Simply Raw kicks off 2009-2010 TorontotheBetter movie series

On Oct. 27th TorontotheBetter kicked off its 2009-2010 movie series with a successful screening of Simply Raw: Reversing Diabetes in 30 Days, which showed what happened when 6 diabetics took up the challenge of the Dr. Gabriel Cousens' "Tree of Life Rejuvenation Centre" to go cold turkey onto raw food for 30 days. While the flick is a feelgood vindication of the Tree of Life method - hint: noone's diabetes got worse with less insulin (understatement) - it certainly got the audience thinking about the practical consequences for their body of the type of food they eat. Thanks to Nutritionist Lisa Villary who answered questions from the audience about things like "Are there any obese vegans?" One audience member confirmed that yes, it's possible! Watch how much you eat, not just what.

The next TorontotheBetter movie is Pedal Power [about biking in Toronto] on Tuesday Nov.24th, again at OISE. of course, its not enough just to eat as well as we saw in Simply Raw; we have to exercise. TorontotheBetter movies build relevant life skills, obviously! Movie co-director Chris Sumton will be on hand, with a speaker from Toronto's Community Bicycle network, to answer questions.
