Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead (2010) Friday, August 26, 7:30 p.m.: 100 pounds overweight, loaded up on steroids, and suffering from a debilitating autoimmune disease, Joe Cross trades in the junk food and hits the road, vowing to drink only fresh fruit and vegetable juice for 60 days. At a truck stop in Arizona, Joe meets Phil, a 429-pound truck driver who suffers from the same rare condition. The chance meeting results in an inspiring tale of healing and human connection.
Forks Over Knives (2011) Saturday, August 27, 7:30 p.m. (Rated PG): This documentary examines the profound claim that most, if not all, of the so-termed “diseases of affluence” that afflict us can be controlled, or even reversed, by rejecting our present menu of animal-based and processed foods.
The Mershad Digital Experience is made possible through the generous support of the Mershad Family Foundation with additional support from Abercrombie & Fitch.
The McCoy Center is at 100 W. Dublin-Granville Road, New Albany. For more information, visit www.McCoyCenter.org
