What The Health

I just a documentary type movie on Neflix, "What The Health". Very interesting documentary produced and funded by Joaquin Phoenix the actor who has been a vegetarian since the age of 3. It deals with the poison that we have been feeding our bodies for generations and I encourage that you watch it along with your family and friends. I am making a change in my diet starting tomorrow morning. If you do not have Neflix, you can go to whatthehealthfilm.com and watch it on your computer. It is about 1 1/2 hours long.

Let me know what you think after watching the movie.

Best Regards,

Lou

I don't know about you, but why seek answers from trained researchers who have made subjects like this their life's work when you can just watch yet another celebrity polemic?

The scientists make things way too complicated, and studying evidence is BORING. I'll take a good personal anecdote any day.

Besides, people are all carbon-copies of each other, and what ever works for Mr. Phoenix can certainly be applied 100% to any other human being on the planet with identical results.

Phoenix is a nut job and the doco was totally one sided and mostly bs

Both replies to "What the Health" attack the producer and his lifestyle. I have felt for many years that the increase in heart disease, cancer and diabetes is due to lifestyle and diet.This movie simply addresses this fact with some provocative arguments. It is not mostly BS. Many researchers and Drs. Will agree.Too much of our medical practices are for profit only, not for prevention.

Totally agree. The criticisms of the film "What the Health" are strictly ad hominem. I think these individuals didn't even watch the film. This is similar to the thinking that also dominates much of the so-called political discussion, nowadays.

Thanks Kuanyin. I have been getting a lot of resistance from my friends and family that do not want to look at the other side of the story.

Hi Lou, thanks for your review, I thought the film presented many provocative arguments for the thesis. There has to be root causes for the rise in cancer and heart disease satistics. I think the causes lie in our toxic environment and foods.

Hi Bill,

Thanks for your response. I agree with you that there has to be a root cause for the rise in cancer, diabetes and heart disease. The film has a lot of "food for thought" and I for one will be eliminating a lot of meat products from my diet.

Lou

Lets see..no meat, fish, chicken, turkey, eggs or dairy. organic meat is not good because because the cattle feed on plants that have atmospheric pollution...what does that say about the organic produce these idiots recommend..."one of the worst foods you can eat is cheese"...there are a lot of studies that say the hard cheeses are good for you and a good source of K2...this film belongs in the trash can with the rest of the garbage

"...a lot of studies that say hard cheeses are good for you..." Give me a break. If you really want a therapeutic amount of Vitamin K buy Vitamin Research Products' Ultra K2: each capsule has 10,000 mcg of K2. I take three of these a day. You would have to eat 180.0 3/4 oz. slices in order to get your 100% recommended daily value of 90mcg of Vitamin K. Maybe you could start your own-cheese eating contest to compete with Nathan's at Coney Island. Send me the video.

you take the caps..just recently a bunch of walmart and walgreens supplements did not contain what was on the label.. a problem that is rampant in the supp industry..I will eat the cheese with all the cofactors like the docs on Dr. Oz

Those of us that rely on supplements use only those companies who utilize USP mfg standards, contrary to the wild reports you are referring to there are good supplement companies. We don't buy supplements from Walmart or drugstores. There is no need on this blog to put anyone down, we are all trying to get better. Faith in whatever treatment path you take is needed for it to work.

USP means nothing...GMP means nothing..you just watched What The Health where products for humans that are inspected by both the USDA and FDA are unfit for consumption..do a little research dude...google Dr. Wolfe and the supplement industry where there is virtually no regulation...there are about 7 supplement mfg..everybody else slaps on a label..who do you think mfg Walmarts and Walgreens supps..the same contract mfg that make all the rest on the market.

There are good manufacturers of supplements, The pharma industry would love to destroy this industry and have been somewhat successful through the years, I know as I was involved in this industry for many years. I do admit that there are many bad eggs in the industry and need to be stopped. Do not refer to me as " Dude" I am a 78 year old man suffering with cancer just like you. You are rude and confrontational on this site which none of need. I have done research, lots of it and all the people you quote have a huge interest in promoting Big Pharma and the entire "Cancer Industry" which is a huge Profit based industry. There are supplements which have been proven helpful which threaten them.

I feel very sorry for those people that totally rely on a system that is based on drugs and ignores diet.
