FORKS OVER KNIVES examines the claim that most; if not all; of the so-called "diseases of affluence" that afflict us can be controlled; or even reversed; by rejecting our present menu of animal-based and processed foods.
It follows the stories of several patients, particularly heart-disease patients, who were at a loss to find conventional, medical treatment. They grew progressively less healthy, and were facing extreme surgeries that were only marginally able to help them live.
This documentary follows these patients as they use their forks (diet) to solve health issues better than knives (surgery). It's pretty incredible, and all of the examples are extreme.
Suffice it to say, some of the lifestyle changes are extreme as well, and would be difficult for anyone to do without a lot of support. But it's inspiring to see the very real impact that diet can have on the body, and it makes us look more closely at how we can make changes that will shift the direction of our own health.
