‘Here Is a Film That Could Save Your Life’
That’s the first line of acclaimed movie critic Roger Ebert’s review of Forks Over Knives, a new documentary that examines the effect that animal-based, highly processed diets have on our health and shows how diseases can be controlled or reversed with healthy, plant-based foods. Among the experts in the film is Dr. Neal Barnard, the founder and president of the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine, whose program for reversing diabetes involves eating a healthy vegan diet.
The film hit close to home for Ebert, a cancer survivor whose diet now is based on fresh fruits and vegetables. He gave the film two thumbs up and noted:
We couldn’t have said it better. Forks Over Knives is playing in select cities across the U.S. and Canada, and for the rest of us, the eye-opening film definitely sounds worthy of putting in the queue.
