About the Movie

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 utterly 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 so-called “diseases of affluence” that afflict us can be controlled, or even reversed, by rejecting our present menu of animal-based and processed foods. The major storyline in the film traces the personal journeys of a pair of pioneering yet under-appreciated researchers, Dr. T. Colin Campbell and Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Makes a pedantic yet persuasive case for banishing meat and dairy from the dinner table. – Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times, May 6, 2011

Fresh: Even if you're a junk-food junkie, this exploration of the health benefits of a ''plant-based diet'' is so scrupulously researched and argued that only a fool would ignore its findings. – Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly, May 4, 2011

Fresh: One of the more convincing, radical and politically volatile docus to come out of the burgeoning good-food genre. – John Anderson, Variety, May 6, 2011

Rotten: Instead of preaching, why don't the nutrition Nazis figure out a way to make plant-based foods taste better? You are never going to force an entire population to live on spinach. – Rex Reed, New York Observer, May 11, 2011

Think about it..

We are the only species that drinks another species milk and the only species that continues to drink milk after infancy. Dairy and animal meat is not a necessity as the industry would have us believe. I have not had meat or dairy for 20 years and my blood tests are normal, I'm not on any medication, and I feel great everyday. This is a very important film!

Very interesting information

Information about the impact of food on our today's live, thing that we need to know to understand the world of lies that we live in, this movie change the way i see the food industry.

Knives and forks
