This program will examine the negative health effects of sugar and how the sugar industry covered up this information. It will consist of:

 

--Screening of an award-winning documentary, Sugar Coated
--Panel discussion

 

Film description: Sugar Coated shows how sugar escaped scrutiny as a leading cause of obesity, diabetes and heart disease. It introduces a cast of alarmed experts, who collectively try to reverse this trend that threatens the health of the nation.

 

Sunday, June 7th, 2-6pm at Arts HUB (420 Courtney Way, Lafayette, CO)

 

TOPIC: HEALTH AND ATHLETIC BENEFITS OF A VEGAN DIET

 

This program will examine the impact of a vegan diet on athletic performance and recovery and on overall health. It will consist of:

 

--Screening of an acclaimed documentary, The Game Changers
--Panel discussion
--Vegan food and nutrition fair

 

Film description: Executive produced by James Cameron, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Jackie Chan, The Game Changers follows James Wilks — elite Special Forces trainer and winner of The Ultimate Fighter — when he discovers a group of world-renowned athletes and scientists who show him that most of what he’d been taught about protein was a lie. The Game Changers mixes real-time, groundbreaking science with cinematic stories of struggle and triumph. Wilks’ journey exposes outdated myths about food that not only affect human performance, but the health of the entire global population.
