Personally, watching these films and documentaries were the some of the biggest influences on why I made the change to go vegan. If they don’t do the same for you, they will at least inform on how to live a truly healthy lifestyle, how we can use food as medicine, and the positive impact veganism has on our environment. So grab your (vegan) snacks and popcorn, and be prepared to educate yourself into the world of the unknown-that should be known.
