Maybe you haven't heard of this movie, but it's incredibly informative, inspirational, and just plain riveting -- and yes, it's all about how our diet either causes disease or prevents and reverses chronic illness. Even though I had read it all before, I couldn't stop watching!
Best yet: it's a movie you can stream on Netflix! Please watch it and let me hear your thoughts! It's called Forks Over Knives.
My favorite (paraphrased) quote from a heart surgeon interviewed in the movie:
"Some people say the plant-based diet I propose to prevent and reverse heart disease is 'extreme.'" Do you know what's really extreme? Cutting open a person's chest cavity and leg, removing blood vessels from the leg to transplant near the heart (a cardiac bypass)."
Sometimes we forget that what's "common" is actually quite extreme!
