Dr. Spitz Appears In New Film, The Game Changers
IRVINE, Calif. (September 16, 2019) –The much-anticipated vegan documentary The Game Changers premiered in more than 1,000 theaters worldwide during a one-day global event on September 16.
The film–executively produced by legends such as Arnold
Schwarzenegger, director James Cameron (Terminator, Titanic,
Avatar), Jackie Chan and Pamela Anderson–sheds light on the game-changing effects of a plant-based diet in elite sports.
With the aim of dispelling the myth that consumption of animal products is key for athletic performance, the film follows elite athletes that have thrived on a plant-based diet.
The documentary, which first debuted last year at the Sundance Film Festival, includes testimonials and highlights of game-changing athletes such as champion bodybuilder Arnold Schwarzenegger, Olympic cyclist Dotsie Bausch, German strongman Patrik Baboumian, and a slew of NFL players, among others, alongside doctors who demonstrate the performance advantages of consuming a plant-based diet.
For its second cut, the film added martial arts legend Jackie Chan, NBA player Chris Paul, tennis star Novak Djokovic, and world race car champion Lewis Hamilton.
OCUA’s Dr. Aaron Spitz is featured in the film conducting an experiment to see if just one meal can affect sexual function. “We fed elite college athletes meat burritos for dinner one night and vegan burritos for dinner another night and measured their erections while they slept: how many, how long and how hard. The results were amazing!”
“At the world premiere at the Sundance Film Festival, many commented that this scene may prove to be the most important endorsement of a vegan diet since it really hits home for so many guys,” Dr. Spitz said.
