Our community is in dire need of a roadmap to a sustainable, healthier lifestyle. Just look at local obesity rates: 37.5% of Nova Scotia’s adults are overweight, and more than half of youth are overweight or obese. On January 25, two acclaimed personalities are in Nova Scotia to talk about the connection between these alarming stats and the food we eat.
Dr. William Davis, bestselling author of Wheat Belly, and Jeremy Seifert, Director of the film GMO OMG both reveal unsettling facts about the grains that have become the foundation of our food supply.
The ideas in NY Times Best Seller Wheat Belly represent a radical shift in the way we view food and a proactive approach to health and wellness. Many of the revelations are shocking and controversial. In this brand new presentation, Dr. Davis takes the conversation even further toward true health empowerment.
GMO OMG is a film that is winning documentary awards around the world. Prior to a screening of the film, Nova Scotia TV personality Nancy Regan will facilitate a conversation between Dr. Davis and filmmaker Jeremy Seifert. They will share their unique take on the truth about our food supply and also talk about an upcoming film project with strong Halifax connections.
