Can eating lunch be a revolutionary act? Gary Null Productions’ groundbreaking new documentary Saving The Planet – One Bite At A Time, offers an in-depth look at the connection between our eating habits, physical well-being and the viability of our environment and planet.
A rapidly growing number of Americans are faced with serious chronic conditions such as heart disease, cancer diabetes, cancer, Alzheimer’s disease, and dementia. At the same time, we are witnessing unprecedented levels of environmental upheaval across the planet. Extreme events such as severe drought in the American Southwest, deforestation in the Amazon, and never-before-seen intense storm systems are quickly become the norm. Meanwhile, rising global temperatures are melting Arctic sea ice at an alarming rate and 2015 is on track to be the hottest year on record.
When confronted by these issues many people feel overwhelmed and without the resources to improve their state of health or positively impact the environment. However, Saving the Planet-One Bite at a Time brings together leading environmental experts, doctors and scientists to relay the critical message that every bite of food we take can either promote chronic disease and environmental destruction or bring healing and balance to the body and planet. These experts provide keen insights on the major role played by the Standard American Diet in today’s epidemic levels of disease and global issues such as climate change, drought and hunger. The film also highlights the tremendous power of choosing an organic, local, plant-based diet in preventing and reversing disease as well as contributing to a healthier and cleaner environment.
Will we continue to turn a blind eye to the dangers of America’s diet or choose to take action and adopt a new paradigm based on sustainability and balance? What is for certain is that time is running out for us to take steps toward a sustainable future. This empowering film provides the knowledge needed for us to begin making a difference, one bite at a time.
