[Originally scheduled Special Film Preview of "Peaceable Kingdom" is being moved to a larger venue and will be presented at a later date]
Earthsave dinner events normally meet on last Saturdays, giving people a chance to sample a wonderful variety of tasty vegan cuisine and meet lots of friendly, like-minded people. Saturday, August 25th, 6-9 pm: Veg potluck in Owings Mills, and a viewing of the documentary film "Mad Cowboy." Howard Lyman is the rancher/cowboy/meat-eater turned vegan whose testimony on The Oprah Winfrey Show revealed the deadly impact of the livestock industry on our well-being. It not only led to Oprah's declaration that she'd never eat a burger again, it sent shock waves through a concerned and vulnerable public.
Fourth-generation Montana rancher, Howard Lyman investigated the use of chemicals in agriculture after developing a spinal tumor that nearly paralyzed him. He wound up selling his ranch and embarking on a personal quest to educate and help the public see through the propaganda of beef and dairy interests -- and the government agencies that protect them -- to expose an animal-based diet as the primary cause of cancer, heart disease, and obesity in this country
In this film, Howard tells his fascinating story with down home, countrified humor and anecdotes. And through his interviews with activists, scientists, victims, ranchers, farmers, doctors, and consumers, he warns us about the serious health and safety issues with regard to the livestock industry and of the environmental devastation that we are inviting by continuing to raise and eat so many livestock animals. Please RSVP and join us if you can!
