    Forks Over Knives

    Hi folks,

    I just wanted to mention again about the great movie Forks Over Knives. If you would like to help motivate a friend to adopt a healthier lifestyle, this often does the trick. I know a couple people who were quite dubious of the whole idea of improving their health with our diet. They finally saw the movie, and then bought 4 more copies of the DVD, to give to friends and family!

    Forks symbolizes food, and knives symbolizes surgery and drugs. The movie is quite convincing that food as medicine, is the most effective way to regain our health, and overcome heart disease, diabetes, hypertension, cancer risk and dimentia risk.

    Netflix carries it, as well as the forks over knives website.

    Best regards, EngineerGuy

    You can also see the movie Chow Down on Netflix and I think it might also be free on HULU.
