Event description
The Sarasota Vegan Society presents the screening of the documentary "Forks Over Knives".

About this event

This is the first screening of 2022 and it couldn't be a better time. Amidst a pandemic we can prevent or reverse adverse health effects through diet alone. That is the discovery of this great film and what the benefits of converting to a whole food plant-based diet can be like.

We have the pleasure of being hosted again by Fogartyville Media & Arts Center. Doors will open at 6:15 PM. The film will begin by 7 PM. Seats are limited to 60 people.

There is no admission for entry as the event is donation-based.

We plan to have a speaker from the film Zoom in to our conversation. TBD

Summary:

Through an examination of the careers of American physician Caldwell Esselstyn and professor of nutritional biochemistry T. Colin Campbell, Forks Over Knives claims that many diseases, including obesity, cardiovascular diseases, and cancer, can be prevented and treated by eating a whole-food, plant-based diet, avoiding processed food and food from animals.

The film includes an overview of the 20-year China–Cornell–Oxford Project that led to Professor Campbell's findings, outlined in his book The China Study (2005), in which he suggests that coronary artery disease, diabetes, obesity, and cancer can be linked to the Western diet of processed and animal-based foods (including dairy products).
