After watching Food, Inc. and King Corn (last year? can’t remember when), I wanted to become a vegetarian. I did begin eating less meat, but I still eat the occasional chicken sandwich or hamburger.

I just watched Forks over Knives. OK, now I really want to become a full-fledged vegetarian. This documentary features the research of a nutritional biochemist and a surgeon (whose expertise is in heart disease and breast cancer). Their research results are astounding. They, along with other doctors, have found direct correlations between diet and degenerative diseases. They believe that hypertension, diabetes, cancer, etc. can be kept in check or even reversed by staying away from animal-based (i.e., meat and dairy) and processed foods.

Dairy is my favorite food group, so I am going to have a tough time staying away from dairy. But I am seriously going to try! If you have been thinking about eating healthier and need some motivation, watch this film!
