(Dr. T. Colin Campbell, Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn Jr. / DVD / NR / 2012 / True Mind)
Overview: Where have we gone wrong? Why has the death rate from heart disease and cancer exploded in recent times? Why are the ice caps melting, the oceans dying and the forests being cut down as we produce the food necessary to support our burgeoning populations?
Against a backdrop of colorful and delicious food grown by organic farmers and prepared in the kitchens of world-famous chefs, 'PLANEAT' for the first time brings together the ground-breaking studies of three prominent scientists who have made it their life's work to answer these questions.
DVD Verdict: When I first watched 'PlanEAT' I was completely taken aback by the message that it continually feeds us. Back a while ago it was made a part of a film festival that Whole Foods put on. I wasn't there, but I heard about it and so when it was released on DVD I knew I had to own it. If not to review and spread the word, but to keep and change my own personal life.
Once watched, to suggest I was even vaguely aware of the benefits of a plant-based diet would be a complete fabrication. Indeed, in full exposure of truth, I had no idea that eating plants can reverse heart disease and arrest cancer growth. I mean, that is not news that is freely documented on a regular basis!
'PlanEAT' is a documentary that EVERYONE should watch - immediatly! It is a real, truly huge eye-opener for those not already aware of the work of doctors T.Colin Campbell and Caldwell Esselstyn (Bill Clinton's heart doc). That said, it also focuses on the benefits to the planet from reducing our intake of animal protein.
It goes on to show how plant-based diets can mean eating amazing food, with top chefs like Chad Sarno from Whole Foods and the team at New York's Pure Food & Wine, amongst others. It also, thankfully demonstrates some amazing recipes for healthy, plant-based eating. I know it sounds weird, it does, but trust me this is going to change your life!
This wonderful documentary has already changed my diet to a plant-based intake, I feel better, I am losing weight, I feel great, and most all of it tastes just SO GOOD! So, if you are looking to improve your health and do something good for our planet, this is the DVD for you! This is a Widescreen Presentation 1.78:1 enhanced for 16x9 TVs.
