Forks Over Knives: The Plant-Based Way to Healthby Gene Stone
Synopses & Reviews
What if one simple change could save you from heart disease, diabetes, and cancer?
For decades, that question has fascinated a small circle of impassioned doctors and researchers--and now, their life-changing research is making headlines in the hit documentary Forks Over Knives. Their answer? Eat a whole-foods, plant-based diet--it could save your life.
It may overturn most of the diet advice you've heard--but the experts behind Forks Over Knives aren't afraid to make waves. In his book Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease, Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn explained that eating meat, dairy, and oils injures the lining of our blood vessels, causing heart disease, heart attack, or stroke. In The China Study, Dr. Colin Campbell revealed how cancer and other diseases skyrocket when eating meat and dairy is the norm--and plummet when a traditional plant-based diet persists. And more and more experts are adding their voices to the cause: There is nothing else you can do for your health that can match the benefits of a plant-based diet.
Now, as Forks Over Knives is introducing more people than ever before to the plant-based way to health, this accessible guide provides the information you need to adopt and maintain a plant-based diet. Features include:
The official how-to companion to the new feature documentary Forks Over Knives—an accessible, practical guide to reaping the benefits of a whole-foods, plant-based diet, with 125 recipes.
Forks Over Knives, the new feature documentary opening in theatrical release in May 2011, examines the profound claim that most, if not all, of the degenerative diseases that afflict us can be controlled, or even reversed, by bypassing animal-based and processed foods. Now this official how-to companion gives everyone the tools to adopt and fully enjoy the benefits of the plant-based diet the film advocates. Readers learn the essential reasons this way of eating is good for us (and for animals and the environment), as well as more about the “faces” of Forks Over Knives, including Cornell scientist and The China Study author Dr. T. Colin Campbell, longtime Cleveland Clinic surgeon Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn (author of Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease), Dr. Neal Barnard, Dr. John McDougall, Rip Esselstyn (author of The Engine 2 Diet), and FarmSanctuary founder Gene Baur, among others.
125 recipes—covering breakfast (Blackberry Lemon Muffins), snacks and appetizers (Pea Guacamole), soups (Smoky Black Bean), salads (Mediterranean Quinoa), mains (Plant-Powered Polenta Pizza), sides (Sweet Potato Fries), and desserts (Raspberry Pear Crisp)—will put readers well along on the road to better health.
