TV host Jon Stewart hosted a screening of pro-plant-based documentary The Game Changers last week – and used the opportunity to promote the benefits of a vegan diet.

The screening, at Monmouth University in New Jersey, was followed by a panel discussion featuring Stewart, the film’s co-writers and producers James Wilkes and Joseph Pace, cardiologist Dr. Robert Ostfeld, and athlete Rip Esselstyn among others.

Stewart’s wife, Tracey Stewart, introduced the film.

‘Turned around by broccoli’

“I don’t know if you see the healthy glow of my skin, but it wasn’t always this way,” Stewart told reporters before the screening. “I was an ashen, bloated. I smoked a lot. I did not live properly. But I’ve been turned around by broccoli.”

Following the screening, he told viewers: “As you get older and become more aware of the world and your body, it just makes sense to be informed and smart, and what you put into your body should be no different.

“You should be as informed and well versed in what is positive and what is negative, and that journey has led us to this.”
