Forks And Knives

When: Event has passed. Watch this page for updates.
Where: The Linda WAMC's Performing Arts Studio
Cost: $6.00
Forks and Knives, a 2011 American documentary, asks the question: just how much of our own health can be controlled by diet alone? Apparently, quite a lot, according to the researchers and physicians featured in this hard-hitting, revealing film that may change your entire outlook on how you eat. Tracing the careers and research of American physician Caldwell Esselstyn and nutritionist/biochemist T. Colin Campbell, the film makes the profound claim that most, if not all, of the major degenerative diseases - heart disease, diabetes, cancer - can be controlled or even reversed by consuming an exclusively plant-based, preservative-free diet.
 
The title, "Forks Over Knives," refers to the idea that it's preferable to maintain our health through diet than through medical intervention and surgery. Highlighted by the personal stories of real individuals who have made the switch from an animal-based diet to the "Forks Over Knives" regimen, this film will challenge your ideas of a "healthy diet," and may even have you considering some lifestyle changes. See this film before your next bacon, egg and cheese croissant.
 
Food For Thought is a monthly evening of food, film and discussion with a focus on films of social, political, environmental and community interest. Held on the third Thursday of each month, the night will feature food samples by Honest Weight Food Co-op, a feature film screening, and an open panel discussion.
