The Center for Disease Control reports that nearly half the population in the United States of America lives with at least one chronic disease. These diseases are the leading cause of death and disability. They are also the most costly and preventable of all health conditions in the country. It is imperative that we start changing our food culture now. 'Food As Medicine' follows the growing movement of using food to heal chronic disease. From individuals empowering themselves to change what is on their plates, to hospital groups administering vegetable Rx programs, we can already see the change happening around us. Join us on the journey of food, health, community and hope!
Please be advised that although we feel there are important messages in this film, we also acknowledge that there may be conflicting ideologies that challenge beliefs. We like to encourage our viewers to do their own diligent research to determine which is the right approach for them as we regard nutrition and health as being highly individualized and not a ‘one size fits all’ approach.
