PlantPure Nation tells the story of three people on a quest to spread the message of one of the most important health breakthroughs of all time.
When nutritional scientist and author T. Colin Campbell inspires Kentucky State Representative Tom Riner to propose a pilot program documenting the health benefits of a plant-based diet, they inadvertently set in motion a series of events that expose powerful forces opposed to the diet.
Undeterred, when industry lobbyists kill the pilot program, Dr. Campbell’s oldest son Nelson decides to try his own grassroots approach in his hometown of Mebane, North Carolina.

“PlantPure Nation presents a compelling case and offers a simple solution to pervasive health conditions such as heart disease, diabetes, and obesity. This film is part of a grassroots movement that will hopefully inspire people to make healthier, scientifically based decisions about how they fuel their bodies.” – Ira Isreal. Huffington Post. PlantPure Nation Film Review. 29 Jun 2015
“All in all, I thoroughly enjoyed and would enthusiastically recommend “PlantPure Nation” to everyone. In fact, it has been added to my arsenal of recommendations for learning about the benefits of a plant-based diet; I will now be recommending “Cowspiracy” to learn about veganism and the environment, “Vegucated” to learn about veganism and the animals (there are others of course, but this one is easier to take than some while still being effective), “Forks Over Knives” to learn about veganism and health, and “PlantPure Nation” to learn about veganism and politics. This is a bit of an over-simplification since these movies are broader in scope than this suggests, but it’s nice to have a broad range of movies with different emphases to recommend.” – Linda Arcuri. “PlantPure Nation.” Eat.Drink.Better. 8 Sept 2015
