You Need to Watch This!

If you haven't seen this 2011 documentary, I highly encourage you to do so.  Forks Over Knives is an amazing documentary with wonderful studies and comparisons over the past 100 years on how the newly adapted "Western Diet" is linked to the increase in cancers, diabetes, heart disease and other chronic and life threatening diseases.

The hubs and I watched it on Netflix this past week, and it's a real eye opener on how what we put in our bodies can either have a positive or negative effect on our health and well-being.  To this day, it amazes me that there is all this information out there, yet people still live to eat instead of eating to LIVE!!

Why is it we don't change our diets until something happens to us.  So many people not only avoid the truth about foods, they are in denial themselves about what they put in their bodies, and how they themselves are partial responsible for the diseases being able to rule their life.  

This documentary, as well as a documentary I reviewed last year called Food Matters, are definitely something I feel every American needs to watch.  Both stress an d repeat Hippocrates quote - "Let Thy Food Be Thy Medicine".  Is yours?
