The Documentaries On Netflix You Need To Watch Right Now For Your Health And The Planet

We're in a moment of crisis and there is no one size fits all solution. We need to educate ourselves on the choices we make every day so that we can live our best lives and protect the planet to the best of our ability. We need to wake-up. We need to question those in power. We need to be our own advocate and fight.


Below are some great documentaries available on Netflix that you can watch right now to start learning and then start doing. Have a favorite that I missed? Let me know in the comments!



What The Health

Filmmaker Kip Andersen uncovers the secret to preventing and even reversing chronic diseases, and he investigates why the nation's leading health organizations doesn't want people to know about it.




The Milk System

There's one thing milk stands for - health. It's seen as natural and nutrient-rich. But is it really that healthy? We set out to take a critical look at the milk system. Along the way we'll meet farmers, dairy owners, politicians, lobbyists, NGOs, scientists. The film uncovers surprising truths behind the system. Who profits at whose cost? Does the system have a future and are there alternatives?




Cowspiracy

A feature length environmental documentary, following an intrepid filmmaker as he uncovers the most destructive industry facing the planet today and investigates why the world's leading environmental organizations are too afraid to talk about it.




Forks Over Knives

The feature film Forks Over Knives examines the profound claim that most, if not all, of the degenerative diseases that afflict us can be controlled, or even reversed, by rejecting animal-based and processed foods.




Heal

Director Kelly Noonan Gores' documentary takes us on a scientific and spiritual journey where we discover that our thoughts, beliefs, and emotions have a huge impact on our health and ability to heal. The latest science reveals that we are not victims of unchangeable genes, nor should we buy into a scary prognosis. The fact is we have more control over our health and life than we have been taught to believe.




The C Word

This documentary about cancer contains two narratives: one from celebrated French neuroscientist and cancer revolutionary Dr. David Servan-Schreiber, the other from film's director, Meghan L. O'Hara. After braving the journey from diagnosis to wellness, Meghan and David join forces to expose systematic failings in our society, which reinforce the bad habits that predispose us to disease.




Our Planet

The series addresses issues of conservation while featuring these disparate animals in their respective home regions, and has been noted for its greater focus on humans' impact on the environment than traditional nature documentaries; centering around how climate change impacts all living creatures. It marked the first nature documentary Netflix has ever made.




Other great documentaries that used to be on Netflix and may hopefully return!
