Jane Goodall

Renowned primatologist Dr. Jane Goodall features in the documentary and discusses the film’s message: “I think the most important message that I have, is to remember, that you as an individual make a difference,” she says.

The China Study

Author of the popular book “The China Study”, T. Colin Campbell says it is important for people to understand there is a strong correlation between the Western diet and diseases. Westernized diets typically consist of an abundance of animal products, fried food, takeaways, and additives, with a lack of fresh produce – a combination considered to be par optimal in terms of health, leading to a multitude of problems.

Due to an increased affinity with Western-style diets and a food system falling into a dangerous predicament, this documentary aims to be a turning point for people who intend to live devoid of serious health scares and preventable death. The documentary is described as “a life-changing documentary uncovering and revealing the effects of our typical Western diet on our health, the environment and animals. It has a clear message: By changing our eating habits, we can change the world!” 

Dr. Neal Barnard

“This film can save your life,” said Dr. Neal Barnard of the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine. “Take its lessons to heart, and take control of your health. Choosing a plant-based diet will be the best decision you´ve ever made.”

The film notes “[s]ince the beginning of mankind cruelty to animals, it has never been as prevalent as it is in our days.” Contrary to what may be perceived, this relates solely to the extreme conditions of cruelty farmed animals endure, for the sake of satiating the palates of the masses.

Paul McCartney

Vegetarian musician Paul McCartney even shares his sentiment “[t]his important films highlights the choices we must make to help protect this planet and all its inhabitants.”

Me, my wife, and 13-year old all converted to plant-based eating overnight, after watching the 1.5 hour documentary called, “What the Health” Regardless of what debunkers may say and think about this documentary, I can tell you from 8 months of living plant-based daily that we have all not only lost weight and fat, but we all feel amazing.

Appetite isn’t as abundant (when we were eating sugary foods and meats). We just feel overall healthier. It wasn’t that hard to drop all the meats and sugary foods. As long as you maintain discipline, self-control, and focus on the vision it all comes together with ease. For me, my cholesterol went from 200 to around 110.

My wife’s diabetes (type 1) is much more controlled. And my son, who suffers from MG, has experienced significant improvements in health. So much that his doctors are seeing break-through improvements and even took him off medications, of which he was prescribed to be on for the rest of his life.

For 10-years my son would take these medications every 2-hours daily (but not while asleep). For our family going plant-based has truly-truly impacted our lives in so many ways that I cannot list them all. At the end of the day, if we don’t have our health in check, then what is the point in planning long-term when the clock is ticking (that’s metaphor).

Our lifestyle isn’t just plants, it contains many types of seeds, nuts, beans, and whole wheat. It also includes plenty of Almond Milk (if we’re in the mood for it, or is needed for a recipe).

We only get one 1 life and body, so make the best of your temple!

  • My family and I went plant based a few months ago for health benefits and my goal to lose over 100 pounds. I had no idea animals were treated so terrible. The part that bothered me most was when they ripped the testicles out of the piglets and cut off their tales, no sedatives …. nothing. Only strengthens my drive to eat plants. – Ex Life
  • After watching this today i through everything out of my kitchen and felt so sorry for those animals the whole world should come to an agreement to stop killing these animals for our own desires and we don’t get anything out of it except diseases that put our life into risks. – Yaz Ali
