Leading plant-based physician Dr. Greger described upcoming documentary The Game Changers as the ‘best of its kind’ in an exclusive interview this week. 

The much-anticipated film, which was executive produced by Hollywood heavyweight James Cameron, looks at the health benefits of a plant-based diet. 

Plant-based athletes

It features a list of top athletes, including pro surfer Tia Blanco, NFL quarterback Lou Smith, weightlifter Kendrick Farris, world-famous strongman Patrik Baboumian, and superstar Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Dr. Greger‘s comments came just moments before the first trailer, featuring Arnold Schwarzenegger, was released (see above). His praise follows a solid review by Vogue magazine, which called it a ‘groundbreaking picture,’ that ‘will change the way you look at meat.’

Best of its kind

Dr. Greger – who sat down with Jeff Morgan of YouTube – assured Morgan that it would ‘rock his world’.

He added: “This is the best plant-based documentary in human history.”

‘Science’

Cameron – who has been eating plant-based for many years – discussed the film, and his own diet, in a recent interview with Deadline.

Addressing the misconception that a diet of ‘animal flesh’ breeds strength, he said: “The science shows completely the opposite, that it’s actually really bad for you in almost every way, reduces your performance and that you can achieve the same kind of strength and performance levels and go beyond with plant fuel.”
