Here are some quotes from the Plant Pure Nation Website about the film.
“The documentary film PlantPure Nation tells the story of three people on a quest to spread the message of one of the most important health breakthroughs of all time. After renowned nutritional scientist and bestselling author T. Colin Campbell gives a stirring speech on the floor of the Kentucky House of Representatives, his son, Nelson, and Kentucky State Representative Tom Riner work together to propose a pilot program documenting the health benefits of a plant-based diet. Once the legislation goes into Committee, agribusiness lobbyists kill the plan. Undeterred, Nelson decides to try his own pilot project in his hometown of Mebane, North Carolina.”
“The filmmakers hope to use PlantPure Nation to create broad grassroots movement. They are spearheading the formation of Plant Pure Pods in cities and towns across N. America. Members of these groups will help to plant seeds of change around the message plant-based nutrition in their communities. One tool they will use in this effort will be the same 10-day Jumpstart program featured in the film, to give people the experience of a whole food, plant-based diet.”“The PlantPure Nation movement has already begun! The film team embarked on a successful preview screening tour in 23 cities across the United States and Canada to discuss an advance cut of the film with audiences in April, May and June. Then they held the PlantPure Nation World Premiere at the ArcLight Hollywood on June 25th for an enthusiastic audience of 400 attendees.
“PlantPure Nation was filmed across the USA and features Steve Forbes, Jr. (Editor-in-Chief Forbes Magazine,) Dr. T. Colin Campbell (Co-Author, The China Study,) Dr. Neal Barnard (Founder and President, Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine,) Dr. Michael Greger, (Director of Public Health and Animal Agriculture, Humane Society of the United States) leading the list of world-renowned experts, doctors and authors who speak on the topic. The Production team includes Director Nelson Campbell and Producer John Corry & Writer Lee Fulkerson from the acclaimed documentary film Forks Over Knives. PlantPure Nation, however, is not a sequel to Forks Over Knives.”
A new social movement is being launched through groups called PlantPure Pods. Members of Pods will work together to promote the message of plant-based nutrition in their communities. What is a PlantPure Pod? Its easy to get involved.
