Forks Over Knives (new film)

by KalaLea on May 10, 2011 • Posted in News

Raise your hand if someone in your family has been diagnosed with hypertension, heart disease, allergies, or diabetes? Or how many members of your family are obese or overweight?

Unfortunately, it’s all too common and no longer an American issue. The so-called American diet is changing the way people eat all over the world. Last Friday, I left this film eager to host a private screening for my family and dear friends. The filmmaker, Brian Wendel read The China Study, by T. Colin Campbell and realized that a whole foods plant-based diet could prevent—and even reverse— various diseases. A powerful documentary, Forks Over Knives opened in NY and LA last week and will be released this Friday the 13th in several cites throughout the US and Canada.

This statement from Dr. Campbell who appears in the film struck me:
“After a long career in research and policy-making, I have decided to step ‘out of the system’. I have decided to disclose why Americans are so confused,” said Dr. Campbell. “As a taxpayer who foots the bill for research and health policy in America, you deserve to know that many of the common notions you have been told about food, health and disease are wrong.”

“I propose to do nothing less than redefine what we think of as good nutrition. You need to know the truth about food, and why eating the right way can save your life.”
