For more than 2,800 years, the concept of eating plants in their whole-food form has struggled to be heard and adopted as a way of life. However, recent evidence shows that more than ever a plant-based diet is not something to be ignored. In fact, eating a plant-based diet has become an urgent matter from several perspectives. Not only will it improve your health — and the evidence behind this claim is now overwhelming — but it will also dramatically reduce health care costs, as well as reduce violence to our environment and to other sentient beings.

What can save America is a plant-based diet, which will help individuals recover their good health, and which in turn will set our health care system right (as well as our economy). However, for this plant-based diet to take hold, the public must be endowed with nutritional literacy, the kind of knowledge that is portrayed in the new documentary, “Forks Over Knives.”

Please see “Forks Over Knives.” It could transform your life in ways you never thought possible. And it may just help start the seismic revolution in health care this country so badly needs.

Health-e-Solutions comment: We have not yet seen this movie, but several people have recommended it to us. Please check out the Forks Over Knives website to see if it is showing at a theatre near you. While it does not appear to focus on alkalinity, it does help get the word out about the validity of plant-based diets and their impact on “lifestyle” and “affluence” diseases.
