PlantPure Nation is a 2015 American documentary film that advocates for a whole-food, plant-based diet.


PlantPure Nation features interviews with Dr. Michael Greger, Dr. Neal Barnard, and Professor T. Colin Campbell. It also follows Campbell's son, Nelson Campbell, as he attempts to establish a plant-based health initiative in Mebane, North Carolina,[1] after House Bill 550 failed to pass in the Kentucky House of Representatives.[2][3] Bill 550 would have established a two-week plant-based pilot nutrition program in Eastern Kentucky. The Bill described the pilot as "a science-based education component" and that it was "a nationally recognized online nutrition education program."[3][4]


PETA gave the film a positive review stating, "check to see if it’s coming to a theater near you, rent it, purchase it, and share it. Seriously, it’s a really motivational movie."[5] HuffPost's review was similarly positive, stating that the film "presents a compelling case and offers a simple solution to pervasive health conditions such as heart disease, diabetes, and obesity."[6]
