"Forks Over Knives" - Movie Screening @ Bernardsville Library

Come to Bernardsville Public Library on Sunday, September 30 at 2:00 pm to see a free screening of the documentary film "Forks Over Knives" in the library's Community Room. Focusing on research by two food scientists, "Forks Over Knives" reveals that despite broad advances in medical technology, the popularity of animal-based and modern processed foods have led to epidemic rates of obesity, diabetes and other diseases.

Chicago Sun-Times reviewer Roger Ebert described the movie as "a film that can save your life.” It 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 major storyline in the film traces the personal journeys of a pair of pioneering researchers, Dr. T. Colin Campbell, now Cornell Emeritus Professor of nutritional science, and Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn, a physician at the world-renowned Cleveland Clinic. Their research led them to a 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. "Forks Over Knives" will introduce viewers to the 'plant-strong' movement, something that may change the way they eat, look, and feel.

The 96-minute film will be followed by a Q & A session with the nutrient rich lifestyle expert, John Allen Mollenhauer. Plant-strong food samples will be served.

There is no charge to attend the program, but advance sign-up is requested. Register online at and follow the link from Adult Programs, or call the library at 908-766-0118 to sign up.
