September Dinner and A Movie at Orchid Gourmet

Through some of the world’s most renowned experts on nutrition, health and medicine, the documentary film PlantPure Nation looks at the powerful healing and health benefits of a whole foods plant-based diet.

Dr. Colin Campbell, a biochemist and author of over 300 research papers and three books, including the famous, The China Study, strongly advocates for a whole foods plant-based vegan diet to prevent cancer, heart disease, stroke, diabetes, and many chronic metabolic diseases. Dr. Campbell was featured in the 2011 American documentary, Forks Over Knives, and also appears in this film with his son Nelson.

The film recounts how Nelson worked with Kentucky State Representative Tom Riner to propose a pilot project on the health benefits of a plant-based diet to the Kentucky State legislature. Kentucky has some of the highest rates of childhood obesity, heart attacks, strokes, and diabetes in the nation. But industry lobbyists supporting animal agriculture and large food corporations crushed the bill immediately. Some time later, Dr. Campbell and Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn present their research on plant-based nutrition to the Kentucky State legislature, which becomes the foundation for a new bill, but once again the bill is all but destroyed by the politicians supporting the meat, dairy, packaged and fast food industries.
