Forks Over Knives Trailer Synopsis

The Forks Over Knives trailer is truly a great introduction to what you can hope to learn in the movie. I'm going to briefly share what is in it, and how the filmmakers expand the concepts in the full length movie.

When watching the Forks Over Knives trailer, the first thing we are told is that our children might live shorter lives than we do. What?! I'm sure a lot of questions are popping into your mind right now. The next information given backs up that claim stating 'there is a crisis in America'. Alarm bells start blowing (in our minds) and you get a sense that something is exciting and important because the music (the first thing that effects our emotions) is intense. This crisis is our state of health. It's is making people sick, and costing a fortune!

In the Forks Over Knives trailer, there is no effort to tell the whole story, as you would expect, but the do lay out the groundwork and even some of the conclusions we can draw from the information presented. Several different people are interviewed and 'followed' throughout the movie as they try to understand and overcome their illnesses, and the Forks Over Knives trailer gives us the introduction to some of the stories, and the conclusion of others. Even the narrator himself gets an education about his own health, and he gets a surprise at the end of the film. But you'll have to watch the movie to find out what. No spoilers here!

In the trailer, Forks Over Knives gives us a little sample of the many experts that appear in the film. We get to hear from both of the co-stars. The first, Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn, tells us that "heart disease is an absolutely toothless paper tiger, that need never, ever exist." What a statement! He backs up this claim in the film. We also hear from Dr. Colin Campbell who states that, because of his studies, they learned that they could turn on and turn off cancer growth. These are no fanciful claims made in the Forks Over Knives trailer. These is documented science that has been peer reviewed. You will not be disappointed with any "but" statements that tell how these seemingly miraculous things can't happen. They can and do happen, and the movie shows it to us.

This short film trailer, in my opinion, goes a long way in telling the other side of the health and nutrition story in the United States, but the film is of course much better at doing this. You'll have to watch for yourself. You didn't think you would learn it all from the two minute Forks Over Knives trailer, did you?
