Movie Review: Forks Over Knives – The Basis for a Cancer Fighting Diet

forks-over-knives-movieposterForks over Knives, by Dr. T. Colin Campbell and Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn, is one of the most important movies on health and lifestyle and you need to watch it!  This is NOT a movie about dieting or being a vegan.  It’s about what we need to eat to be healthy.

The stories of  patients on death’s door, sent home to prepare for death, who were completely healed by these Doctors is simply mind boggling. When you see it, you can not help but be moved and motivated to take your health more seriously and reconsider what you eat.

If you have Netflix, you can watch the entire movie there, along with the extended interview version.

This is the description from the Youtube post

What has happened to us? Despite the most advanced medical technology in the world, we are sicker than ever by nearly every measure.

Two out of every three of us are overweight. Cases of diabetes are exploding, especially amongst our younger population. About half of us are taking at least one prescription drug. Major medical operations have become routine, helping to drive health care costs to astronomical levels. Heart disease, cancer and stroke are the country’s three leading causes of death, even though billions are spent each year to “battle” these very conditions. Millions suffer from a host of other degenerative diseases.

Could it be there’s a single solution to all of these problems? A solution so comprehensive but so utterly straightforward, that it’s mind-boggling that more of us haven’t taken it seriously?

FORKS OVER KNIVES examines the profound claim that most, if not all, of the so-called “diseases of affluence” that afflict us can be controlled, or even reversed, by rejecting our present menu of animal-based and processed foods. The major storyline in the film traces the personal journeys of a pair of pioneering yet under-appreciated researchers, Dr. T. Colin Campbell and Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn.
