What the Health – A must see documentary for all
What the Health is a documentary film that was released on Vimeo on March 16th. It’s the follow up film by Kip Andersen and Keegan Kuhn, the makers of Cowspiracy: The Sustainability Secret.
Promoted as “The Health Film That Health Organizations Don’t Want You To See“, this documentary delves deep into health issues directly linked to the meat and dairy industries, big pharma, major health organizations, and their collusion to keep the public in the dark on all facts, data and knowledge that could potential jeopardize their profits.
Shedding light on the economically-driven priorities of the healthcare and related industries, this film aims to enlighten and educate people on the tremendous impact of processed animal foods on personal health and society as a whole.
This film is a must see for anyone remotely concerned about their health and well being. It’s not always easy to watch, as it can conjure up emotions of betrayal and mistrust towards the very organizations and government agencies which we have relied on to act in the best interest of the public – sadly that has not been the case. But it also brings us hope. The age old adage is true: knowledge is powerful. Informing yourself is the first step towards making choices and changes in your every day life that will inevitably force industry to listen up and be accountable.
