Description
This companion volume to Lee Fulkerson's 2011 documentary film Forks Over Knives further explains that film's basic tenet: changing away from a diet of meat, dairy, and processed foods to one based on whole foods and plants could spare almost everyone from heart disease, diabetes, and cancer. Citing the research and published recommendations of physician Caldwell Esselstyn (Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease) and nutritional biochemist Colin Campbell (The China Study), the book investigates how eating meat, dairy, and oils injures the lining of our blood vessels, causing heart disease, heart attack, and stroke, and how rates of cancer and other diseases skyrocket in a country where eating meat and dairy is the norm, but plummet where a traditional plant-based diet persists. Here too are insights from doctors Neal Barnard and John McDougall and health advocate Rip Esselstyn (The Engine 2 Diet); success stories from converts to plant-based eating; a helpful primer on crafting a healthy diet rich in unprocessed fruits, vegetables, legumes, and whole grains; and 125 recipes like Blueberry Oat Breakfast Muffins, Sunny Orange Yam Bisque, Garlic Rosemary Polenta, and Raspberry-Pear Crisp.

"I [have] put a lot of my patients on this program and for a reason. I have seen incredible results time and again."óMehmet Oz
