NOTES FROM THE FILMMAKERS
Half of all adults in the U.S. struggle with chronic health conditions. Despite countless dollars spent on medical research and drugs to improve our health, more Americans are disabled and dying from chronic disease than ever before.
Featuring leading medical experts and researchers, Eating You Alive takes a scientific look at the reasons we’re so sick, who’s responsible for feeding us the wrong information, and how we can use whole-food, plant-based nutrition to take control of our health—one bite at a time.
Advocates for this nutritional approach to wellness include Suzy Amis Cameron, James Cameron, Samuel L. Jackson, and Penn Jillette as well as healthcare experts Doctors Dean Ornish, Neal Barnard, John McDougall, Joel Fuhrman, Caldwell Esselstyn, Michael Greger & T. Colin Campbell.

“As someone who has been accused of being vegan as part of some trend, I think that is one of the most significant aspects of this documentary. It was really was powerful because you’re seeing people eating this way specifically in parts of the country that have the most difficulty with all of these kinds of health problems. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance Survey, Obesity rates are quite high across America. Within the Midwest and South, you can see rates over 30 percent. There are a total of 45 states which have an obesity rate of over 25 percent and 22 states with rates above 30 percent. Seven of the 10 states with the highest obesity rates are in the South and 23 of the 25 states with the highest rates of obesity are in the South and Midwest. These states include Arkansas, West Virginia, Mississippi, Alabama, Oklahoma, Ohio, and South Carolina.” – Mayim Bialik. Grok Nation.
