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!
It is carefully presented and makes perfect sense.

My wish for the world is for EVERYONE to see this incredible DVD which will literally save your life! Invest a few bucks, see the DVD, then pass it on to all your friends and loved ones. You won't regret it.
My favorite was a 19-year old who lives in a rooming house in Brooklyn with several moms of small children. She insisted I sell her my copy so she wouldn't have to wait for it! And then she held a seminar in the house to teach the mothers how to feed their children well!
It deserves more than 5 stars because it is a real public service. And unlike others who've made good films on the health benefits of the vegan diet, Mike Anderson charges a very reasonable price.
Being raw vegan, I'd suggest that makes the vegan diet even better. I've been doing this for 35 years and feel great. And perhaps the biggest plus is that your mind shifts into a peaceful place.
I have experienced several periods of "detoxification" (your body does this naturally as those vegetables go through you!) with accompanying low energy. This lasts maybe a day or two, then I feel much better than before.
Whereas I walked sporadically before the diet, I now walk 1-to-4 miles every day, simply because I feel better.
The DVD needs a Scene Selection option, but other than that it offers excellent value for the money. The first part of the DVD explains how animal-based diets are killing you; the second part explains how animal-based diets are destroying the planet. It's an eye-opener.
Unfortunately the problem stems from the food guidelines set forth by the USDA itself. The people setting the dietary requirements are the very people who want to sell their dairy products, meat products and other animal based products. Hence, the USDA dietary guidelines are baseless. This has been fully corroborated by my own failures at restoring health despite strictly adhering to the USDA requirements. However, after I switched to a plant based diet, my recovery and detoxification were very rapid.
After 20+ yrs of acute symptoms of various sorts, without a conclusive diagnosis from any physician, I was finally healed through detoxification and a plant based diet. I know I'll be on a plant based diet for the rest of my lifetime. In fact, I plan on growing my own leafy greens when I move into a house. In the meantime I'll put in a container garden in the balcony of my apartment.
The results in my improved health speak for themself. I had high and unstable BP, chronic and acute insomnia, acute sciatica, difficulty breathing, tiredness, chronic diarhea, joint pains and stiffness, edema etc. However, after becoming a vegan and doing juicing and raw food living, all of my symptoms have simply vanished.
One has to make the changes and stay with them to see the incredible results. Mike Anderson has done for the cause of health and elimination of cruelty to animals, what the saints have done to bring God's love into this world. Mike's work is going to serve like the beacon from a lighthouse to all those seeking refuge from the barrage of misinformation presented by the food and drug industry, the govt agencies (USDA and FDA), the physicians and the health insurance quagmire.

Food Inc. DVD
The DVD below is is an excellent DVD. One must watch the bonus feature titled -- The Gerson Therapy: A director's Perspective. It has several convincing case histories based upon the healing power of alternate approaches using the plant based diet. The case histories in the bonus feature alone are worth the price of the DVD.
The Beautiful Truth
Modern medicine, the agribusiness, health insurance and the govt regulatory agencies have all gone comepletely astray. They are all sending us to an early grave. It is for us to wade through the morass of misinformation to arrive at the correct path of covalescing through proper nutrition. One cannot depend on any of the above sources.
Steve Meyerowitz's books on sprouting, wheatgrass, raw foods, juicing and his other titles are also chock full of "how to" implement the plant based lifestyle. He got it right!
If one detoxifies through a plant based diet, and takes to yoga, I can guarantee that such a person will never fall ill or need medical coverage.
This Eating DVD by Mike Anderson is a must watch. I know I'll be buying many more to give to everyone so as to save them from a lifetime of disability and poor health. Mike is right!
