With a record number of heart disease cases and out-of-control health-care costs in the U.S., what's a responsible eater to do? Go vegan, of course! According to Lee Fulkerson's doc, not only can most of our health crises be averted by moving to a "whole foods plant-based" diet, but ailments such as diabetes and cancer are best treated by changing our menu in lieu of relying on pills, injections or chemotherapy. Fulkerson's out to tweak the medical establishment, as well as offer dietary tips, and his film makes effective use of case studies and graphs to build a convincing, if inevitably simplified, argument for better living through fresh produce.
