Chow Down is a documentary that follows three people diagnosed with chronic illnesses.
Each person opted to change their diet to a plant-based diet and forgo surgeries and pills to help reverse their illnesses.
The two men in the documentary have heart disease and the woman has Type 2 Diabetes.
Dr. T. Colin Campbell, author of The China Study, states “Nutrition controls the expression of genes.”
Just because your father, grand-father, great-grand father died from a heart attack does not mean you will have the same thing happen to you.
Nutrition is the key!
I recommend that you check out this documentary and share it with your family, friends and anyone you know who will benefit from viewing this documentary.
Short Summary of the Film
Root for Charles, John, and Garnet as they try to buck the system of pills and procedures and outfox their heart disease and diabetes. When their doctors tell them that they can’t get better, our intrepid trio tells the doctors to think again. With lighthearted animation, piercing expert interviews and a feisty attitude, Chow Down is the moving story of the success you can achieve when you rewrite the recipe for a healthy life. ~Julia Grayer

Yet another piece of informative article from your side. What I have been expecting the current trend amongst people is to have resort to veggies and to do plenty of yoga, and this too has proved to be fruitful.
What you shared is new to me and I'm feeling more well informed and if this documentary was out from before maybe I should try to know more about what's new in the health sector. I support the green campaign and it was a pleasure reading a post which conveys the importance of plant-based diets.
