    Jodorowsky's Dune

    I’m glad to have finally taken the time to watch this. It was a surprisingly emotional experience, and I’m still not sure why.

    Even if you don't cut out meat, dairy, eggs, etc. from your diet, it's worth knowing the risks associated with it. The documentary does a good job of visualizing and showing those risks. 

    For me, eating a plant-based vegan diet for the past two years has had a positive impact on my life. It's one of the best…
