welcome to the inaugural issue of forks over knives magazine!

As you may know, Forks Over Knives was launched with a feature film in 2011. The film made the radical but convincing case that modern diseases can be prevented, halted, and oftentimes reversed by leaving animal foods and highly refined foods off the plate, and adopting a whole food, plant-based diet instead.Since the film’s release, plant-based eating has become increasingly popular and, dare I say, mainstream. More people are learning how a diet of delicious meals—such as bean and rice enchiladas, pesto pasta, and shepherd’s pie—can deliver vibrant health and an optimal weight.We are honored to be a part of the movement through our film and subsequent books, mobile app, online cooking school, and website, among other things. Our goal is simple: Spread the joy this lifestyle has brought to…

Q)Why did the World Health Organization (WHO) classify processed meats as carcinogenic?A)The WHO cancer agency classified processed meats (hot dogs, sausage, ham) as “carcinogenic to humans” and red meat as “probably carcinogenic to humans.” After 22 experts from 10 countries looked at more than 800 studies done around the world, they concluded that “each 50-gram portion of processed meat eaten daily increases the risk of colorectal cancer by 18 percent,” and that it also raised the risk of stomach and other cancers.

7 things that happen when you stop eating meat

1 YOU'LL REDUCE CHRONIC INFLAMMATIONChronic inflammation has been linked to the development of atherosclerosis, heart attacks, strokes, diabetes, and autoimmune diseases, among other conditions. If you are eating meat, cheese, and highly processed foods, chances are you have elevated levels of inflammation in your body.Plant-based diets are naturally anti-inflammatory because they are high in fiber, antioxidants, and other phytonutrients, and much lower in inflammatory triggers like saturated fat and endotoxins (toxins released from bacteria commonly found in animal foods).2 YOUR CHOLESTEROL WILL PLUMMETElevated blood cholesterol is a key risk factor for heart disease and strokes, two of the leading killers in the United States.
