CALENDAR LISTINGS FOR Tuesday, February
BRATTLEBORO Climate Cafe Screens "Secret Ingredients": This film by Amy Hart and Jeffrey Smith shares remarkable stories of people who regain their health after discovering ingredients in their food and making a bold commitment to avoid them. These secret ingredients may be a lead driver of our obesity, infertility, cancer, digestive problems, autism, brain fog, skin conditions, gluten sensitivity, allergies, fatigue, anxiety, more. Meet over a dozen people who turned around serious health conditions after adopting a diet that avoids genetically modified organisms (GMOs) and food sprayed with toxic herbicides like Roundup. Learn from leading physicians who say these are not coincidences. They see illness and recovery like this every day in their practice. And listen to scientists who explain why. These are powerful stories of people who regained their health after changing to an all organic diet, free of GMOs/Roundup/other toxic pesticides. Skin and digestive conditions disappear, cancer patients now have a clean bill of health, autistic children are thriving, infertile couples have healthy babies. Lori Schreier, local organic farmer/owner of Fertile Fields Farm, hosts a group sharing afterwards. Light refreshments. 6 p.m. (4th Tuesday of every month). Free.
