5.0 out of 5 stars GIVE MEAT THE CHOP !!!, 25 Aug. 2011

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Eating - 3rd Edition (DVD)
The message of this DVD is so powerful that, after watching an earlier edition, golfing legend Gary Player became a strict vegetarian & has vowed to educate 200-300 million children worldwide into eating well.
Mike Anderson points out that heart disease and cancer were once almost unknown amongst working class Americans. Heart disease is now the number one killer in the USA and 40% of Americans will be diagnosed with cancer.(meat consumption doubled in the 20th Century). According to Anderson, Eating poorly now kills 2 out of 3 Americans. The DVD contains interviews with Doctors and patients who overcame cancer or heart disease simply by changing to a plant-based diet. The popular myths that you need to eat meat to get enough protein and also consume dairy to get enough calcium are demolished.
The power of the meat industry is examined ;- how it receives huge government subsidies, how it influences government policy on determining guidelines to consumers and how little is spent on promoting the consumption of plant foods compared to the amount spent on promoting meat products.
The DVD also looks at the environmental impact of eating meat :- it takes 13 lbs of grain to produce 1 lb of beef, 87% of farming land is used to grow feed for animals, crops are feed to animals whilst millions of humans die of starvation, methane gas is the number one source of global warming and there is also the problem of animal waste. The world's fish stock levels are at crisis point due to the fact that 50% of fish caught, are caught to feed livestock. The DVD ends by listing famous people who have followed a Vegetarian/Vegan diet.
Veggies, Vegans and meat-reducers will love this DVD - macho meat-eating fundamentalists like jeremy clarkson will hate it!
