What if our country's most debilitating diseases could be prevented by simply changing the way we eat? The groundbreaking new feature film Forks Over Knives presents compelling evidence suggesting that diseases like heart disease and diabetes may be prevented - and in many cases reversed - through a whole food plant-based diet. You can check out the film at several pre-screening events in select cities, listed below. The movie features Caldwell Esselstyn Jr. M.D., author of Reversing Heart Disease opens in a new tab and T. Colin Campbell, PhD, author of The China Study opens in a new tab - both members of the Whole Foods Market medical advisory board. Our Health Starts Here partner Rip Esselstyn, author of the Engine 2 Diet opens in a new tab, makes an appearance as well.
