Forks Over Knives
(skip to the last heading to read the review)
So, as some of you know from my previous blog, Joey and I went to see Forks Over Knives yesterday in Cleveland.
Here is the trailer:
On to the Review:
Anyhow, in regards to Forks Over Knives, the announcers voice was a little...meh. But other than that I really did enjoy it. It's full of images you can't unsee, personal success stories of people who beat the odds health wise, that you can't unhear and information that you can't unlearn.
A lot of it I already knew, but I consider myself to be pretty well read on the subject of nutrition and health, but there were things that were downright shocking to me, like the study where they fed rats animal protein at 20% and it increased the growth of cancer cells, and when they dropped it to 5% the cancer growth stopped.
They were literally able to TURN OFF cancer cell growth by adjusting the amount of animal protein that was being consumed. Why a plant based diet is not endorsed by the govt...augh. Well, as the movie states, they are protecting the status quo.
It's our job to educate ourselves and vote at the grocery store with our dollar. Now, get to it. ;) Let me know if you saw this documentary and what you thought!
