Forks Over Knives: The Plant-Based Way to Health

The Plant-Based Way to Health

What if one simple change could save you from heart disease, diabetes, and cancer?

For decades, that question has fascinated a small circle of impassioned doctors and researchers, and now their life-changing research is making headlines in the hit documentary Forks Over Knives.

Their answer? Eat a whole-foods, plant-based diet.

Per their research, this could save your life.

This may overturn most of the diet advice you've heard, but the experts behind Forks Over Knives aren't afraid to make waves.

In his book Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease, Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn explained that digesting meat, dairy, and oils damages the lining of our blood vessels, causing heart disease, heart attack, or stroke.

In The China Study, Dr. Colin Campbell shows the evidence for how cancer and other diseases skyrocket when meat and dairy is part of the diet, and plummets when a traditional plant-based diet persists. 

And more and more experts are adding their voices to the cause: 

They know of nothing you can do for your health that matches the benefits of a plant-based diet.

Now, as Forks Over Knives is introducing more people than ever before to the plant-based way to health, this accessible guide provides the information you need to adopt and maintain a plant-based diet. Features include:
