about

The definitive, stand-alone companion book to the groundbreaking documentary—now with 50 plant-based recipes with full-color photosto help you start changing your health for the better

We know there's something terribly broken about our industrial food, medical, and pharmaceutical systems—even as medicine continues to advance, people in the Western world are getting sicker than ever. What's going wrong, and what do we need to know to stop it? Can we avoid the leading causes of death, just by changing our diet?

Kip Andersen and Keegan Kuhn, creators of the revolutionary documentaryWhat the Healthand the award-winning documentaryCowspiracy, take readers on a science-based tour of the hazards of eating animal products—and what happens when we stop.

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, and its stunning implications for our health. 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, legislative web that confuses the public and keep Americans chronically—and profitably—ill.

What the Healthtakes readers on an adventure through this maze of misinformation with the same fresh, engaging approach that made their documentary so popular with viewers.

Also included are 50 recipes to help you reclaim your life and health, including:

  • Creamy Mac
  • Kitchen Sink Shredded Salad
  • Whole Wheat Pasta with Tomato Sauce and White Beans
  • Black Bean Fudgy Brownies
  • Baked Apple Crumble with Coconut Cream

If the film was a peephole, then the book knocks down the door itself, with expanded interviews, extensive research, and new personal narratives.

There's a health revolution brewing.What the Healthis your invitation to join.

Kip Andersen's awakening as a filmmaker came as a result of An Inconvenient Truth. After seeing the film, he dramatically changed his lifestyle and believed he was doing everything he could to help the planet. But his life took a different direction when he found out animal agriculture is the leading cause of environmental destruction....
