Both a journey and a saga

Forks Over Knives is a new 96-min documentary film that can save your life and is offered free to everyone.

It will be shown Monday, Jan 16, 2012 at 7:30 p.m. at the Campbell River Community Center 401-11th Av.

The movie is both a journey and a saga.  It features two pioneering health experts who are not afraid to make waves.  Dr. T. Colin Campbell, Ph.D. Nutrition Biochemist Professor Emeritus at the Cornwell University,  author of The China Study, and Dr. Caldwell B. Esselstyne, Jr., M.D.  Director of the Cardiovascular Disease Reversal and Prevention Program at the world renewed Cleveland Clinics Wellness Institute, Author of Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease.

A separate ground breaking research was conducted by both physicians using whole natural food to fend off disease, peel off pounds, and also boost overall health.  The idea of foods as medicine is put to the test.  The story examines that most of the chronic degenerative 20th century killer diseases such as heart disease, Cancer, type 2 diabetes and obesity are food-born and can be controlled or even reversed by what we eat.

Eye opening insights from luminaries such as Dr. Neal Barnard, Dr. John McDougal and Rip Esselstyne, Author of “Engine 2 Diet” are also featured in the movie.

In the foreword of “Forks over Knifes the planet-Bases Way to Health” Edited by Gene Stone, Drs Campbell and Esselstyne Quote: “A seismic revolution in health will not come from a pill, procedure, or operation. It will occur only when the public is endowed with nutritional literacy, the kind of knowledge portrayed in Forks Over Knives.
