So last night I went to see PLANEAT at the West Shore Unitarian Universalist Church, hosted by the West Shore Vegetarian Group.  I will say that it was pretty cool watching a movie projected onto a church wall, while seated in a cushioned pew.  Definitely a first for me since I am seldom in a church.  But over all, a very neat experience.  And I will say for once, everyone was silent (I hate people who talk during a movie)!  I only mention this because this same group is going to host another documentary at the same church very soon, which I will blog about later.

Anyway, lets talk about PLANEAT!  Very good documentary proposing a vegetarian diet to combat heart disease instead of the procedural heart and bypass surgeries.  Guest star of this doc is Dr. T. Colin Campbell, author of The China Study (a worthwhile read), also staring the Cleveland Clinic's very own, Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn.
While this doc doesn't go into great detail about some of the recommendations made, like not consuming oils, it is a good starting point for further research if you or someone you know is concerned about or is suffering from heart disease.

This doc also takes a look at the carbon footprints of various American diets.
