"Convincing, Radical and Politically Volatile" --Variety

Product Description

This feature film 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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Its About Time! May 30, 2011
I saw this movie in the theater on May 28. It is excellent, and should serve as a wake-up call to all who see it to get their eating-habits act together. As one who has spent time in the hospital recovering from congestive heart failure and subsequently converted to a plant-based diet, I can personally attest to the efficacy of Drs. Esselstyn and Campbell's approach. I am now off all but one of the Meds, and am only continuing with that one because it helps my kidneys repair themselvs from the diabetes damage I inflicted on them with my previous eating habits. When they have recovered sufficiently, I will be off all meds.

My resting blood pressure (BP) is now in the normal range without meds (typically about 115/70, down from mid 180s/80), no thanks to my cardiologist who was perfectly happy to keep me on three BP medications indefinitely. My weight is now about 170 lbs, down from over 400 lbs. My heart ejection fraction is now in the mid 60s, up from 42 when I went into the hospital. I can now walk an aerobic 5 miles without breathing hard. My total cholesterol is about 120 with the LDL about 90 and the HDL about 35.

This movie is one everyone should see. If you let it, it will change your life.

5.0 out of 5 stars I almost died - will you? August 29, 2011
Format:DVD
This movie contains information that could save your life. In October 2009, at age 52, while running a mile around my neighborhood as I did every morning, I staggered a couple of steps and hit the ground unconscious in full cardiac arrest. Heart disease is the leading killer in this country (needlessly as this movie shows) and the most common type of heart attack is the one like mine that comes with no warning. Survival for cardiac arrest outside the hospital is about 3%. I was extremely lucky - you might not be.

After my heart attack, my doctors said nothing to me about diet. In fact, later after learning about the work of Campbell and Esselstyn (featured in this movie), I asked my doctor how much time they spent in medical school learning the relationship between nutrition and health. His answer - none! If you see this movie, you will know more about the affect of nutrition on health than my doctor, and perhaps more than your doctor too. See this movie.

I applaud everyone involved in making this movie. It is based on scientific research, yet made understandable to all of us, with personal stories included that make it easy to relate. I saw this movie in the theater. I can't wait for the DVD to come out so I can give copies to all my family, friends, and all the others in my life that I don't want to suddenly die needlessly.

By the way, after a year and a half of adhering to the advice of Esslestyn, Campbell, McDougall, and others, I've eliminated my heart medications including the damaging statins, while still reducing my total cholesterol level to 160. I've lost weight, my blood sugar is down, my blood pressure is good, and I'm able to run two miles every day.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Must-See Movie for Plant-Based Nutrition May 6, 2011
This movie combines the scientific and medical work of Dr. T. Colin Campbell, PhD Professor Emeritus in Nutritional Biochemistry at Cornell University, and Dr. Caldwell B. Esselstlyn, Jr., MD, surgeon at the world-renowed Cleveland Clinic, and the incredibly INSPIRING story of two FORMER heart disease patients and two FORMER diabetes patients.

This movie is POSITIVE, ACCURATE, and HOPEFUL. It is the perfect introduction to the concept of plant-based nutrition, and it offers very attainable role models in the patients to empower people to take their health into their own hands.

There are no segments of tortured animals - just wonderful information, top athletes, and people reversing their chronic disease.

Everyone needs to see this movie!!!!!

This movie came out right as I finished reading The China Study. Took the family to see this in the theater and we all agreed right then and there that we were all done eating the standard American diet. It opened up our eyes to the realities of a Westernized diet and how to avoid those illnesses that are killing our family, friends and neighbors. A must-see for everyone.

5.0 out of 5 stars Planting The Seeds of Change June 2, 2011
My husband and I just got home from seeing Forks over Knives with two friends who like us are over 65. We were very impressed. I want to thank everyone who had a hand in the making of this film. You have to know that you have "planted the seeds of change" for the world! We have all read the China Study book and have changed our eating habits...but watching the movie renewed our conviction that this is the only way to eat and like another reviewer said, "die from old age!"

It's unbelieveable that the marketing of meat and dairy products has now influenced our neighbors in Europe and Asia. So sad, that they had it RIGHT!!! Now they will see what damage will be done to their health from straying from the plant based diet they had enjoyed with such good health. Hopefully if we change ...they will also.

No longer will we have to raise millions of cattle to feed us into oblivion. I pray we see this in our lifetime, as we do plan to live a long time.

Can't wait for the cookbook.!!!!

We will be buying the DVD and share it with others.

Warm thanks,
Ginny C., Mesa Arizona
