Library Screens Ground-Breaking Documentary: “What the Health”
In their 2017 documentary, “What the Health,” award-winning filmmakers Kip Andersen and Keegan Kuhn uncover one of the United States’ largest health secrets when they expose the collusion between government and big business that costs trillions of dollars and keeps us sick.
Andersen and Kuhn are also the writers and directors of the award-winning documentary “Cowspiracy: the Sustainability Secret.” “Cowspiracy,” a 2014 documentary, revealed the adverse impact that animal agriculture has on the environment. Andersen and Kuhn revealed dangers to the environment including global warming, water depletion, deforestation, and ocean dead zones.
In “What the Health,” Andersen and Kuhn turn their attention to food processing and the health care industry. Through interviews with physicians and with persons employed by health organizations, meat and dairy processors, and pharmaceutical companies, Andersen shows that serious illnesses are caused by the consumption of meat and dairy and that industry collusion keeps this important and deadly information from us.
Lakewood Public Library is proud to screen this 2017 documentary on Tuesday, December 19 at 6:30 p.m. in our Main Library Auditorium. Presented by the Cleveland Vegan Society, “What the Health” highlights the use of antibiotics in agriculture and reveals the financial relationships and conflicts of interest which exist between food industry companies and national public health groups.
