(NaturalNews) America may boast some of the most advanced medical technology in the world, but the health of the American people continues to decline year by year, with ever-growing rates of degenerative diseases.

Approximately two-thirds of the population is overweight, and around half the people are taking at least one prescription drug, if not many more. Despite our country spending billions of dollars every year trying to control disease, three of America's leading causes of death remain heart disease, cancer and strokes. A huge majority of the rest of the population is suffering from degenerative disease, which is quickly rising. The number of major medical operations being performed has also been quickly growing, subsequently driving health care costs to monumental levels.

Nearly one out of every two of us will get cancer or heart disease and die from it, says the medical establishment. And starting in the year 2000, one out of every three children who are born after that year will develop diabetes -- a disease that for many sufferers is largely preventable with lifestyle changes. This is a quickly emerging health crisis, but it is preventable.

Why processed animal foods are killing us

FORKS OVER KNIVES is a new documentary that explores the idea that the majority of the degenerative diseases that are plaguing us can be avoided, handled or even reversed by rejecting processed foods, especially processed animal-based foods that are staples of the harmful "western diet." These include processed cheese, pasteurized milk and processed meat made with sodium nitrite and other unnatural chemicals and preservatives.

As this documentary reveals, highly esteemed nutritional researchers have compiled eye-opening information that proves we are getting sicker and more obese than our health care system can handle. Unfortunately, the conventional methods of dealing with disease often have harmful side effects and are ineffective for patients.

This is only beginning to be understood and accepted, perhaps because what these experts are saying does not conveniently support the multi-billion dollar food industries that profit from our not knowing much about the effects our food choices truly have on us.

There is hope: for every animal-based food product, there is a plant-based alternative

The good news is that the means to prevent and heal disease is right in front of us: it's in our food. Quite frankly, our food choices can either kill us (an ever-increasing number of studies say that they are) or pull us out of the disease process, heal us and put us back on track for lifelong health.

Distinguished doctors and nutritional researchers are all saying the same thing in different ways: processed animal products and processed foods seem to greatly contribute to diseases of nearly every type, and a plant-based, whole foods diet is not only good for our health, it's also curative of the very serious diseases we face.

In the process of tackling this idea, FORKS OVER KNIVES documents the incredible journeys of two innovative researchers, Dr. T. Colin Campbell and Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn.

A life-changing discovery

Dr. Campbell was a nutritional scientist at Cornell University who made it his mission in the late 1960's to supply many poor and malnourished developing countries with high quality animal protein. While he was in the Philippines, he realized that the wealthier children in the country - who were eating large amounts of processed animal-based proteins - were much more susceptible to liver cancer.

Dr. Esselstyn, head of the Breast Cancer Task Force at the world-renowned Cleveland Clinic and a top surgeon, discovered that the majority of the diseases he treated on a regular basis virtually did not exist in areas of the world that rarely consumed processed animal-based foods.

Campbell and Esselstyn didn't know one another at the time, but their revelations led them to oversee multiple revolutionary studies, one of which took place in China and is still among the most thorough health-related investigations ever undertaken.

Their outcome of all their research was a major and startling conclusion: degenerative diseases such as heart disease, type 2 diabetes and even many forms of cancer could almost always be prevented by the adoption of a whole foods, mostly plant-based diet. In some cases, these diseases could even be cured or reversed by this diet.

The work of Esselstyn and Campbell has remained mostly unknown to the public despite its significant implications for the world of natural healing.

Through rare archival footage of the personal journeys of two groundbreaking researchers in health, FORKS OVER KNIVES explores the idea of food as medicine while also examining why we don't know very important truths about diet and disease.

This profound documentary will not only convince you about the value of a plant-based diet consisting of whole foods, it could easily change your life in the process.
