From my friends at Independent Science News:
Upcoming Film Event, this Thursday:
Forks Over Knives Screening at Kaufmann Auditorium (G64 Goldwin-Smith Hall) Cornell University
In the presence of Dr. T. Colin Campbell (Jacob Gould Schurman Prof. Emeritus, Cornell)
Time: Thursday 6th February 7pm
Dr. Campbell is the author of two New York Times Bestselling books: The China Study (2005) and Whole (2013).
Forks over Knives follows the stories of Campbell’s research and Esselstyn’s patients who were diagnosed with a wide range of ailments including cancer, diabetes and heart disease who miraculously recovered simply by switching to a plant-based, whole food diet. “A film that can save your life” – Roger Ebert
This event is organised by the students of Cornell’s Food and Agriculture Critical Thinking (FACT) club and Independent Science News.
Please share this information. The movie is free and open to the public.
This just in from Food Not Bombs Ithaca! Please donate if you can, or pass this on to people who can donate, if you can’t. Thanks!
This Saturday, as many of you probably know, Watermargin will be hosting a teach in on Antifascism in Greece and Europe. Ithaca’s Food Not Bombs chapter will be providing dinner for the attendees, and we’ve been out of commission for a while, so we’re going to need to rustle up some food in time for the event. If anyone has anything they’d like to donate in support- staples such as rice or flour, spices, herbs – or can contribute knowhow as to where we might be able to get food, it’d be greatly appreciated! Any interested parties can contact me at 508-395-9802. Love and Solidarity, Sophie Griswold – svg6 at cornell.edu
