Documentary Film Screening: Forks Over Knives
Sept. 25th, 7pm - Completed
5475 Spring Garden Rd. National Film Board, 2nd floor
"FORKS OVER KNIVES examines the profound claim that most, if not all, of the degenerative diseases that afflict us can be controlled, or even reversed, by rejecting our present menu of animal-based and processed foods. The major storyline in the film traces the personal journeys of a pair of pioneering yet under-appreciated researchers, Dr. T. Colin Campbell and Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn."
