Despite new advances in medical technology, and U.S. healthcare costs exceeding that of other countries, Americans are sicker than ever before. It's estimated that 80% of adults are overweight, and more than 70% of office visits involve prescription drug therapy.
Tens of thousands of patients die every year due to unintentional drug overdose, drug interactions, or from the side effects from these drugs. The majority of today's office visits reflect lifestyle driven diseases such as heart disease, cancer, and diabetes. Tragically, these degenerative diseases are the leading cause of death, yet can largely be prevented through dietary excellence.
Forks Over Knives offers a solution to our nation's health care crises, although most people are unwilling to take the message seriously. We have become so addicted to the rich, high-fat and heavily processed American diet, that we would rather risk not only our own life, but also our children's lives, before being motivated enough to make any changes. Most of us wait until we have a major heart attack before we acknowledge our failing health, and even then, the majority of people will choose risky drugs and procedures over changing their diet. Sadly though, many patients aren't even aware they have heart disease until they suffer a fatal heart attack.
Forks Over Knives features our nation's leading nutritional experts, scientists, top surgeons, researchers and plant-based physicians who have conducted many groundbreaking studies over the past 30+ years. Years of dedicated research has led them to the same 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." Their revolutionary work remains relatively unknown to the public, despite the profound significance of their discoveries.
