One of the reasons I'm doing doing the E2 Diet with Whole Foods is to bring awareness to the release of the movie "Forks Over Knives". In the next few days I'll be doing some giveaways in conjunction with the movie - stay tuned for details. For now, I'm going to let the FOK website tell you what it's about...
"What has happened to us? Despite the most advanced medical technology in the world, we are sicker than ever by nearly every measure.
"Two out of every three of us are overweight. Cases of diabetes are exploding, especially amongst our younger population. About half of us are taking at least one prescription drug. Major medical operations have become routine, helping to drive health care costs to astronomical levels. Heart disease, cancer and stroke are the country’s three leading causes of death, even though billions are spent each year to “battle” these very conditions. Millions suffer from a host of other degenerative diseases.
"Could it be there’s a single solution to all of these problems? A solution so comprehensive but so utterly straightforward, that it’s mind-boggling that more of us haven’t taken it seriously?
"Forks Over Knives" examines the profound claim that most, if not all, of the so-called “diseases of affluence” that afflict us can be controlled, or even reversed by rejecting our present menu of animal-based and processed foods."
The movie premiered last night in Chicago and will be premiering in Minneapolis on Wednesday, May 18th at the Lagoon Cinema. I can't wait to see it! You can see the trailer on the link above or right here.
