What Do We Say to Death?

If you’re a fan of Game of Thrones (the books or the show), you know the answer to this.

That’s right. Not today.

A few days ago I was in the mood to watch a documentary… so we ended up watching Fed Up via Netflix. It was quite the eye opener. Due to a lot of dietary restrictions, we already avoid processed foods so this didn’t turn into an immediate call-to-action in our home, but it was still quite enlightening and I recommend the video to anyone who is interested in making healthy food choices.

Last night I was in the mood for another documentary, and this time, we went with Forks Over Knives. Oh. My. Oh. No. What did I just unleash on my family? Knowledge is power, and the knowledge about healthy eating has been out (and heavily studied) for more than thirty years. The documentary is excellent, and was earth-shattering for us. Earth. Shattering.

If you have Netflix, definitely give these two documentaries a go… they are very well worth watching. And if you do not have Netflix, here is a related video freely available to watch on YouTube: Uprooting the Leading Causes of Death – presented by Michael Greger, MD. This presentation is an hour long, but it is a must-watch. If nothing else, give it a chance for the first ten minutes and see what you think.

In relation to these documentaries, I am now reading The China Study which is referenced often during Forks Over Knives. If you’d like to check this out, it’s available to read via Scribd (click here for a free 2 month trial).
