On August 30, acclaimed documentary Forks Over Knives, which has brought mainstream attention to the health benefits of a plant-based diet, will be released on DVD. A compelling exploration of food as medicine, the 90-minute film follows the careers of Dr. T. Colin Campbell and Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn, two researchers who have found evidence that the consumption of animal products and processed foods directly correlates with heart disease, cancer, obesity, and other ailments. The filmmakers follow patients suffering from these health problems as they transition to a whole-foods, plant-based diet, and the subsequent difficulties and rewards of the process are revealed. The DVD’s bonus features include an interview with the filmmakers, and short specials such as “Food as Medicine,” and “What About Organic Meat and Dairy?”
