Hearing the words What The Health and thinking WTF? This is what the controversial food documentary is all about and why it’s got a huge celebrity backing.
By the creators of the award-winning documentary Cowspiracy, What The Health examines the the damaging effects eating meat has on our bodies and espouses that most major diseases can be prevented and cured through a plant-based diet.
It is described by the filmmakers as “the health documentary that health organisations don’t want you to see”. It claims to expose the collusion and corruption within the meat industry, pharmaceutical companies and the government, suggesting that they are all complicit in keeping society sick and reaping the profits.
It’s backed by big names like Leonardo DiCaprio and Joaquin Phoenix with celebrities like Liam Hemsworth and Miley Cyrus praising its message.
While it seems to feature plenty of compelling research and expert testimonials, some have accused it of 'cherry picking' data so it might be worth chatting to your GP before you toss out every animal product you own.
