What the Health is the groundbreaking follow-up film from the creators of the award-winning documentary Cowspiracy.
The film follows intrepid filmmaker Kip Andersen as he uncovers the secret to preventing and even reversing chronic diseases and investigates why the nation’s leading health organizations don’t want us to know about it. With heart disease and cancer the leading causes of death in America, and diabetes at an all-time high, the film reveals possibly the largest health coverup of our time. With the help of medical doctors, researchers, and consumer advocates, What the Health exposes the collusion and corruption in government and big business that is costing us trillions of healthcare dollars, and keeping us sick.
Join Kip as he tracks down the leading and most trusted American health nonprofits to find out why these groups are staying silent, despite a growing body of evidence. Audiences will be shocked to learn the insidious roles played by pharmaceutical companies, agribusiness, and processed animal food companies in the nation’s health, especially in the most vulnerable communities, and will cheer at the transformation and recovery of those who took their lives into their own hands.
Prior to the film, we will have announcements regarding upcoming events and actions for peace and social justice to counter the Trump/Bannon/Ryan agenda. A discussion follows the film with speakers who will be announced on the Topanga Peace Alliance Facebook page (facebook.com/groups/53323228710).
