There are some amazing documentaries on Netflix, especially when it comes to food and health. If you’re looking to find information on vegan living, then you’ve come to the right place.
Here are five documentaries on Netflix that will make you consider becoming a vegan.
1. The Milk System
According to IMDb, The Milk System takes a hard look at the dairy industry. Through interviews with farmers, dairy owners, politicians, lobbyists, NGOs, and scientists, this documentary sets out to discover just how healthy milk is. The Milk System weighs the pros and cons of the billion-dollar dairy industry. This film will make you reconsider your dairy intake.
2. A Plastic Ocean
Directed by Craig Leeson, A Plastic Ocean delves into the startling amount of plastic waste in our oceans. According to IMDb, Leeson, diver Tanya Streeter, and a team of scientists travel to 20 locations across the world over the course of four years to investigate the state of our oceans. This film will make you really think about how much waste you produce and what happens to it.
3. The Game Changers
As reported by IMDb, The Game Changers follows vegan activist and former professional mixed martial artist James Wilks as he investigates the truth about health, strength, and protein. Through interviews with athletes, special ops soldiers, and scientists, The Game Changers will invite you to question what makes a healthy diet.
4. What the Health
Directed by Kip Andersen and Keegan Kuhn, What the Health advocates for a plant-based diet. As reported by IMDb, this documentary critiques the health impact and consumption of meat, fish, eggs, and dairy products. What the Health will make you wonder how your diet is really affecting your quality of life.
Even though Blackfish is a documentary about orcas in captivity, I think it still deserves a place on this list. The film delves into how emotionally developed and connected killer whales are in the wild and how keeping them captive in such small enclosures causes them severe trauma.
Blackfish really demonstrates how animals are affected by a man-made environment. This movie will make you think about life from the animal’s perspective.
