Movie - Forks Over Knives in Shirlington

FORKS OVER KNIVES at AMC Lowes Shirlington 7 Movie Theater

MAY 21 at 7:00 pm (movie start is 7:50 pm)

The movie argues that when we choose to remove or greatly reduce the amount of food we consume that requires knives to eat (like meat) and reconfigure our plates to be plant-strong, we can avoid going under the knife for things like by-pass surgery. Dr. Oz, who will feature the makers and key contributors to Forks Over Knives on his April 27th show, touts the film’s message that we can avoid heart disease, cancer and Type II diabetes simply by changing what we eat as “the Hail-Mary of medicine.”

The movie features Caldwell Esselstyn Jr., M.D., author of Reversing Heart Disease and member of the Whole Foods Market scientific medical advisory board and T. Colin Campbell, PhD, author of The China Study. Healthy Eating partner Rip Esselstyn, founder and author of the Engine 2 Diet, makes an appearance as well, and asserts why real men eat plants. This film is a powerful companion to Whole Foods Market’s Health Starts Here education programs and supports our Engine 2 message of eating plant-strong™.

    Hi! Is there a way I could purchase tickets in advance for this event? If so, should I purchase them for the 7 pm show time?
