As a nation recovers from the post Thanksgiving stupor and licks its wounds from cage fighting for half priced flatscreen TV’s and Xbo 360′s, I’d like to examine something most of us take for granted until it is too late. In the land of the diabetic toddler and home of the quintuple bypass, our health is something many people are thankful for yet only in passing as true health is overlooked until someone is sick and sickness is supplemented with a bevy of over the counter and prescription drugs that typically have side effects worse than the disease you’re treating.
I’d like to shed light upon the film ‘Forks Over Knives’, which examines the relationship between diet and health. Having thought at length about modifying my diet to exclude animal based products replacing them with more plant based foods, this film served as the catalyst for striving to make such a change. To keep it short and sweet here is the trailer below. Also the film is streaming on Netflix so for all my fans of instant gratification they got you covered.
