FORKS OVER KNIVES 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. The major storyline traces the personal journeys of Dr. T. Colin Campbell, a nutritional scientist from Cornell University, and Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn, a former top surgeon at the world renowned Cleveland Clinic. Inspired by remarkable discoveries in their young careers, these men conducted several groundbreaking studies. Their separate research led them to the same startling conclusion: degenerative diseases like heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and even several forms of cancer, could almost always be prevented-and in many cases reversed-by adopting a whole foods, plant-based diet. In addition, cameras follow "reality patients" who have chronic conditions from heart disease to diabetes, and are taught by their doctors to adopt a whole foods plant-based diet as the primary approach to treat their ailments.

PS: There is not a lot of footage about animal cruelty in this documentary. As I mentioned, the reason I first became a vegan was due to animal rights, but I am not the type of person who can sit and watch a video that show graphic images. I know what happens, I don't ignore it, but I cannot comfortably sit and watch it. So for those of you like me, rest assured you'll be able to get through this documentary.
Ok this was more of a success story than a real review, but I hoped it helps.
Thank you Drs. Campbell and Esselstyn!
