Food ReLOVution: What we eat can make a difference is an eye-opening and compelling feature documentary that examines the consequences of the meat culture as concerns grow about health, world hunger, animal welfare and the environmental cost of livestock production. Featuring among others Italian epidemiologist Franco Berrino and distinguished biochemist, nutrition scientists and author of The China Study Dr. T Colin Campbell and his son Thomas M. Campbell. It aims to show how these global issues affect everyone and are interrelated, and how making our food choices with a sense of awareness, knowing what we are buying and what we are eating is the first fundamental step towards a better world.
It aims to be an inspiring tool of understanding and empowerment, reminding us that we have the power to change things if we really want, starting with ourselves. Everything we eat has a consequence. Knowing this helps us to reflect, to understand the impact of our daily choices and to act with awareness; actions based on coherence, understanding and the love that is born from respect for Life. The change we’ve been waiting for starts with ourselves. Choice is our most powerful weapon, let us learn to use it. Only then can we make a contribution to changing the world.
There is a need for us not simply to trust the food dogmas imposed by society, but to get to know what we eat, the only way that we can kickstart the revolution. A revolution carried out with love.
