|Forks over Knives|
There are very few movies that I can think of that can actually change your life. Supersize Me, Passion of the Christ, and the Ring come to mind. (The Ring will make you fear "snow" on TV for the rest of your life ;) Well, I have found another to add to that pile. Forks over Knives.
I really didn't know too much about this movie until just a few minutes before I watched it. As you guys know, I am trying to go vegan. I have been doing a TON of research on this. I came across a few people talking about this movie and figured I needed to watch it. I posted on FB if anyone had already seen it or had the movie, and I friend said you could watch it on Netflix. So...I signed up for the free trial and downloaded that baby at around 10pm last night!
It was well worth it. The movie centers on quite a few doctors who believe that most diseases in the world can be cured by a whole foods, plant based diet. This is not just a random theory. These doctors have massive amounts of science and clinical studies to back this information up. I don't even want to give all of the goodness away!
This is NOT your typical vegan documentary. Although it touches on the moral issues of being vegan, this is mostly a movie based on the heath side of the life style. Lots of statistics, and not just about America.
If anyone you know is suffering from anything such as COPD, hypertension, diabetes, high cholesterol, obesity or any type of cancer-I would suggest watching this. They touch on all of these diseases and more.
If you have seen this movie-what did you think?
*Nope. Notta. Zip. No money was given to me to write this post. It is NOT sponsored by Forks over Knives by any means. My opinion is 100 percent my own. I just wanted to share a great thing with you guys!
