Vegan advocacy film, H.O.P.E The Project, has launched a new series of short films, showcasing vegan stories.
H.O.P.E What You Eat Matters is a documentary about how a typical western diet affects our health, exposing the truth behind the environmental problems associated with it. H.O.P.E The Project ties in with the film, with the initials standing for ‘Healing Of Planet Earth’.
The mission of the project is to encourage people to choose healthier lifestyles by opting for an organic, plant-based diet in order to preserve the environment and protect animals.
The Plant Power Stories aim to inform and educate people on the benefits of living a plant-based diet, and live a more conscious lifestyle.
One of the stories is about D Anthony Evans – an international speaker and plant-based life coach. D speaks about his transformation from meat eater to vegan whilst living with cancer, recounting his experiences.
D was diagnosed with neurofibromatosis, a rare genetic disorder causing tumours to grow on nervous tissue as a child, which can become malignant and causes an aggressive form of cancer called Malignant Peripheral Nerve Sheath Tumours.
During his life he has had 11 operations to remove 385 tumours, but decided not to undergo therapy. Prior to his cancer diagnosis, D ate around 10,000 calories per day and was a self-confessed ‘meat head’.
D completely changed his lifestyle to a plant-based diet, in order to maintain his best physical shape and care for his health. His wholefoods, vegan diet means he can train for up to 4 hours per day, every day and deadlift 700lbs.
The Plant Power Stories is a series that is set to continue with more accounts of how veganism has changed an individual’s life.
