If you haven’t seen it already, watch the documentary Forks Over Knives. You can watch it instantly on Netflix if you are a Netflix subscriber. You can also order the DVD at www.forksoverknives.com and host your own screening.
The documentary includes this juicy quote from T. Colin Campbell, PhD, who is one of the world’s most prominent nutrition scientists:
I know of nothing else in medicine that can come close to what a plant-based diet can do. I can say this with a great deal of confidence, that our national authorities are simply excluding this concept of nutrition from the debate, in the discussion, in order to protect the status quo. In theory, if everyone were to adopt this, I really believe that we could cut healthcare costs by 70% to 80%.
