Let your food be your medicine, and your medicine be your food. -Hippocrates

This Sunday, Oct. 9th   at 2 p.m., the Central Library is partnering with Whole Foods to show the film “Forks Over Knives”.  http://www.forksoverknives.com/  This film partnership came about thanks to a neighbor of mine who highly recommended the film and who says that changing his diet has saved his life.  (Stay for the panel discussion after the film to hear more!)

This is not the first food film that JMRL has show in the ongoing documentary film program.  The library also has shown “Fresh” and “Food, Inc.”

As for books on this topic, try:

Forks Over Knives” by Gene Stone, et al.

Why We Get Fat and What to Do about It” by Gary Taubes

The China Study: The Most Comprehensive Study of Nutrition Ever Conducted And the Startling Implications for Diet, Weight Loss, And Long-term Health” by T. Collin Campbell, et al.

We know this is a popular topic and the library wants to hear about other titles you’d suggest on this subject.
