Forks Over Knives

“The doctor of the future will no longer treat the human frame with drugs, but rather will cure and prevent disease with nutrition.”
                                                  -Thomas Edison

I recently saw this documentary on the healing power of food.  I have done some research and have found a lot of people are skeptical, some are even nonbelievers, about plant based diets. Some people are even going to the lengths of discrediting the research done in this film.  Now, I am not a big research buff, and throwing numbers and big fancy words at me isn’t going to help.  However, the people who made this film, and the doctors featured, really know there stuff.  It really is mind boggling how many people will turn their cheeks and continue to eat the way they do, when %35.7 percent of the population (%17 of children) are obese.  With obesity comes so many health issues. The thing that really bothers me is that the US is in trillions of dollars in debt, and we spend a ridiculous amount of money every year on health care, when in reality, we should be spending that on preventive medicine and educating people on how to eat.  Fast food is killing our country.

Anyway, enough of me ranting, just watch the movie and see for yourself.  Below is a link to the official Forks Over Knives website, with a brief summary of what the movie is about.  It is worth seeing. Watching this movie made me feel even better about my choice to lead a healthier lifestyle, and my adventure with my vegan diet.
