Quite often in my practice, people will come to me and ask my opinion on this article or that documentary or what have you, so today I’m giving you my personal review of the documentary What the Health. This movie makes some very important points that I agree with, but it also includes some things that I don’t agree with—and those things are pretty important.

Listen in to hear the good, the bad, and the ugly when it comes to this documentary. You’ll learn which important lessons I think we should all take home from it, the irresponsible messaging I want to make sure you don’t buy into, and the important things everyone should keep in mind when it comes to vegetarianism and veganism.

  • Why Dr. Christine is uniquely qualified to review What the Health.
  • Key points she disagrees with in the movie.
