What the Health is a ground breaking feature length documentary that follows the exciting journey of an intrepid filmmaker, Kip Andersen, as he uncovers the impacts of highly processed industrial animal foods has on our personal health and  greater community, and explores why leading health organizations continue to promote the industry despite countless medical studies and research.

What separates this film from others on this topic, is that it explores not only the relation of this industry to personal health, but then also how this industry is connected to everything from the pharmaceutical industry, the medical industry, health organizations, and even the government, and how it effects those communities that live next to the production of their products.
