Join us Saturday, June 6th from 1:30 pm - 3:30 pm at the Mamaroneck Public Library,136 Prospect Ave, Mamaroneck, NY 10543 www.mamaronecklibrary.org.

Learn about the benefits of a Whole Food Plant Based Lifestyle and how you can take control of your health destiny. This lecture expands on the research presented in the film "Forks Over Knives", which can be checked out through the library or found on Netflix or Amazon.

Forks Over Knives (www.forksoverknives.com) is a powerful film that examines the profound claim that most, if not all, of the degenerative diseases that afflict us can be controlled, or even reversed, by rejecting animal-based and processed foods.

These presentations are by Jeanne Schumacher, Ed.D. Her objective is to make people aware that they can take many aspects of their health destiny into their own hands by consuming a whole food plant based diet.

Schumacher is trying to organize a local grass roots movement.  Her first stop is to organize some restaurants to create a menu that would feature a special section for Whole Food Plant Based offerings.  She would also like these restaurants to feature some of their food at her presentations for patrons to try! 

Passage to India, 17 E Main St, Mount Kisco, NY-10549. Tel: (914) 244-9595 is already on board and has created a separate menu that patrons can request!

Another part of her grass roots movement is to try and find a doctor who is interested in adding this as a choice in his/her practice. She would also like to begin a support group as well!

The next film, Plant Pure Nation (www.plantpurenation.com), will be released on July 4th, with a premier at the Bow Tie Cinema in NYC (Chelsea) on Sunday, May 3rd at 2:00 pm. This movie tells the story of three people on a quest to spread the message of one of the most important health breakthroughs of all time. When nutritional scientist and author T. Colin Campbell inspires Kentucky State Representative Tom Riner to propose a pilot program documenting the health benefits of a plant-based diet, they inadvertently set in motion a series of events that expose powerful forces opposed to the diet. When industry lobbyists kill the pilot program, Dr. Campbellā€™s oldest son Nelson decides to try his own grassroots approach in his hometown of Mebane, North Carolina.
