Invitation to premiere of PLANEAT
The SA Vegan Society invites you to the SA premiere of PLANEAT, a groundbreaking new film about the health and ecological benefits of a plant-based diet.
PLANEAT is the story of three men’s life-long search for a diet that is good for our health, good for the environment and good for the future of the planet. The film features the ground-breaking work of Dr. T Colin Campbell in China exploring the link between diet and disease, Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn’s use of diet to treat heart disease patients and Professor Gidon Eshel’s investigations into how our food choices contribute to global warming, land use and oceanic deadzones. With an additional cast of pioneering chefs and some of the best cooking you have ever seen, the scientists and doctors in the film present a convincing case for the West to re-examine its love affair with meat and dairy.
With the help of some innovative farmers and chefs, PLANEAT shows how many of the problems we face today can be solved, without having to resort to a diet of lentils and lettuce leaves.
Nothing changes the planet as much as the way we eat.
