If you’ve been following my blog for a while, you’ve probably heard me talk about Dr. T. Colin Campbell and/or the documentary Forks Over Knives (FOK). The research that Dr. Campbell has done, as well as the information shown in the documentary FOK is mind blowing, and has changed my life in many different ways.
Today, I wanted to do a thorough review on the documentary and hopefully convince you to check it out for yourself! Forks Over Knives is essentially a documentary that is centered around the research done on the connection between animal protein and cancer growth. Dr. Campbell began this research during The China Study. Lots of research has been done over the years on this topic, and FOK puts it all into a very easy to follow documentary. Along with presenting the research in easy to understand words, pictures, and interviews the documentary follows several individuals who are suffering with chronic diseases.
About a month ago, I heard about the P-POD Conference, a plant-based prevention of disease conference being held in Raleigh, NC. I immediately knew I need to go. I started looking at the speakers who would be speaking, and that just made me even more excited. If you know anything about plant-based nutrition, you know Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn. He was going to be one of the main speakers there, and that just confirmed I needed to be there.
On Thursday after my last class of the day, I headed down the mountain. I live close to Raleigh, so I just stayed at home and drove back and forth each day for the conference. It was great being home for a few days, because I got to snuggle with our pup Toby and see my family.
