Like everyone we watch movies while we are out here on the cruising circuit, we all have different systems and although we have a very smart Sony TV with a car DVD player and a Bose surround system we mostly juts rip everything onto a USB Stick (or Key) and watch them via the Sony and Bose system. We had an obscure list of movies on one drive and Suzanne’s rule is watch them in alphabetical order and then trash and move on if they are rubbish, which most are.


Well, earlier this week we came across one called “Forks over Knives” – if you only watch one movie this year make sure it is this one. OK it’s not a movie – it’s a Michael Moore type Docufilm without the confrontational aspect but it still points fingers at the food industry and it really makes you think. What is particularly impressive is the science and studies done over decades that back up the claims – OK we all know too much of most things may not be good for you, but this movie will make you more aware of what we all eat.


If you have any concerns over heart disease, cancer, diabetes, osteoporosis or arthritis to name a few, then watch this movie, even if you just want to lose a couple of kilos/pounds. It will really make you think and all you need to do is just modify the ratios of what you already eat now, just reduce some and increase others.


The staggering thing is you can reverse the damage or any conditions you may already have – in the movie people give up their meds and get better – even diabetes, pancreases started working again and coronary arteries that were becoming clogged became fully open again.


Yea, I know what you are thinking – Oh Shit – He’s gone all hippy with sandals and candles shouting, “Alleluia – Brother, I believe”, but it’s not like that, it’s a Docufilm with very good empirical evidence for their claims – and you will know it makes sense.


Anyway it’s up on YouTube so watch it and make up your own mind – “Alleluia Brother” – Oops sorry ! _ We watched like a 2 hour movie – YouTube seems to have some hikacked versions which are total crap  – if you want a copy let us know and I could email it – it’s just less than 1Mb
