Eat to live? or Live to eat?
The commercialized world makes us think we Live to eat! This brilliant film FORKS OVER KNIVES, shows us through scientific research and studies done ages ago before commercials and fast food outlets took charge, what food use to mean.
Every year, over 500,000 Americans have heart by pass surgery. 40% of the population is obese. Remember, I am not included all the overweight people.
America leads the world in diabetes, heart disease and other degenerative diseases. However, all of these can be controlled. And it is not by taking drugs.
It’s about changing what we eat.
America’s healthcare problem could be solved by changing the way we eat.
Lee Fulkerson has made as movie that could save your life!
Lee takes us around the world and shows us how different eating patterns lead to healthier lives. This film is engaging, well crafted and so important to see.
I recommend everyone watch this film!
