"Forks Over Knives" comes to Lawrence!
You are what you eat, right? We all know this, but do we adhere to that bit of wisdom? Probably not. Two out of every three of us are overweight, many dangerously so. Yet we live in one of the most advanced civilizations on the planet. How could it be that we're killing ourselves with food?
"Forks Over Knives" strives to answer that question. The film, which has taken its grassroots campaign to theaters across the country, examines how we got this way and discusses research that indicates that not only can we prevent the "diseases of affluence" we can reverse them too.
