‘WHAT THE HEALTH’: Five Stars (Out of Five)
The new highly anticipated documentary from Kip Anderson and Keegan Kuhn; the two filmmakers that also brought us the critically acclaimed environmental doc ‘COWSPIRACY: THE SUSTAINABILITY SECRET’ (which is immensely popular with vegans). Anderson and Kuhn both once again wrote, produced and directed the film. This time they set out to prove how directly responsible meat and dairy consumption is for most of the major health problems that people have today. It’s been advertised as “The Health Film That Health Organizations Don’t Want You To See”. The movie was funded through a successful Indiegogo campaign, where the filmmakers raised over $235,000. I think it’s definitely a film that everyone needs to see, I loved it!
Director Kip Anderson stars in and narrates the film, as he investigates his main thesis; that meat and dairy consumption has caused nearly all of the major health problems in people (throughout modern history). He interviews multiple physicians, medical officers, nutritionists and other health experts about the subject. He continuously tries to find out why the truth has been hidden from the public for so long (and big business, of course, plays a major part in it). Anderson also further investigates the many benefits of a vegan diet, as he did in his last movie, and he informs the viewer of how it can help us all avoid these many serious health concerns.
The movie is very educational and passionate, but it also doesn’t overly force it’s vegan message on the viewers. I knew it was going that way, from the beginning, but it very rationally (and quite logically) comes to that conclusion. Like’COWSPIRACY’, it never focuses too much on animal cruelty (there’s actually none of that in this film). It stays completely focused on the horrendous health concerns with having an animal product diet. ‘COWSPIRACY’ focused on the horrible environmental damages due to that poor diet choice, and this film focuses (almost) solely on the health concerns of it (and it does a beautiful job). It’s one of the best documentaries I’ve ever seen!
