The truth that people do not want to hear
1 July 2017 | by ariannasofiaSee all my reviews

It is amazing how people reject new information and claim that this documentary is just vegan propaganda but they do not complain about the propaganda that raised them to eat meat, milk, cheese, and consume medicines for every little discomfort.

Loved the film.
