DR. OZ MENTIONED THIS MOVIE ON HIS SHOW, FORKS OVER KNIVES

Saturday, May 28, 2011

I saw this movie tonight, if you get a chance, please check it out.

It just might save a life. Let me know what you think.

It was very thought provoking. If you haven't seen it please do. If you have saw it, please share your thoughts.

This movie is about a two physicians who have done extensive studies on the impact of a plant based diet vs. an animal based diet. on the human condition. The more animal by product in your diet, the higher the incident of cancer.

Are there any vegetarians or vegans out there? Anybody thinking about it?

    I'm a former vegetarian who became ill as a result of a plant based diet due to severe vitamin deficiencies. I had to take vitamin K shots for many years due to clotting problems and still have to have labs before certain medial procedures. I have known a lot of fat vegetarians who eat horrible filled with doughnuts, pasta, cookies, and candy. I don't choose my diet on yet another bad nonscientific study. I believe in avoiding processed foods and eat FRESH meat/veggies/fruits/seeds/nuts/heal
    thy fats.

    With all the hormones and antibiotics feed to the animals and all the pesticide sprayed on the food and then they also go and modify the food to be something else. yeah I can see why Americans are the sickest in the world and it is spreading to other countries because they are forcing the GMO's on the other countries in order to get money from our government.

    I believe in more plant based foods. I still believe in meat, too. You just gotta be careful in choice and prep; not have all the processed food or frankenfoods. No dairy - I'm on board with that one, too. Least for me and my DNA. If everyone ate more veg and some fruit - it'd be a good thing.

    I've been a vegetarian most of my life, infact, when I became a vegetarian, there weren't different types of vegetarians, you either ate meat or not. Meat has always grossed me out, that's why I quit eating it, but I have learned over the years the health advantages of not eating meat. Though, it's not a "weight loss" lifestyle or diet! There are plenty of over weight vegheads...peanut butter & beer are vegetarian!

    I am a vegetarian making the switch to becoming a vegan.

    I seen the movie last week. I took my boyfriend so he could get educated. (He's a flexatarian right now, making the switch to vegetarian) I had already read the books by the doctors in the movie so I knew what it was about. I found it easier for him to see the movie, instead of trying to explain it all.

    It's eye-opening and more people should see it. It can change peoples lives.

    I'm planning to give my family Forks Over Knives and Food Inc DVD's so they can hopefully, educate themselves.

    Thank you for sharing the info. I will watch for it. Even without watching the film, it does not surprise me. The food industry has become so powerful and the addition of genetically modified/artificial 'everything' who knows what you're really eating these days.

    Again thank you. I can't wait to see it.

    It makes sense, especially with all the hormones fed to animals and then we ingest that into our systems...thanks for sharing

    There's a lot of truth to this. We can all benefit by eating more plants and less meat. I'm not ready to give up all meat, but I'm working to eat smaller portions of meat, and more plant sources of protein, like peas and beans.
