancer, could almost always be prevented—and in many cases reversed—by adopting a whole foods, plant-based diet.

As expected, because it is well against the best interest of Big Corps, these findings have received very little attention. Until now. So, please see the film and TALK about it.

Conclusion. Eat your veggies. And lots of them.
