A film about how the way we eat affects us and the planet
‘PLANEAT’ is a provocative challenge to our love of meat and dairy. Tracking the work of a group of scientists, doctors and environmentalists, the film forces us to confront the evidence that a heavily animal-based diet is bad for our health, the environment and the future of the planet.
The film features the ground-breaking work of Dr. T Colin Campbell in China exploring the link between diet and cancer, Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn Jr’s use of diet to treat heart disease patients, and Professor Gidon Eshel and Professor Peter Singer’s philosophies on how to feed an ever-burgeoning population in the midst of global warming.
With the help of some innovative chefs and farmers, we are shown how the problems we face today can be solved, without simply resorting to a diet of lentils and lettuce leaves.
