Thoughts on every movie I've ever seen.

What the Health (2017)

Directed by Kip Andersen, Keegan Kuhn

Starring Kip Andersen, Larry Baldwin, Neal Barnard, Tia Blanco


Yet another in a long line of veggie movies. There are good explorations of dietary science and politics, and a lot of it is worth considering, but some of it is alarmist and distorted. To claim absolutely that we are biologically supposed to be vegetarians, going so far as to claim that chimps don’t eat meat, bends the truth.

Though this movie makes some good strides towards identifying the ideal human diet, I’m not sure this one nails it in the fairest, most objective way. I would have loved to see some interviews with opponents to veganism. Are their arguments valid?
