What has happened to us? Despite the most advanced medical technology in the world, we are sicker than ever by nearly every measure.
Two out of every three of us are overweight. Cases of diabetes are exploding, especially amongst our younger population. About half of us are taking at least one prescription drug. Major medical operations have become routine, helping to drive health care costs to astronomical levels. Heart disease, cancer and stroke are the country’s three leading causes of death, even though billions are spent each year to “battle” these very conditions. Millions suffer from a host of other degenerative diseases.
Could it be there’s a single solution to all of these problems? A solution so comprehensive but so straightforward, that it’s mind-boggling that more of us haven’t taken it seriously?
Forks over Knives examines the profound claim that most, if not all, of the degenerative diseases that afflict us can be controlled, or even reversed, by rejecting animal-based and processed foods. The major storyline in the film traces the personal journeys of a pair of pioneering researchers, Dr. T. Colin Campbell and Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn
One woman in the film was diagnosed with breast cancer and went straight to one of these doctors in L.A. who put her on a 12 week vegan diet. When she went back to the doctor months later, the cancer had disappeared and she never took one pill or one cancer treatment. She simply followed the plan of eating from the ground.
Dr. Campbell and Dr. Esselstyn actually show how animal proteins caused cancer to grow and how fruits, vegetables, and whole grains made those same cancer cells disappear.
