What The Health: My Response

Okay, so I just finished watching Kip Andersen’s 2017 Documentary What The Health on Netflix.

In short the film is essentially a convoluted push into ‘veganism.’ It did however, reveal very interesting specifics on how meat, dairy and egg companies are funnelling millions of dollars of funding into US run health charities. Oh and how could I forget, it’s also filled with – you guessed it – highly disturbing shots of cow throats being slashed, fly-ridden pigs and balding half-plucked chickens – what a combo!

Despite already having knowledge of many of the facts and ideas presented, and being well-aware of the corrupt and cyclical nature of the US food industry, something about it made me actually consider the vegan diet.

Now don’t get me wrong, I’m not a changed women with hairy arm-pits wearing a hemp sack-dress JUST yet, but I am intrigued. Anderson managed to prove the personal health benefits of eating plant-based, as well as the benefits to the environment and wider society in such a way that wasn’t overly pushy or wanky and certainly had my brain ticking over. Being the ever judicious skeptic that I am, I would never jump into a new way-of-life without further research and first-hand testing…
