A screening of the documentary film, "Forks Over Knives" is scheduled for Saturday, Nov. 19 at the Norrisville Seventh-day Adventist Church, at 2 p.m.
"Forks Over Knives" takes a look at the epidemic the world faces with degenerative diseases — coronary heart disease, cancer, type 2 diabetes and strokes. It presents the case that these diseases are practically non-existent in societies where the people eat mostly a plant-based, whole foods-type diet.
The film goes on to show that these degenerative diseases can be prevented and even reversed by not eating animal-based and processed foods. The film also explains the damage done to the human body by the popular Western fast-food, animal-based style of eating. In reviewing this film, famed reviewer Roger Ebert of the Chicago Sun Times begins by saying: "Here is a film that could save your life." He continues in the review to say that he believes the story of his own health would have been much different if he had adopted the right kind of a diet much earlier in his life.
"Forks Over Knives" follows the ground-breaking studies and research done by Dr. Colin Campbell and Dr. Caldwell Eselstyn. Other prominent doctors, including Dr. Neil Barnard and Dr. John McDougall, are also featured in this documentary.
There will be no cost for this screening. Those who attend are encouraged to come with an open mind and be prepared to learn some dynamic and challenging information that could greatly improve their own lives, as well as the lives of their family members.
Those who are coming to the screening are also invited to the church dinner at 12:30 p.m., and the Sabbath School and worship service in the morning. (9:45 a.m. and 11 a.m.) The adult class is studying the book of Galatians; classes are also available for their children and older young people. In the worship service, the sermon's theme will be: "Bible Principles for Healthy Living".
