In this film diet is used to cure type 2 diabetes and cancer. In another film I watched, called Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead, two people are cured of a rarer autoimmune skin disease, and obesity, and another woman is cured of type 2 diabetes and obesity. This film can also be considered an ad for juicers, but the diets are otherwise normal, with the exception they follow the same guidelines as "Forks over Knives". It is a whole food plant based diet."According to the research of two food scientists, the popularity of processed foods has led to epidemic rates of obesity, diabetes and other diseases."
Coincidentally there is a book out which is an expose of the "food" industry. It probably makes part of its money from its many mentions of brand and corporate names, but it exposes a lot of stuff you may not have known. I learned very many facts from this book: "Salt, Sugar, Fat". It shows why the diets recommended in those two films are so difficult to achieve.
