FORKS OVER KNIVES examines the claim that most, if not all, degenerative diseases can be controlled, or even reversed, by rejecting our present menu of animal-based and processed foods and adopting a whole-foods plant-based diet. The film traces the personal journeys of two physician-researchers*—T. Colin Campbell and Caldwell Esselstyn. The filmmakers travel with Drs. Campbell and Esselstyn on their separate but similar paths then their partnership of exploring ideas that challenged established thinking, including their own. The film also features other leading experts on health, who discuss the issue of diet and disease.

*T. Colin Campbell is an American biochemist and professor of nutritional biochemistry at Cornell University. Campbell conducted the China-Oxford-Cor­­nell study, which fol­lowed millions of Chinese over decades and found that increases in their incidence of cancer and heart disease directly paralleled their adoption of a Western diet. Caldwell Blakeman Esselstyn Jr. is an American surgeon and former Olympic rowing champion. He is a “leading proponent” in the field of plant-based diets.

The movie will screen again on Monday, March 17 at 7 pm at CPCL at the Church of the Nazarene, 9704 Rhode Island Ave., North College Park.
