The Next Food, Inc.?

movie_ticketsIn 2004, Super Size Me illustrated the power of the nutrition documentary.  Three years later, King Corn captured the nation’s attention and shone a spotlight on the political and health — both public and individual — consequences of corn subsidies.  Last year, Food, Inc. entranced millions with its expose of agrobusiness and the beef industry.

I wouldn’t be surprised if, in a few months’ time, the documentary on everyone’s lips is Forks Over Knives.

Per the film’s website, FOK “examines the profound claim that most, if not all, of the degenerative diseases that afflict us can be controlled, or even reversed, by rejecting our present menu of animal-based and processed foods.”

The experts who participated in the film include some heavy hitters. I especially look forward to seeing someone I very much look up to and respect — Dr. Neal Barnard of the Physicians’ Committee for Responsible Medicine.

Check out the documentary’s trailer here.  If you don’t have the latest version of Adobe, you can also view it on YouTube.

The trailer isn’t too explicit, but certainly sets up interesting groundwork regarding disease management, health consequences of diets high in animal products, and critiques of government-backed dietary advice.

I sincerely hope — and have faith — that the movie will avoid the common pitfall of much vegan-related literature and deliver a powerful message without resorting to scare tactics (“give up meat or die at age 50!”) or preaching (“there is no such thing as a healthy diet that includes a single animal product”).

After the horrifically inaccurate travesty that was Skinny Bitch, it’s about time the vegan community had a scientifically sound and serious resource they can unabashedly stand behind and feel proud of.  I have a feeling Forks Over Knives just might be it.

Many thanks to Samantha Collis for directing me to the Forks Over Knives website.
