Diet Power - Forks over Knives

Are you getting your protein from meat? Is milk your source of calcium? Can diet be the solution to serious health problems? Join us for the screening  Forks over Knives on Thursday, October 25 at 6:30 pm in the Wolf Performance Hall in Central Library.  This great documentary features Dr. Campbell, a nutritional scientist at Cornell University and Dr. Esselstyn, a top surgeon and head of the Breast Cancer Task Force at the world-renowned Cleveland Clinic who didn't know each other when were conducting several groundbreaking studies. Both came to the same, startling conclusions that most, if not all, of the degenerative diseases that afflict us can be controlled, or even reversed, by diet. Cameras follow also some "reality patients" with chronic conditions. Come and bring your nutrition related questions. Dr. Matthew Lederman, who is also featured in the documentary will be available for questions through Skype, after the screening .
