Melanie Joy - Sociologist & Psychologist: When eating animals is not a necessity for survival which is the case in much of the world today, not all of the world but in much of the world today, then it is a choice and choices always stem from beliefs.

If you care about your family's health, watch. If you love your dog or cat, watch.
28 July 2016 | by nowsharingSee all my reviews

This is the only documentary I've seen that's on par with the quality of Cowspiracy and Forks Over Knives. It's perfectly executed and covers all of the messages that are essential to the vegan movement. What's more, it is by far the most heartfelt film on these subjects, and never loses track of the core arguments at any point throughout.

Not only is the vegan message delivered perfectly, but modern nutritional science is also well treated. If you took nothing else away from Live and Let Live, other than an awareness of the consequences of how what you eat affects you, that would be an achievement in itself.

If you want to make a fundamental change to the world that can begin this very instant, watch.
