Food on Films Movie Night: Food Matters

Tacoma Food Co-op invites the public to our screening of Food Matters as part of our Food on Films Series.

“Let thy Food be thy Medicine and thy Medicine be thy Food.” That is the message from the founding father of modern medicine echoed in the controversial new documentary film Food Matters from Producer-Directors James Colquhoun and Laurentine ten Bosch.

With nutritionally-depleted foods, chemical additives and our tendency to depend on pharmaceutical drugs to treat what’s wrong with our unhealthy bodies, it’s no wonder that modern society is getting sicker. Food Matters sets about uncovering the trillion dollar worldwide ‘sickness industry’ and gives people some scientifically verifiable solutions for overcoming illness naturally. With access to better information people invariably make better choices for their health.

“James and Laurentine provide a radiant beacon of hope with steps you can do today to take control of your health and begin healing,” says renowned natural health physician Joseph Mercola about the film.

The focus of the film is in helping society rethink the belief systems fed to people by America’s modern medical and health care establishments. The interviewees point out that not every problem requires costly, major medical attention and reveal many alternative ways that can be more effective, more economical, less harmful and less invasive than conventional medical treatments.

Food on Films Movie Night will take place April 23 at 7 p.m. at University of Puget Sound in McIntyre Hall in Rausch Auditorium. Admission to the event is free to the public.
