Planeat tells the story of the scientists, farmers and chefs tackling one of the greatest problems of our age, the Westís love affair with meat and dairy. Through an extraordinary personal and mouthwatering culinary journey we discover why itís bad for our health, the environment, and our planetís future.

The film features the ground-breaking work of Dr. T Colin Campbell in China exploring the link between diet and disease, Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn Jrís use of diet to treat heart disease patients, and Professor Gidon Eshel's investigations into how to feed an ever-burgeoning population in the midst of global warming. With the help of some innovative chefs and farmers, we are shown how the problems we face today can be solved, without simply resorting to a diet of lentils and lettuce leaves.

UK 2011 Dir. Shelley Lee Davies and Or Shlomi 72min.

+ Q&A with director Shelley Lee Davies, food scientist Richard Marshall & Food Safety & Control expert Dr Delia Ojinnaka.
