Encore showing of 'Forks Over Knives' at Unity on Nov. 18

Due to the large turnout and positive response to Unity’s presentation of “Forks Over Knives” in September, a second showing has been scheduled. This groundbreaking film will be screened again on Friday, Nov. 18, at Unity Spiritual Center in Westlake.

If you missed this film last time or simply wish to see it again, plan to be there! A special attraction this time will be a drawing for two $20 gift certificates to Nature’s Bin, which will be providing snacks after the film. To be entered in the drawing you must be one of the first forty people to buy advance tickets. Tickets are $5 and can be ordered online through unityhallpresents.com or by calling Unity at 440-835-0400. Tickets will also be sold at the door for the same price.

“Forks Over Knives” examines the profound claim that most, if not all, 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 focuses on the studies of two doctors, T. Colin Campbell, a nutritional biochemist from Cornell University, and Caldwell Esselstyn, a former top surgeon at the world-renowned Cleveland Clinic.

Their separate research led them to the same startling conclusion: degenerative diseases like heart disease, Type 2 diabetes, and even several forms of cancer, could almost always be prevented – and in many cases reversed – by adopting a whole foods, plant-based diet.

Bay Village resident Jennifer Warden, founder of the health blog Vegi Couture has expressed her unwavering belief in these findings. “As a woman who has experienced serious illness (cancer, diabetes, high cholesterol) nothing has made more of a difference in my health than a plant-powered diet," she said.

"It’s truly incredible how immediate and far reaching the results of this lifestyle are. My medication is all but gone, my energy is through the roof, and did I mention that I lost 50 pounds. Nothing short of incredible.”

Both Ms. Warden and Jim White, a Unity member who has tirelessly promoted this film, will speak briefly before the showing. Presentation will begin at 7 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 18, at Unity Spiritual Center, 23855 Detroit Rd., just west of Clague Road in Westlake.
