I hope you enjoyed yesterday's documentary suggestion. I've seen Forks Over Knives a couple of times and it doesn't get old. The film follows Dr. T. Colin Campbell and Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn through their separate journeys of research, studies and life-changing discoveries. Dr. Campbell is best known for his work on the China Study which is the most comprehensive large study of nutrition ever conducted, spanning over 20 years. And Dr. Esselstyn is a top surgeon and head of the Breast Cancer Task Force at the world-renowned Cleveland Clinic. Through their studies each of them came to the same startling conclusion: degenerative diseases like heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and even several forms of cancer, could almost always be prevented—and in many cases reversed—by adopting a whole-foods, plant-based diet. WOW. Doesn't that make you want to eat your veggies?
Well if that's not enough, I have two great suggestions for you today.
The first one follows Kris Carr, who is diagnosed with a rare and incurable cancer, while she looks for alternative and holistic treatments. This movie is funny, moving, uplifting and reminds us to really start living.
Crazy Sexy Cancer is more than a thought provoking film, it’s an attitude! It’s about rising to the challenge of life and turning lemons into champagne. -kriscarr.comHere's a little clip from Crazy Sexy Cancer:
Super Size Me follows filmmaker Morgan Spurlock on a 30 day journey in which he only eats McDonald's food. It documents the toll this takes on his health, not only in terms of weight gain but also what this food does to his cholesterol, his liver and his physical and psychological well being.
Check out a clip from the movie:
