  3. PlantPure Nation Film Screening

    October 19, 2019, 3:00 PM - 4:30 PM @ Community Room

    A whole food, plant-based diet has been shown by research to be the optimal diet for health, and not just for preventing disease, but also for reversing chronic conditions like heart disease and type 2 diabetes. Despite spending more money than any other country in the world, American healthcare has failed to stem the rising tide of chronic disease. Its primary weapons, a plethora of pharmaceuticals, mostly focus on symptoms and do not address root causes. Learn about the benefits of a plant-based diet and how communities are using the PlantPure program (non-commercial; no products are for sale) to change our health outcomes. No registration required. No products for sale; not a commercial enterprise. Sponsored by the Mount Dora Library Association. Library sponsorship of a program does not constitute an endorsement of the content of the program or the views expressed by participants.
