An award-winning plant-based documentary creating awareness about the whole food, plant-based diet is now available to watch on Plant Based News’ YoutTube channel.

H.O.P.E (which stands for Healing Of Planet Earth) What You Eat Matters – features Austrian author and filmmaker Nina Messinger, as she goes on a journey through Europe, India and the US to investigate the consequences of our diet.

A number of experts were interviewed for the documentary, including Dr. Jane Goodall, T. Colin Campbell, PhD, surgeon, Caldwell B. Esselstyn, Jr., and psychologist Melanie Joy, PhD.

The film examines the consequence the typical Western diet is having on animals, the planet, and human health.

Filmmaker Nina Messinger says: “The film’s deeply distressing images and moving stories make a clear case for a plant-based diet that is not just a short-lived lifestyle trend but provides a solution for preserving our entire world.

“The movie serves up a stunningly simple, yet comprehensive solution – right on our plates. Changing our eating habits will rebalance not just our health, but the planet itself.”
