Documentary following a pair of doctors who believe they have gathered evidence which suggests that a meat free diet leads to better health outcomes. Dr T. Colin Campbell and Dr Caldwell Esselstyn Jr. work separately but their findings have led them to more or less the same conclusion: incidences of heart disease, cancer and several other illnesses are higher among affluent groups who consume meat than those who are restricted to a plant-based diet. The pair discuss their findings and follow the cases of a number of patients who switch to a vegetarian diet to see if it will help alleviate their symptoms.
