We are honored to introduce to you excerpts from an award-winning and inspiring film called “H.O.P.E. What You Eat Matters” that reveals the truth about the severe impact an animal-based diet has on our health, the animals, and our planet.

In 2006, Nina Messinger of Austria started giving talks and organizing seminars about nutrition and health. Her growing awareness of the terrible consequences of the animal-based Western diet prompted her to start working on a documentary called “HOPE FOR ALL” in 2012. She traveled to Europe, India and the US to interview leading environmentalists, scientists, doctors, and nutritionists, as well as people who had recovered from serious illnesses by changing their diet. After the film was released in Germany in 2016, Ms. Messinger spent a year working on an English version of the film that was renamed “H.O.P.E. What You Eat Matters.” H.O.P.E. stands for “Healing Of Planet Earth.”

“And I think this idea needs to be conveyed to people, that there is a strong association between the Western diet – high in animal foods, processed foods, protein, fat and so forth – and diseases. People have to know that that really is true.”

“Scientists know that cardiovascular disease starts with progressive damage to the endothelial cells. This is precisely where our diets come in. The excessive consumption of animal-based or processed foods damages our endothelial cells. Regular consumption of these products increasingly diminishes the protective nitric oxide supply in our blood vessels. This leads to inflammation and a hardening and narrowing of the blood vessels. These can have life-threatening consequences, like heart attack or stroke, or cause arteriosclerosis.”

If we could stop eating meat, that would certainly be a big step in the right direction. However, what about drinking milk? T. Colin Campbell is a world-renowned nutritional scientist. In a series of experiments, he was able to prove that animal proteins – casein in particular – promote all stages of cancer growth. “Dairy really should be out.” “And dairy also has, and there’s good evidence for this, it has some allergenic properties.”
