Eating You Alive is a feature-length documentary revealing the truth behind why Americans are so sick and what we can do about it.  

We are literally eating ourselves to death.

Half of all adults in the U.S. struggle with chronic health conditions, including cancer, heart disease, stroke, diabetes, obesity, hypertension, Alzheimer’s, arthritis and erectile dysfunction.   

Despite billions of dollars spent on medical research, new drugs and innovative technology to improve our health, more Americans are disabled and dying from chronic disease than ever before.

We have become a "pill popping" population, encouraged by a health care system that reimburses procedures rather than healthfulness, a pharmaceutical industry that gets paid to treat but not cure chronic disease, and a government that provides subsidies to the very food industries that they then warn us against. 

Featuring leading medical experts and researchers, Eating You Alive takes a scientific look at the reasons we’re so sick, who’s responsible for feeding us the wrong information and how we can use whole-food, plant-based nutrition to take control of our health—one bite at a time.

“In the documentary film, “Eating You Alive,” the whole-food, plant-based diet never had such a roster of notable advocates.

There’s actor Samuel L. Jackson, who asks, “What’s on your plate?” and “Titanic” director James Cameron, who understands the human toll when things go awry, be it nautical or dietary.

Penn Jillette, of Penn and Teller fame, now is causing plant foods to disappear with Suzy Amis Cameron acting these days on food and environmental issues.”
