Where have we gone wrong? Why has the death rate from heart disease and cancer exploded in recent times? Why are the ice caps melting, the oceans dying and the forests being cut down as we produce the food necessary to support our burgeoning populations?
Against a backdrop of colorful and delicious food grown by organic farmers and prepared in the kitchens of world-famous chefs, Planeat for the first time brings together the ground-breaking studies of three prominent scientists who have made it their life’s work to answer these questions. Dr. T Colin Campbell in China by exploring the link between diet and disease, Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn’s use of nutrition to treat chronically ill heart disease patients, and Professor Gidon Eshel’s investigations into how our food choices contribute to global warming, wasteful land use and lifeless oceans.
And here the award-winning PLANEAT, which has been selected for film festivals around the world, shown in the English Houses of Parliament and endorsed by Sir Paul McCartney, inspires you to make the right food choices. Choices that can dramatically reduce your risk of heart disease and cancer, protect our environment and make our planet sustainable while celebrating the joys of food.
