After watching the movie, "Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead," and starting out "prediabetic," morbidly obese, and some ill health indicators from blood chemistries for future heart disease, I began at 205 lb last October drinking solely freshly juiced fruits and vegetables. After about a pound a day of weight loss into January, I started researching what I would do after the juicing and read the book, "The China Study," which led me to the book "The 80/10/10 Diet." I have found everything this film talks about to be "my" truth from experience. I have experimented a little and found that a meat meal causes me constipation and several days of mental and physical tiredness. I think I have finished testing the truth of this movie. I am continuing to lose weight and have gone from a BMI of morbid obesity to merely overweight! My goal is the BMI rating of normal! I have about 35 pounds to go to get there. My energy level, if I stay away from my past meals, is extremely high and I have a sense of well being. This is a wonderful film and one I hope someone will buy and post here so I can get it to watch to reinforce whenever I waver in my design to get past the age where my mother and sisters died, i.e., 70 of stroke. I am 67 and I want to reach the age of my great-grandmother, i.e., 96 (if not more)!

Oh, my arthritis pain disappears whenever I stay clear of overt fat and meat.

And, as to chicken, another film I watched, and I don't remember which one, tested modern-day chicken that is out of factory warehouses. This chicken is higher in fat ounce for ounce than pork or beef!

A very interesting and informative video, definitely worth a look.

Yes, there is a lot of stuff here leading towards a vegan lifestyle which the critics have enjoyed bashing. I interpret this documentary that maybe we should eat less meat, I do not plan to cut it out entirely.

I have seen the ideas presented here in other places So I believe there is truth to the information. It is not just fat people who have heart and health problems.

The government has been presenting food guidelines for as long as I can remember, no doubt influenced by the farm lobby. One of the more hilarious commercials I have seen was touting pork as "the other white meat", as if we would somehow equate it to chicken which is totally absurd. I love bacon and ham but pork is one of the nastiest, fatty meats available. Please do not try and make me think it's chicken.

Health care is a business and healthy people are not good business. Big pharmaceutical loves your dollars. The doctor can give you a pill for everything. I would personally rather give my money to the grocery store and produce sellers.
