Top plant-based physician Dr. Michael Greger has described upcoming documentary The Game Changers as the best of its kind in an exclusive interview this week.
The much-anticipated film, which is 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.
Dr. Greger's comments came just moments before the first trailer, featuring Arnold Schwarzenegger, was released (see above). His praise follows a solid review by Vogue magazine, which called it a 'groundbreaking picture,' that 'will change the way you look at meat.'
Dr. Greger - who sat down with Jeff Morgan of YouTube’s Guilt Free TV recently, to discuss health, nutrition, and The Game Changers - was clearly enthusiastic about the film's impending release.
The physician, who had an exclusive early viewing of the film, assured Morgan that it would ‘rock his world'.
He added: "This is the best plant-based documentary in human history."
Dr. Greger also discussed the key to healthy eating with Morgan - saying the 'basic principals' are 'the same for everybody'.
"Every animal has their own kind of natural diet," he added - which is precisely what The Game Changers delves into.
The film features a stellar creative team: along with producer James Cameron, Oscar winner Louie Psihoyos directs, and MMA fighterJames Wilks narrates.
Cameron - who has been eating plant-based for many years - discussed the film, and his own diet, in a recent interview with Deadline magazine.
Addressing the misconception that a diet of 'animal flesh' breeds strength, he said: "The science shows completely the opposite, that it’s actually really bad for you in almost every way, reduces your performance and that you can achieve the same kind of strength and performance levels and go beyond with plant fuel."
