Watch PlantWise: A Plant-Based Diet Documentary

PlantWise follows the inspiring stories of six people, each struggling with debilitating health conditions. They learn that the standard American diet — high in fat, sugar and salt and low in fiber and nutrients — is the culprit behind many chronic illnesses.

With hope, they discover this epidemic of diseases — heart disease, Type 2 diabetes, obesity, and high blood pressure — may be reversible. By embracing the benefits of a whole-food, plant-based diet, they’re able to improve or reverse their chronic conditions and find renewed energy and vitality. Weaving together personal stories and evidence-based science, PlantWise puts forward an inspiring message of hope.
