Plant-based documentary Eating You Alive has struck a distribution deal and will be released on DVD, Blu-ray and on-demand on December 4 this year, Plant Based News can reveal.

The feature-length documentary, which features Samuel L. Jackson and Dr. Neal Barnard among others - looks at why so many Americans are in ill-health - and how that can be changed through a whole food plant-based diet.

The Purjes Foundation, which owns Eating You Alive, entered into the long-term distribution agreement with Gravitas Ventures, a Red Arrow Studios company.

In a statement sent to Plant Based News, a spokesperson said: "Eating You Alive is a film that has saved many lives by showing how deadly chronic diseases can be reversed naturally. Diseases such as cancer, heart disease, diabetes, obesity, rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, psoriasis, and other debilitating diseases are reversed to the point where patients are completely healed, with no symptoms and no need for medications.

"Patients and doctors describe how these seemingly miraculous results are achieved simply by converting to a whole foods, plant-based lifestyle.

"Eating You Alive has prompted thousands of viewers to become healthy and vibrant. Recently, a projectionist wrote to the filmmakers that, unbeknownst to them, after watching the film from the projection booth, she converted to a plant-based lifestyle and lost 100 pounds in eight months, while also reversing chronic ailments."
