...then stop it and Kickstart Your Health. In this documentary Dr. Neal Barnard, clinical researcher, physician, one of America's leading advocates for health and  nutrition presents his 21 days program, which is an easy way to trim excess weight, prevent diabetes, cut cholesterol, lower blood pressure and more. Food is our fuel, necessity of our lives but often becomes our toxin.  We can improve our life and our health when we improve our diet by making conscious choices of what we put into our bodies three or more times per day. Is it real food or food like substances? Dr. Barnard's advice is simple. Is it easy? Well...no radical change is easy. It is attainable though one forkful after another...  Join us for the Kickstart Your Health  on Monday, December 17 at 7 pm in the Wolf Performance Hall, which opens a new film series: Your Food, Your Health, Your Life. In the upcoming programs we will learn not only about relationship between food and health but also about impact of our food choices on our environment.
