What the Health
2017 · Unrated · 1h 32m
What the Health is the follow-up film from the creators of the award-winning documentary Cowspiracy. The film follows filmmaker Kip Andersen as he uncovers the secret to preventing and even reversing chronic diseases – and investigates why the nation’s leading health organizations don’t want us to know about it.
With heart disease and cancer the leading causes of death in America, and diabetes at an all-time high, the film reveals possibly the largest health cover-up of our time. With the help of medical doctors, researchers, and consumer advocates, the film exposes the collusion and corruption in government and big business that is costing us trillions of healthcare dollars and keeping us sick.
Join Kip as he tracks down the leading and most trusted American health nonprofits to find out why these groups are staying silent, despite a growing body of evidence. Audiences will be shocked to learn the insidious roles played by pharmaceutical companies, agribusiness, and processed animal food companies in the nation’s health, especially in the most vulnerable communities, and will cheer at the transformation and recovery of those who took their lives into their own hands.
It’s surprising, and at times hilarious, an investigative documentary that will be an eye-opener for everyone concerned about our nation’s health and how big business influences it.

“Ultimately, the film asks questions that should have been asked a long time ago, and does a really good job of answering them. It highlights the myth that nutrition is separate to medicine, and uncovers raw and obvious truths that once seen cannot be forgotten. Crucially, What the Health is not designed to chastise omnivores for their dietary habits. To the contrary: it is impressively effective in observing how muddied the waters around nutrition and health have become – and how we have been misled and manipulated by those in power.” – Omar Sultani & Rachel Willcocks. “Cowspiracy-Makers Launches What the Health.” Plantbasednews.org. 14 Mar 2017
“This film is as powerful as Cowspiracy and really illustrates and further emphasizes the corruption that is rampant among the so-called charitable ‘health’ organizations and big business. Despite having seen most of the vegan documentaries that have been released in the past few years, I learnt new health facts and went away from the film feeling more determined and inspired to keep on going with vegan awareness campaigns and projects. This is definitely the film to show your non-vegan friends and relatives. It will shock and motivate them to make the necessary dietary changes so they can lead healthier, happier lives.” – Clare Mann. “What the Health documentary review.” Vegansarecool.com. 7 Mar 2017
“While disappointed by a few things in the film, mostly the continuation of fat-shaming and promoting veganism as a magical cure-all, we found the documentary incredibly effective, engaging and entertaining. We highly, highly recommend it. Even as two people who came into veganism through health, we were stunned by the amount of information that was new to us.” – Nichole. “113 Documentary Review: What the Health.” Veganwarriorprincessattack.com. 7 Mar 2017
“Perhaps the most important documentary you will ever see, it’s a film about the power of special interest groups to drive unhealthy consumer spending habits. It’s about environmental racism and the impact of animal agriculture on community health. And it’s about why you need to rethink for yourself everything you’ve ever been told about the relationship between business and food, the impact of food choice on personal health, and your body’s incredible, innate power to prevent, fight and even reverse the chronic lifestyle illnesses that are unnecessarily killing people by the millions.” – Rich Roll. “What the Health – How Corporate Collusion is Making Us Sick & Costing Us Trillions.” Richroll.com. 12 Mar 2017

“…the World Health Organization announced that, according to over eight hundred studies, they determined processed meats cause cancer. They’re a Group 1 carcinogen, equal to cigarettes…The thing that struck me the most is that these people are no schleps. They’re accomplished surgeons, cardiologists, professors, physicians…and they’re all saying the same things.” – Dawn Hutchins. “What the Health Film Review.” Floridacoastalcooking.com. 11 Apr 2017
