Green Film Series to present documentary on food and health Feb. 19

HOUGHTON -- The Green Film Series will present Forks Over Knives, a film  that examines the profound claim that many of the degenerative diseases that afflict us can be controlled, or even reversed, by rejecting our present menu of animal-based and processed foods. The film features leading experts on health, examines the question "why we don't know," and tackles the issue of diet and disease in new and engaging ways.

The film will be shown from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m., Thursday, Feb. 19, in G002 Hesterberg Hall, Forestry Building at Michigan Tech. Coffee, tea and delicious refreshments will be provided by the Keweenaw Food Co-op.

Ray Sharp from the Community Planning and Preparedness team at the Western U. P. Health Department will lead a discussion after the film. The event is free and open to the public, though donations are appreciated.

The Green Film Series is sponsored by Lake Superior Stewardship Initiative,  Michigan Tech Center for Water and Society, Keweenaw Unitarian Universalist Fellowship and Keweenaw Land Trust.
