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.

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.

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!!!!!

My health and my life and the lives of many family and friends have been transformed due to the knowledge imparted thru the books these doctors and doctors like them, like Dr. John McDougall have written. No negative comments can be justified unless the writer has tried this way of eating, correctly, and for at least a week. After one week (or less) feeling the positive changes taking place in your body will give way to being a fan for life. Why? because this is a life giving lifestyle change.

I had what I thought were intractible allergies...they have been gone for around ten years now.

I no longer have asthma. It was nice to dispense with the inhalers.

My blood pressure was high and I was resistant to take antihypertensives...my B/P has been on the low side both systolically and diastolically for years.

My total cholesterol at the last reading was 133 and it had been around 212 before eating this way.

I had hot flashes...that is definitely an animal product induced problem...eating low fat vegan equals absolutely no hot flashes. And, Ladies, all cellulite has disappeared.

I have the energy of a ten year old....and the joy. This is no exaggeration.

Symptoms of arthritis left and never returned.

I sleep like a baby...and don't require all of the sleep I needed before. I awake happy and ready to meet the day.

I weigh 112 lbs. at age 60!

My vision improved, my skin is softer.

My endurance for physical work and exercise is phenomenal.

I no longer experience heart burn and I am without gastrointestinal complaints... period.

I had a heart procedure before adopting this lifestyle and this lifestyle change cured a heart disorder.
