Forks Over Knives debuted in theaters across the country in May 2011, and ultimately played on more than 90 screens. The DVD was released in September 2011, when it also became available on Netflix, iTunes, and several other digital platforms. The film was the #1 documentary DVD on Amazon for over two years, and was awarded the Documentary/Special Interest Title of the Year in 2012 by the Entertainment Merchants Association.

Brian Wendel is the creator and executive producer of Forks Over Knives and has had a longtime interest in nutrition and health. In the summer of 2008, having read The China Study by T. Colin Campbell, he decided the most effective way to bring this message of food and health to a broad audience was by feature film. He recruited an award-winning veteran production team that included John Corry, Lee Fulkerson, and Allison Boon.

John Corry, producer, has produced over 200 documentary programs. Lee Fulkerson, director and writer, has produced, directed, written, or supervised nearly 170 hours of documentary programming and has won 19 international awards for his work. Allison Boon, co-producer, helped develop over 100 hours of programming for networks like the History Channel, National Geographic, and Bravo.

T. Colin Campbell, PhD, has been at the forefront of nutrition research for more than 40 years. His legacy, The China Project, is considered the most comprehensive study of health and nutrition ever conducted. Dr. Campbell is the recipient of several awards, both in research and citizenship, and has actively participated in the development of national and international nutrition policy. Caldwell Esselstyn, Jr., MD, has published more than 150 scientific articles, including his benchmark long-term nutritional research on arresting and reversing coronary artery disease in severely ill patients. That same study was updated at 12 years, making it one of the longest longitudinal studies of its type.

Learning Objectives
There exists compelling evidence that individuals have more control over their health outcomes than what they realize. And this control applies not only to prevention, but to treatment. Indeed foods—specifically a diet based on whole plant foods—can reliably halt or reverse several of our worst chronic ailments far better than any medication. For example, heart disease, the number one killer of people in the Unites States, may very well be a disease that can almost always be successfully treated.
