The Camden Public Library’s Friday Film Club is planning to meet at 4 p.m. on Friday, January 21 on Zoom to discuss the “Forks Over Knives” and “Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead” films.
Both are documentaries on healthy eating and should be viewed prior to the online discussion.
Forks Over Knives compares the Western diet to that of other countries, which have lower rates of cancer and heart disease. He challenges authorities who seem to ignore the link between meat and dairy consumption and disease in order to protect the status quo in the United States and touts the benefits of plant-based foods, according to a press release from the library. .
“Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead” follows Joe Cross on his journey to find a more natural way to cope with a debilitating autoimmune disease. With doctors and mainstream medicine unable to help him, Cross traded junk food and hit the road with a juicer and generator in tow, promising to drink only fresh fruit and vegetable juices for the rest of the day. 60 days.
