Morse discusses how Forks Over Knives claims that diseases, such as diabetes and hypertension, can be treated and reversed through plant-based diets. She also emphasizes how individuals in the film, “shed pounds and find new levels of energy,” saying that she herself was, “inspired by the message that we can control our own health through our diets.”
