The highly anticipated plant-based documentary Eating You Alive will play on more than 560 screens across the United States April 5th!.

This feature-length documentary looks at why so many Americans are in ill-health – and how that can be changed.

Half of all adults in the U.S. struggle with chronic health conditions including cancer, heart disease, stroke, diabetes, obesity, hypertension, Alzheimer’s, arthritis and erectile dysfunction.

Despite countless dollars spent on medical research, new drugs and innovative technology to improve our health, more Americans are disabled and dying from chronic disease than ever before.

Featuring leading medical experts and researchers, Eating You Alive takes a scientific look at the reasons we’re so sick, who’s responsible for feeding us the wrong information and how we can use whole-food, plant-based nutrition to take control of our health—one bite at a time.  (Watch the trailer)

Join us Thursday, April 5 at 7:00pm. Tickets are $12 and are on sale now!!
