Still questioning yourself about the benefits of reducing your meat consumption and understanding the benefits of plant-based diets? These documentaries surely come handy if are not sure about your dietary changes.
Many of us have been questioning why some of our friends were suddenly moving towards becoming gluten-free, dairy-free, getting vegan, or vegetarian, or just wondering if it is a passing trend or a necessary long-term change we all need to adopt to protect and save our planet.
We recently came across different documentaries that helped us get more insight and actually realize that this diet or opposition between animals or plants was leading for a larger question towards the sustainability of our planet as our diet choices are affecting land use, water use, water pollution or air pollution for the bigger picture.

Forks over Knives (2011)
This documentary examines the profound claim that most, if not all, of the chronic diseases that afflict us, can be controlled or even reversed by rejecting animal-based and processed foods.
The major storyline traces the personal journeys of Dr. T. Colin Campbell, a nutritional biochemist from Cornell University, and Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn, a former top surgeon at the world-renowned Cleveland Clinic. On separate paths, their discoveries and groundbreaking research led them to the same startling conclusion: Chronic diseases including heart disease and type 2 diabetes can almost always be prevented—and in many cases reversed—by adopting a whole-food, plant-based diet.
The idea of food as medicine is put to the test. The film follows everyday Americans with chronic conditions as they seek to reduce their dependence on medications and learn to use a whole-food, plant-based diet to regain control over their health and their lives.
