There’s something terribly broken in our industrial food, medical, and pharmaceutical systems. What’s going wrong? Can we really avoid the leading causes of death just by changing our diet? Kip Andersen and Keegan Kuhn, creators of the revolutionary What the Health and the award-winning Cowspiracy documentaries, take readers on a science-based tour of the hazards posed by consuming animal products—and what happens when we stop.

What the Health will guide you on an adventure through this maze of misinformation with the same fresh, engaging approach that made the documentary so popular. Journey with Andersen and Kuhn as they crisscross the country, talking to doctors, dietitians, public health advocates, whistle-blowers, and world-class athletes, to uncover the truth behind the food we eat. With the help of writer Eunice Wong, they empower eaters with knowledge about the lethal entwining of the food, medical, and pharmaceutical industries, and about the corporate web that confuses the public and keeps Americans chronically—and profitably—ill.

Plus, discover 50 recipes to help you reclaim your life and health, including:

Creamy Mac PB&J Smoothie Winter Lentil and Pomegranate Salad Mom’s Ultimate Vegan Chili Black Bean Fudgy Brownies Baked Apple Crumble with Coconut Cream

If the film was a peephole, then the book knocks down the whole door, featuring expanded interviews, extensive research, and new personal narratives. There’s a health revolution brewing. What the Health is your invitation to join.

It goes further than just…

This was a life saver…… literally!!! I first watched What the Health on Netflix and found it very informative. I then bought the book and was surprised at how much more there was to learn. I started this journey because I am one of the sick people that they are talking about. I was diagnosed with Polymyalgia Rheumatic in 2010. Since that time I have lived in constant pain 24/7. At one point I was taking 4 Gabapentin, 2 Tramadol and Prednisone daily. I was involved in a car accident in 2012 and was hospitalized. During that time I…

Think you are eating healthy? Guess again. After watching the documentary under the same name as the book, on Netflix, I seriously almost got sick. You have to watch this documentary . 90% off the food we eat is in some way disgusting and killing us and we don’t even know it. We think we are eating healthy, etc. Guess again. After watching the documentary and reading this companion book, you’ll want to throw all your food out and be vegan. I haven’t quite gotten there yet, but trying to buy organic veggies and fruits so far. Seriously,…
