In March of 2017 the creators of Cowspiracy released their follow-up title "What the Health". It followed Kip Andersen as he endeavored in a quest to find out why so many health organizations and government bodies seemed to be encouraging diets that supported chronic illness. The Documentary went to great lengths to show that there was something nefarious going on all the while attempting to educate its viewers on proper diet and its benefit towards long term health.
In this episode of Lessons from the Screen we will be looking at this documentary and the impact of the movement it represents. We will also look at some of the claims presented in this documentary and there validity. Finally we will look at how what we can learn from this documentary and how we can use that knowledge to create a better space for ourselves.
