It's Friday... some weekend viewing when you've got about 90 minutes to spare. Although this one just might save your life. As someone who comes from a family with a history of diabetes, this was especially evocative.

As I'm watching this, I'm thinking about Byron Hurt's Soul Food Junkies doc that's in circulation right now, but I haven't seen yet, and definitely plan to.

Simply Raw: Reversing Diabetes in 30 Days is an independent doc that follows six Americans with diabetes (3 of them are African American) who switch to a diet consisting entirely of vegan, organic, and uncooked food in order to reverse disease naturally. The six are challenged to give up meat, dairy, sugar, alcohol, nicotine, caffeine, soda, junk food, fast food, processed food, packaged food, and even cooked food for 30 straight days, and each participant's journey is caputred on film - the medical, physical, and emotional transformations brought on by this radical lifestyle change, and the struggle, support, and hope each endures along the way.

What is revealed, with startling clarity, is that diet can reverse disease and change lives.

Michael Bedar directed the film.

It's worth watching. I found it on the entire film on Vimeo, split into two parts; both are embedded below:

    I have a friend who's been doing raw for about 10 years. This dude looks EXACTLY the same as he did when we went to college together. It's truly amazing what our diet does to our bodies.
