Roger Ebert

“Here is a film that could save your life.”

“What every human being should do is eat a vegetarian diet based on whole foods. Period. That’s it. Animal protein is bad for you. Dairy is bad for you. Forget the ads: Milk and eggs are bad for you. Skim milk is no better, because it contains proportionately more animal protein. What you’re trying to avoid is dietary cholesterol. You also need to cut way down on salt and sugar, and run like hell from high fructose corn syrup.”

“The bottom line: I am convinced this message is true. A plant-based whole foods diet is healthy.”

Roger Ebert, in a review of the documentary Forks Over Knives at the Chicago Sun-Times.
