Must-see movie for everyone who cares about their health!!,
This review is from: Forks Over Knives (DVD) (UK Release) (DVD)
I have already recommended this movie to about 20 people in person- at least 5 of whom I know have gone on to watch it and bought copies of their own. When you find out such powerful information as this movie delivers it is just a crying shame not to tell everyone about it. I stopped eating meat last year after my Dad was diagnosed with stage 2 oesophageal cancer and we did a lot of research into the health benefits of a vegetarian/vegan/macrobiotic diet on cancer sufferers. One year later my Dad is cancer free and the doctors were amazed at his recovery and couldn't believe his response to treatment. We firmly believe this change in diet played a major part in his recovery on account of the reading and research we had done. This movie just reiterates the amazing health benefits of a plant-based diet. It advocates a vegan diet in essence as the focus is on cutting out both meat and dairy but when you weigh up the dietary changes against the threat of cancer, heart disease, diabetes, etc, I think the change (even if gradual) is worth it. It is not a movie that is just telling everyone to stop eating meat- it provides you with many powerful facts that enable you ultimately to make up your own mind.
