Planeat is a 2010 British documentary film by Or Shlomi and Shelley Lee Davies.[1][2] The film discusses the possiblenutritional and environmental benefits of adopting a whole foodsplant-based diet based on the research of T. Colin Campbell,Caldwell Esselstyn and Gidon Eshel.[1][3] The film also features the views of Peter Singer.[4]

According to Shelley Lee Davies, the film purposely does not cover any purported animal welfare arguments for adopting a plant-based (vegan) diet, but concentrates on the health and environmental reasons instead.[3]

Planeat premiered at the 2010 Newport Beach Film Festival.[5] It released theatrically in the United States in April 2011 and the United Kingdom in May 2011.[6][7] The film was privately screened by the film's directors and Willie Bain MP at Somerset House in March 2011 and in the House of Commons in May 2011.[7][8] Trailer from on Vimeo.

A group of leading international scientists, doctors and professors have spent their lives trying to find out what is the best way to eat. A pattern has begun to emerge in their research, which shows that our animal-based diets are the cause of our most challenging health and environmental problems. Having to battle against their own beliefs, and those of the institutions they worked for, they have come up with a solution that will change people's lives forever. They share their ideas on how we can not only prevent prevalent diseases like cancer and heart disease but also cure them. And also how applying the same principles can dramatically reduce our greenhouse gas emissions, at the same time as providing more food for the planet. In accordance with this scientific evidence, pioneering farmers and chefs around the world are discovering new ways to produce and prepare the food we should be eating.
