Nearly 30.4 million people die each year from chronic diseases and $3. 8 trillion spent in healthcare costs in the U. S. alone for treating what the CDC defines as "among most common, costly and preventable of all health problems. " Tackling one of the greatest health catastrophes of our time, this powerful film reveals how what we eat exacerbates illnesses and, more importantly, explains — in an accessible and engrossing manner — how we can prevent, arrest and even reverse chronic diseases through diet. Along with professional insights from several leading physicians and medical researchers, Eating You Alive features compelling endorsements from celebrities such as director James Cameron and actress Suzy Amis Cameron, actor Samuel L. Jackson and entertainer Penn Jillette, in addition to moving testimonies from everyday individuals who have healed themselves with whole foods. It's time for a revolution in healthcare and it starts with the next bite.
