Lately I’ve been getting an influx of calls and emails from worried clients who watched the Netflix documentary, What the Health. People are concerned – and for good reason. One client emailed, “Well now what? Apparently, I’ve been doing everything wrong!” Another client made an appointment for his entire family (wife and 2 daughters) wanting me to teach them all how to become vegans.
I watched the film and to be perfectly honest, it wasn’t easy for me to get through it. I seriously wanted to turn it off after the first 5 minutes, but felt compelled to keep watching. I went back and forth from anger to laughter. Not because I don’t believe in the health benefits of a plant-based diet. I do! My issue was with the fear-mongering and misinformation presented by the film-maker.
To learn more, read this excellent review of the documentary written by one of my dietitian colleagues who just so happens to be a vegan.
