In his groundbreaking 2004 book, The China Study, and in the recent popular documentary film Forks Over Knives, Dr. T. Colin Campbell and including the producer and writer of Forks Over Knives, this 95-minute film examines the political and economic factors that suppress information on the benefits of plant-based nutrition, while making the connections of this idea to larger issues such as medical practice, farming, and food deserts. The film’s story follows three people working to spread the word about one of the most important health breakthroughs of all time.

The filmmakers are using PlantPure Nation to create a broad grassroots movement. Members of these chapters will help plant seeds of change around the message of plant-based nutrition in their communities. One tool they will use to give people the experience of a whole-food, plant-based diet will be the same 10-day Jumpstart program featured in the film.

A companion to the documentary, The PlantPure Nation Cookbook, authored by Kim Campbell, includes more than 150 whole-food, plant-based recipes as well as a behind-the-scenes look at the film.

PlantPure Nation was filmed across the U.S. and features Steve Forbes Jr. (editor in chief, Forbes magazine), Dr. T. Colin Campbell (co-author, The China Study), Dr. Neal Barnard (founder and president, Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine), and Dr. Michael Greger (director of public health and animal agriculture, Humane Society of the United States) leading the list of world-renowned experts, doctors and authors who speak on the topic. The production team includes producer John Corry and writer Lee Fulkerson from the acclaimed documentary film Forks Over Knives.

The filmmakers hope to use PlantPure Nation to create broad grassroots movement. They are spearheading the formation of PlantPure Pods in cities and towns across N. America. Many have started in the Bay Area already. PlantPure Pod, San Jose, and Santa Clara County Activists for Animals will present this film and share more details about this inspirational movement, while leaving the audience filled with hope.
