Recent research proves there is a correlation between deadly diseases and the amount of meat, dairy and processed foods consumed. The research from two world-renowned experts, biochemist and co-author of The China Study, Dr. T. Colin Campbell Ph.D., and internationally acclaimed physician and author of Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease, Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn, Jr., M.D.America is suffering from a health epidemic – heart disease, cancer and stroke are the country’s three leading causes of death and the medicines prescribed to remedy these and other diseases cost this country over $120 billion dollars each year.
Forks Over Knives examines the profound claim that most, if not all, of the degenerative diseases that afflict Americans can be controlled, or even reversed, by rejecting 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, Jr., a former top surgeon at the world-renowned Cleveland Clinic. Inspired by remarkable discoveries in their young careers, these men conducted several groundbreaking studies and 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 real-life patients who have chronic conditions from heart disease to Diabetes. Doctors teach these patients how to adopt a whole food, plant-based diet as the primary approach to treat these ailments—while the challenges and triumphs of their journeys are revealed.
The Entertainment Merchants Association (EMA) awarded Forks Over Knives as the best Documentary/Special Interest Title of the Year for Indie Films.
