Hollywood director and producer James Cameron says he wants to 'put viagra out of business' by spreading the word about the sexual benefits of plant-based eating.

Cameron, who ditched animal products six years ago, made the comments while speaking about new documentary The Game Changersin an interview with Toronto-based newspaper The Star.

The much-anticipated film, which is executive produced by Hollywood heavyweight James Cameron, looks at the health benefits of a plant-based diet. It features a list of top athletes, including pro surfer Tia Blanco, NFL quarterback Lou Smith, weightlifter Kendrick Farris, world-famous strongman Patrik Baboumian, and superstar Arnold Schwarzenegger.

One of the scenes in the film shows three men having the length and girth of their erections measured after eating plant-based meals - and experiencing better erections.

Cameron, who calls it 'peter meter' scene, said it is 'the scene of the film'.

Keen to promote the benefits a plant-based diet can have in the bedroom, the producer added: "I'd love to put Viagra out of business, just by spreading the word on plant-based eating."

 The documentary, which was directed by Louis Psihoyos (previously known for The Cove) premiered at Sundance Film Festival late last year.

In a recent interview with Plant Based New, What the Health Co-director Kip Anderson called the movie 'outstanding'.

He added: "It really takes it to that next level. It's not only about how you can thrive being vegan, but you can fully excel.

"It's going to change the whole athletics world - you watch this thing and you're going to want to go vegan. It does a great job."

There is no general release information available for The Game Changers at this time.
