Chow Down for Health

Film pushes plant-based diet to reverse heart disease

Julia Grayer’s Chow Downnewly released on DVD, examines the countless ways that the country’s lack of focus on nutritional healing and dependence on cheap and unhealthy convenience food impact the prevalence of disease. With a blend of animation and expert interviews, the film follows a man who seeks to reverse his late-stage heart disease with a plant-based diet. Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn, the director of a long-running study that seeks to prove that a plant-based diet can reverse heart disease, oversees the treatment. The film was an official selection at both the Kos International Health Film Festival 2010 and the IDFA’s Docs for Sale 2009.
