“Eating You Alive” is a new, feature-length documentary revealing the truth behind why Americans are so sick and what we can do about it. Monday, December 12th, 7:30pm at The Cinema Arts Centre. A reception will follow.
From their website:
Half of all adults in the U.S. struggle with chronic health conditions including cancer, heart disease, stroke, diabetes, obesity, hypertension, Alzheimer’s, arthritis and erectile dysfunction.
Despite countless dollars spent on medical research, new drugs and innovative technology to improve our health, more Americans are disabled and dying from chronic disease than ever before.
Featuring leading medical experts and researchers, Eating You Alive takes a scientific look at the reasons we’re so sick, who’s responsible for feeding us the wrong information and how we can use whole-food, plant-based nutrition to take control of our health—one bite at a time.
A link to purchase tickets will be posted shortly.
