"Warning. This movie could save your life!"
Documentary FORKS OVER KNIVES examines the profound claim that most, if not all, of the degenerative diseases that afflict us can be controlled, or even reversed, by rejecting our present menu of animal-based and processed foods.
Dr T Colin Campbell, a nutritional scientist from Cornell University, and Dr Caldwell Esselstyn, a former top surgeon at the world renowned Cleveland Clinic made remarkable discoveries in their early careers that inspired them to conduct several groundbreaking studies.
Their separate research led them to the same startling conclusion: 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. In addition, cameras follow "reality patients" who have chronic conditions from heart disease to diabetes, and are taught by their doctors to adopt a whole foods plant-based diet as the primary approach to treat their ailments.
