Recently I watched a movie called "Forks Over Knives", just another documentary about healthy food choices, our national food & obesity epidemic, and the S.A.D diet (yes, those are the acronyms for Standard American Diet, and they are not far off). This movie was more or less news and information I already knew, since I read The China Study years ago. This was the book in documentary form, from explaining the theories of Dr. Campbell and Dr. Esselstyn, who lament the american diet and encourage to eat a animal-product free diet (vegan) or what they call in the movie, "Plant based whole foods", which is also becoming a popular buzz phrase in itself.
I would recommend this information to everyone because if their claims are true--that diet and nutrition (plant based whole foods) can decrease and diminish cancers and disease--it could literally save this nation billions of money in health care (going from solution based to preventative), keep us all more healthy, and of course, fit, which is also a huge problem in the US.
I know these are very general statements, but The China Study in itself is such a researched and academic read that it's hard to go into without writing 10 huge posts on it to convey all the information. For this reason alone, I'd recommend this documentary, as it puts the book into a visual form, allowing easy access to very important information.
So...we've all been told to eat more leafy greens...what are you waiting for?! At least research it! It could save your life.
