Film Showing: Forks Over Knives

“Forks Over Knives” traces the journeys of a nutritional biochemist and a former top surgeon who conducted several groundbreaking studies. Research led them to the same conclusion: degenerative diseases like heart disease, type-2 diabetes, and several forms of cancer could be prevented or reversed by adopting a whole-foods, plant-based diet. The idea of food as medicine is put to the test. Cameras follow "reality patients" who have chronic conditions, such as heart disease and diabetes. Doctors teach these patients how to adopt a healthy diet, while the challenges and triumphs of their journeys are revealed.

Length: 96 minutes; Director: Lee Fulkerson
