Doc: Eating

This is a sleeper doc.  It's not visually pleasing and its rather dry delivery has caused me to fall asleep during more than one viewing.  However, just when you think it's over, it's not!  This doc hits you on all fronts in a non-invasive way - just the facts and the facts are convincing enough.

Eating starts out by covering three doctors, each of which admittedly followed the Standard American Diet (SAD) only to be diagnosed with either heart disease or cancer.  Each rejected prescribed conventional treatment (surgery, drugs, chemo) and adopted a plant-based diet instead.  I won't spoil the outcome for you.

This doc then gets into the politics involved in nutrition, environmental waste caused by SAD, the cost of food, animal abuse and cruelty resulting in the increase in the spread of infectious diseases.

There are the typical, familiar faces contributing to this doc: Esselstyn, McDougal and Gerson.

I wouldn't go out of my way to see this, but there's something about it that has me watching it over and over out of fear from missing key information.  If given the opportunity, check it out.
