I love watching food documentaries.  I'm patiently awaiting for the latest to hit the Charleston area...hmmmmm not exactly a hot market area for healthy topics?  A long wait?  Sad commentary!

FORKS OVER KNIVES / read part of the movie synopsis:

"Two out of every three of us are overweight. Cases of diabetes are exploding, especially amongst our younger population. About half of us are taking at least one prescription drug. Major medical operations have become routine, helping to drive health care costs to astronomical levels. Heart disease, cancer and stroke are the country’s three leading causes of death, even though billions are spent each year to “battle” these very conditions. Millions suffer from a host of other degenerative diseases.
Could it be there’s a single solution to all of these problems? A solution so comprehensive but so utterly straightforward, that it’s mind-boggling that more of us haven’t taken it seriously?
FORKS OVER KNIVES examines the profound claim that most, if not all, of the so-called “diseases of affluence” that afflict us can be controlled, or even reversed, by rejecting our present menu of animal-based and processed foods. The major storyline in the film traces the personal journeys of a pair of pioneering yet under-appreciated researchers, Dr. T. Colin Campbell and Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn."

I've heard so much about this documentary and really want to watch it, but my wait will be longer than yours as I live in the U.K.

Well let's keep in touch and compare notes. The south, as you may well know, is know for fried foods. I'm thinking they may not be the most progressive when it comes to "changing lifestyles".

Thanks for your comment. :)
