Description:  “Directed by Mayank Jain and conceptualized by Shri Jai Kishan ‘JK’ Jhaver, this science-based film raises issues about the role of poor lifestyle—especially improper eating habits—in the spread of chronic diseases like cancer, cardio vascular diseases, diabetes, kidney disorders, neurological problems etc. The prevalent western diet results in consumption of huge amounts of animal proteins, dietary cholesterol, saturated fats and harmful chemicals which play a key role in the spread of life-threatening disorders. This diet, unlike a whole-foods-plant-based diet, lacks ‘good-health-agents’ like dietary fiber, anti-oxidants and phyto-nutrients. Owing to higher intake of animal-based food and fast foods, there is an abnormally high increase in the spread of colorectal cancers, heart problems, kidney failures and type-2 diabetes throughout the world. The film gives plenty of evidence to portray the negative influence of bad diets to human health—by drawing heavily from studies carried out by topmost international medical institutions. The data shows conclusively that some of the most dangerous chronic diseases could not only be controlled but even reversed with help of a low-fat-whole-foods-plant-based diet.”
