Forks Over Knives Movie

There are a few movies that go with this cookbook that I've watched. I has some quite profound information in it. One of the things that sticks out in my mind from watching it is how hot dogs were made. It's didn't look healthy at all and it didn't encourage me to want to eat them again. So seeing this part in the movie confirmed my dislike for them. I do, however, eat veggie soy meat hot dogs which are known as Super Links or Vega Links that I've eaten as a child.Those are vegetarian which are the only kind I like
