Thanks for this! I put a link up on my facebook and my bf saw it and is thinking of reducing his milk intake! Trouble is that he body builds and wants to replace it with a high protein equivalent but hates soya milk :s

Depends on what you mean by "premieres." The film was shown here in Nashville in 2010. I saw it at the Belcourt Theater with a number of friends.

Yes there have been screenings of this movie going on for over a year, however this week is when it actually is released and hits theaters across the country.

I've been waiting for it, too <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":p"> Don't think many theaters around here will be playing it. Might have to go to Toronto.

I just saw it!<br>
Right afterwards my boyfriend the omni said, "Let's walk to Whole Foods so I can get some vegetables." <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smitten.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":smitten:">

Saw it on Friday, it was great. I read all the books of the MDs featured in the film, so I knew all they had to say already, but it was nice to see it in a film format. Hopefully the film changes and saves lives.

Not just from that, but I guess it was the straw that broke the camels back!<br><br>
We've been dating for about 3 years and I was vegetarian the whole time and have been vegan for about 2 years now, so he's been absorbing bits and pieces of information over time and also eating a whole lot of vegan food by proxy.<br><br>
He already doesn't consume a lot of dairy and enjoys things like almond milk and coconut ice cream, and there are tons of vegan foods and desserts he likes. He never bought or ate eggs so the only thing he has to work on replacing is crap like pizza and hamburgers.<br><br>
He's an animator so he's a super visual person, I think all the charts and animations and images of surgery, and also images of people looking profoundly better on a plant based diet really had an effect on him. He seemed super inspired and was telling a friend all about it, and this is the first time he's ever directly told me he's going to try being vegan now rather than just that he was trying to cut back on meat or he might go vegetarian some day. Super cool! I'll be around to help him out so lets hope it sticks. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/thumbsup.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":up:">

<div class="quote-block"><b>BW:</b> The connection is grossly underestimated. People know that diet matters, but they [don't realize how much]. People are definitely confused as to what constitutes a healthy diet. From the time we are young, we have it run into our heads that animal-based foods are actually important, healthy components of the diet. The evidence is showing that animal-based foods really arent healthy. The fact that people dont improve their health when they change their diet is because they are changing from one Western-based diet to another. They arent changing to a plant-based diet. When people see the evidence [of a plant-based diet], and try it, I think a lot of them willbe surprised by it.</div>
