Welcome to the third and last part of this 3-part article series. This series gives a summary of the important points the What the Health film argued. If you haven’t read Part 1 and Part 2, it is recommended you read it first before starting here.
We have known from Part 1 that Kip tried to find the link between diet and disease, and how carcinogenic meat foods are being suggested as a healthy diet by health organizations. In Part 2, Kip discovered that these health organizations have deceived us with their corruption. Money talks. When you are getting funds from big meat industries and even some pharmaceutical companies, it’s now obvious why the only thing they do is try and treat the disease and not prevent it. Basically, the more people patronizing these industries, the more these industries can prosper. And where do these health organizations get their money again? That’s right, from the meat, dairy and poultry industries and pharmaceutical companies. It’s a disgusting cycle of green that people should be aware of.
Now comes a good solution and it’s something that we can all agree. The solution is to go entirely with a plant-based diet. Not only is it proven to be a healthier diet, we are also leaving the animals to live freely. This does so many things on different levels and it also benefits our environment making it more sustainable.
What did the film say about going on a plant-based diet?
- All protein is initially made by plants
- Plants are loaded with protein
- Most Americans get less than half of the fiber they need
- The largest, strongest terrestrial animals on the planet are all herbivores
- Vitamin intake and overall nutrition go up on a plant-based diet from a meat-based diet
- Humans closest living relatives are chimpanzees, whom get 97% of their calories from plants
- You can stop and reverse heart disease with plant-based diets
- When people adopt a fully plant-based diet their cholesterol levels plummet within a few days
- When people adopt a fully plant-based diet blood pressure comes down
- Crohn’s disease & multiple sclerosis remission rates best achieved from plant-based diet
- David carter: former NFL defensive lineman has become stronger after adopting a plant-based lifestyle
- Timothy Shieff: World champion Freerunner and Ninja Warrior became more agile and stronger than ever after shifting to a plant-based lifestyle
- Mu Jin Han: ageless drug free athlete says he doesn’t need drugs to achieve a stronger body, plants help him achieve this.
- Tia blanco: professional surfer and surfing world champion is powered by a plant-based, vegan diet.
- Rich roll: ultra-endurance athlete author, new found strength and endurance from plants.
If this documentary managed to convince you that you need to eat less meat and dairy then that’s great. If that translates into you changing your entire lifestyle, preparing more meals at home and eating more green plant food, then What the Health managed to get its message across. However, even if we strongly support the vegan diet, we would also not force you to live with a diet that doesn’t work best for you. Try going vegan and see if it works. You can also do the same with any kind of diet such as paleo or keto. Whatever works for you is good. But don’t think that cutting out fat is the answer. Good fat foods like avocados, nuts, seeds, and olive oil are extremely nutritious foods that fuel your body and send a satisfaction signal to your brain.
