Online PR News – 29-May-2011 – – The revolutionary documentary on fast food nutrition facts filmed in the Canada, China, and the United States is the opus of pioneers Dr. T. Colin Campbell and Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn. The documentary is premised on the scientists’ research of how our current problems on obesity and its related medical conditions can be solved by abstaining from meat and processed foods. The documentary ‘Forks over Knives’ is the personal journey of the two researchers who made life-transforming discoveries through their study of the impact of huge quantities of animal-based foods on children. Dr. Campbell, Cornell University nutritional scientist, made his groundbreaking discovery while in the Philippines. He noticed that an excess intake of animal-based foods was responsible for an increased likelihood of children getting afflicted with liver cancer. Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn, top surgeon, head of the Breast Cancer Task Force, and the eminent Cleveland Clinic, discovered that the common diseases found in areas of high meat consumption were next to nonexistent in regions where there was less consumption of meat and animal-based foods.
Though they worked independently all those years, the duo came to the same conclusion through separate research studies and experiments that they conducted as a part of their analysis. This documentary ‘Forks over Knives’ (forksoverknives.com) also contains the details of the research in China that clearly indicates that a number of degenerative medical conditions like type 2 diabetes, heart disease, and even a number of different forms of cancer could not only be prevented but also reversed by sticking with a plant-based diet and whole foods. The documentary makers travelled with the doctors to China and Cleveland to establish these facts for themselves where they noticed that the efficacy of following a plant-based remains unmatched, unparalleled and unquestionable.
The documentary employs advanced 3D graphics and rare archival footage to present beautifully its examination of the issues relating diet with disease. Four decades of research has gone into this documentary in a bid to show the world how we can improve not just economic stability but also control the increasing cost of healthcare by improving the overall state of health.
