Plant-Based Research Resources

Recently we had the pleasure of hosting a film screening of an informative documentary called “The Big Fat Lie” created by New Zealander, Grant Dixon. At age 58 Grant is rushed to hospital with a heart attack. This documentary tells his story of discovering how a Whole Foods Plant Based diet could turn his life around, and his journey to find out why the Ministry of Health hadn’t warned him about the real dangers of animal foods in his diet.

If you’re interested in watching Grant’s film, it is now available to be viewed on Vimeo for a very small charge.  At the end of the film Grant asked all the participants “Who are your Plant-Based Heros?” We’ve listed below the names and links to those that were mentioned.
