Featuring Scientific Integrity and Two Soul-Searching Movies
Since beginning this daily blog over a year ago, Dr. T. Colin Campbell has been mentioned more than any other single person. That’s because he is the world’s leading authority on plant-based nutrition. With a mission of delivering “scientific integrity for optimal health,” his work features a unique blend of credibility, legitimacy and authenticity. For all these reasons, our special Sunday Learning Series is dedicated to his work and to his foundation:
Plant-Based Nutrition Course. As you may know, this great organization (along with eCornell) provides the only plant-based nutrition course in the world that features continuing education credits for MD’s, RD’s, and other health professionals. I have taken that course myself, it has made a huge difference in my life and I enthusiastically recommend it to others. You can learn more about it and even sample one of the lectures by visiting the Plant-Based Nutrition Course on the TCC Foundation website.
Videos and Articles. In addition to the plant-based nutrition course, Dr. Campbell’s website offers a wealth of scientific integrity in the form of videos and articles. For a list of articles by category, visit this page. For example, the first category is Transitioning to a Plant-Based Diet and features about twenty articles by Dr. Campbell and other experts. There is also a search function whereby you can search almost any nutritional topic.
Now, for your Sunday afternoon viewing pleasure. Gather your family, get some popcorn (or celery) and take a little time to learn about our responsibilities as humans when it comes to the future of this planet. The message in these movies is all about the tagline of our Harmony Project—promoting health, hope and harmony on planet Earth.
Two great movies that we all must see.
HOME, debuted in 2009 but still hasn’t been seen by nearly enough people. Narrated by Glenn Close, this marvelous film describes how life evolved on planet Earth 4 billion years ago and how everything is connected—-land, water, air, trees, creatures and humankind.
As Glenn describes how humankind has disrupted the fragile harmony of Nature in just the past fifty years, the powerful message will leave you feeling differently about the role of the human race on our precious planet. Don’t have 90 minutes to spare right now? Then watch this two-minute trailer; then make some time real soon to watch the full 90-minute movie. You’ll be glad you did.

Next is Earthlings, narrated by Joaquin Phoenix. Another great movie, it helps us understand how we’re just one of millions of species on this planet. Yet we have the power to affect the livelihood of all of the others. This is a movie you should watch with your children. For a preview, take a look at the 3-minute trailer below:
Nature—Animals—Humankind. Get the connection? In the full 95-minute movie below, Joaquin covers the “three stages of truth.”

It’s nice to see this blog, when I was 14 I read McDougall’s books, and remember when T.Colin Campbell was still not totally agreeing with the whole plant based diet theme, but I ate the vegetables and fruits anyway because I knew it was the correct way to nourish. I went to school for Nutrition at the University of Maryland, unfortunately my loans ran out before I could finish my very last semester. Thankfully achieved my A.S. from Cobleskill College prior and changed their entire school menu to include locally grown vegetarian options in 1998 and did the same for the UMD.
I toured Cornell when I was 16 and now that I am in my mid-30’s most of my family and friends are all eating the diet I so eagerly promoted at such a young age. I lost the greatest grandparents in the world at age 12 and my mission was to help prevent the heart attacks and strokes they died of from taking the rest of my beloved relatives. It’s been a long battle, but just wanted to say good work and would be my honor to someday meet you all.
