you can watch it on On-Demand.

I'm watching it right now.

meat and dairy and processed foods are killing us - the western diet does more damage to our body and the health care system than anything else

Watched it last week, having just read Britt's milk thread too. It made for some significant changes for me. I eliminated meat from my diet 24 years ago. I can do the rest now.

rock on mama. i've stopped purchasing all dairy but will still eat things made by others (or when i'm out) made with dairy in them. it's rare though

did you watch food inc?

another GREAT must see is Eating http://www.amazon.co...16480589&sr=8-1

I did watch Food, Inc. and will check out the other. Thanks. I had to agree with my older child not to drag her down this path ( my guys will eat whatever I put in front of them) so am buying some dairy, but less, and have cut down my own intake. The "when out/ made by others" plan is how I first cut meat out so that sounds like a good plan for dairy and eggs too.

sadly I had advance screening tix to this which included a discussion with the filmakers... while I won't pretend to adhere to all of this - I am certainly engaged by the conversation.

Silly question, but is there footage of animals being killed or abused in this movie?

I'd like a heads up should I decide to watch it.

Thanks!

Georgi, not that I recall. It is more from a health perspective--how a plant-based whole foods diet is linked to lower incidences of disease-- and not in-your-face chicken houses and slaughterhouses.

Ooh good. I'd be depressed for days if I saw slaughterhouses. :(

(Just thinking about slaughterhouses makes me depressed, let alone seeing them.)

No abuse, georgi. the only abuse revealed is the abuse meat and dairy does to the human body.

sad, really. we abuse and kill animals only so the meat we take from them can abuse and kill us. i guess that is karma, isn't it?

Just saw it. Great documentary. Later in the evening, I was in the supermarket, and it struck me how 95% of the food in there, aisle after aisle, is just poison. Best bet is to shop at the farm stand or the green grocery marketplace.

it's time for Eddie to change things up a bit. I'm 20lbs overweight, on Cholesterol meds, doc is thinking about putting me on high BP meds too. I'm convinced dietary changes can fix this.

All I have to do is ignore the 100lbs of meat leftover from catering in my freezers. LOL.

China,

Thank you so much for this thread! Just watched it and am mooo-ved. ;)
Seriously.

Wow. What an eye opener. I also watched 'Food Matters" before this and am feeling quite inspired by both of these films.

((JP being away and me watching this stuff)) Note: Nothing to so with his views....

great film! just watched it on netflix last night. very convincing info for a plant based diet.

i stopped eating meat after thanksgiving to try to lower my cholesterol. the change is going well so far. i'm not looking to lose weight - just lower my cholesterol and live healthier with less guilt (i've seen the slaughter house movies). i'm concerned about christmas and all the food that everyone forces down your throat!

nobody forces it down your throat - make decisions based on health and conscience not pressure. Remember it's okay to "just say no." :lol: watch all the vids in the "transitioning to vegetarianism" thread before you go to christmas dinner--it will help with your resolve to stay meat free

my bro went veg (except fish), he dropped his cholesterol 40 points and lost 23 pounds, my ex has now been on a veg diet for 3 months, lost 10 pounds and dropped cholesterol 22 points.

meat and dairy is not healthy - that is a lie perpetuated by powerful industries and a govt controlled by powerful industries.

go veg for you, the environment, and for the animals :smile:

according to the report i read yesterday, davey jones was a strict vegetarian without an ounce of fat on his body. he exercised daily. genetics play a role for sure.

it's possible that jones lived longer due to his healthy lifestyle. the evidence seems to show that your odds are better but it's all a crap-shoot in the end.
