Great news! If you have access to Netflix streaming, which it seems most people do these days, you can head over there right now and watch Forks Over Knives, an engaging and highly informative documentary about the benefits of eating a plant-based diet.
The film primarily features the work of two doctors: T. Colin Campbell, Ph.D. and Caldwell B. Esselstyn, Jr., M.D.
These two men got to a point in their careers where they had to do some soul searching about what they were doing as doctors and change their opinions on where their work would take them. They now prefer to work with plant foods as a preventative measure in dealing with disease.
This is just one of the most recent in a line of food documentaries focussing on the benefits of plant based foods, and how the food system we’ve all played a part in setting up for our convenience is wreaking havoc on our bodies, our planet and our connection to every other living thing.
I have some new heroes in my life after watching this film.
