Ashland – The Ashland Documentary Film & Discussion Series will present a talk on film, “The Healing Power of Food” with Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn, Thursday, August 14, 7-9 p.m., in the Community Room of Ashland Library, 66 Front St. Admission is free. Viewers are invited to stay for discussion and to bring recipes to share at this supportive, inspirational and life-changing series.

 

In The Healing Power of food, Dr. Esselstyn presents his experience reversing heart disease, which is the leading cause of death among both men and women in the United States. It is unknown among the few indigenous people who follow traditional diet and lifestyle.

 

The summer food and health films are co-sponsored by the Ashland Farmers Market. The Documentary Film & Discussion Series meets every 2nd Thursday and 4th Tuesday of the month for an in-depth look at important topics of our day. The moderated discussions are often lively and thought provoking. All points of view are welcomed.
