What has happened to us? Despite the most advanced medical technology in the world, we are sicker than ever by nearly every measure.
Two out of every three of us are overweight. Cases of diabetes are exploding, especially amongst our younger population. About half of us are taking at least one prescription drug. Major medical operations have become routine, helping to drive health care costs to astronomical levels. Heart disease, cancer and stroke are the country's three leading causes of death, even though billions are spent each year to "battle" these very conditions. Millions suffer from a host of other degenerative diseases.
Could it be there's a single solution to all of these problems? A solution so comprehensive but so utterly straightforward, that it's mind-boggling that more of us haven't taken it seriously?
FORKS OVER KNIVES
examines the profound claim that most, if not all, of the so-called "diseases of affluence" that afflict us can be controlled, or even reversed, by rejecting our present menu of animal-based and processed foods. The major storyline in the film traces the personal journeys of a pair of pioneering yet under-appreciated researchers, Dr. T. Colin Campbell and Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn.
Dr. Campbell, a nutritional scientist at Cornell University, was concerned in the late 1960's with producing "high quality" animal protein to bring to the poor and malnourished areas of the third world. While in the Philippines, he made a life-changing discovery: the country's wealthier children, who were consuming relatively high amounts of animal-based foods, were much more likely to get liver cancer. Dr. Esselstyn, a top surgeon and head of the Breast Cancer Task Force at the world-renowned Cleveland Clinic, found that many of the diseases he routinely treated were virtually unknown in parts of the world where animal-based foods were rarely consumed.
These discoveries inspired Campbell and Esselstyn, who didn't know each other yet, to conduct several groundbreaking studies. One of them took place in China and is still among the most comprehensive health-related investigations ever undertaken. Their research led them to a startling conclusion: degenerative diseases like heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and even several forms of cancer, could almost always be prevented - and in many cases reversed - by adopting a whole foods, plant-based diet. Despite the profound implications of their findings, their work has remained relatively unknown to the public. The filmmakers travel with Drs. Campbell and Esselstyn on their separate but similar paths, from their childhood farms where they both produced "nature's perfect food"; to China and Cleveland, where they explored ideas that challenged the established thinking and shook their own core beliefs.
The idea of food as medicine is put to the test. Throughout the film, cameras follow "reality patients" who have chronic conditions from heart disease to diabetes. Doctors teach these patients how to adopt a whole foods plant-based diet as the primary approach to treat their ailments - while the challenges and triumphs of their journeys are revealed.
FORKS OVER KNIVES utilizes state of the art 3-D graphics and rare archival footage. The film features leading experts on health, examines the question "why we don't know", and tackles the issue of diet and disease in a way that will have people talking for years.
FORKS OVER KNIVES was filmed all over the U.S., in Canada and China.

|2016 Obama's America
Lowest new price: $10.32
Lowest used price: $11.49
List price: $19.98
Brand: Lions Gate
Immersed in exotic locales across four continents, best selling author Dinesh D'Souza races against time to find answers to Obama's past and reveal where America will be in 2016. During this journey he discovers how Hope and Change became radically misunderstood, and identifies new flashpoints for hot wars in mankind's greatest struggle. The journey moves quickly over the arc of the old colonial empires, into America's empire of liberty, and we see the unfolding realignment of nations and the shape of the global future.
Watching Dinesh D'Souza's 2016: Obama's America in the wake of the 2012 U.S. presidential election is an interesting experience. Since the film was clearly produced and released (in July '12) with the intention of convincing Americans not to reelect Barack Obama, does the fact that he won anyway render it irrelevant? Or is it a good thing that now that Obama will remain in the White House, we'll have a chance to see if D'Souza's dire predictions about the havoc the president will wreak on the nation (cutting the military, raising taxes, continuing to ignore Iran's nuclear potential, spending money irresponsibly, and so on) will come true? It's the filmmaker's contention that Obama's dreams, aspirations, and values come from his father; although he barely knew Barack Obama Sr., his mother passed on his influence--influence that was largely misguided, as the elder Obama was a radical anti-colonialist whose son has spent his life trying to "become worthy of his father's love… the love he never got." D'Souza illustrates his thesis by way of reenactments, interviews (including plenty of face time for himself), footage from visits to Kenya (Obama Sr.'s native country) and Indonesia (where the president briefly lived with his mother and stepfather), and excerpts from Obama's first book, Dreams from My Father, read by the president himself. He does his case no favors by not talking to anyone with a differing point of view; at the same time, he tends to prod those he does interview into giving the answers that he wants to hear ("Do you see Israel as a little colonial power in the Middle East?" is typical), and his references to "founding fathers" of Obama's alleged radicalism (William Ayers, the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, et al.) are old and tired. About an hour into the story, having declared the new brand of anti-colonialism (unlike the older kind, which helped India, D'Souza's own homeland, rid itself of the British) to be "anti-capitalist (and) anti-Christian," he declares that Obama "possesses a Third World, anti-American view." At that point, pretty much all pretense of objectivity is abandoned; this is where the true believers will move closer and turn up the volume, while others will turn off their TVs in disgust. That's unfortunate, as the end result will be that those predisposed to mistrust Obama will find nothing to soften their view here; neither will those who think it's nothing but hateful, divisive nonsense. --Sam Graham
|Inequality for All
Lowest new price: $15.50
List price: $24.98
A passionate argument on behalf of the middle class, Inequality for All features Robert Reich–professor, best-selling author, and Clinton cabinet member–as he demonstrates how the widening income gap has a devastating impact on the American economy. The film is an intimate portrait of a man whose lifelong goal remains protecting those who are unable to protect themselves. Through his singular perspective, Reich explains how the massive consolidation of wealth by a precious few threatens the viability of the American workforce and the foundation of democracy itself. In this Inconvenient Truth for the economy, Reich uses humor and a wide array of facts to explain how the issue of economic inequality affects each and every one of us.
