On Wednesday, August 6, 2008, Orthomolecular Health presented the Toronto premiere of the documentary, Food Matters at Toronto's Bloor Cinema. Attendance at the show was fantastic-over 600 people-and long lines formed for many blocks along Bloor Street.
After patrons settled in with their organic "Passion Popcorn" from Nature's Way, they were inspired by filmmakers James Colquhoun and Laurentine ten Bosch's impassioned vision of the simplicity of natural food-based health, and shocked at the current toxi-molecular medical paradigm which sickens more than it cures.
Orthomolecular health care experts Andrew Saul, PhD, Ian Brighthope, MD, David Wolfe, Charlotte Gerson, Victor Zeines and others extolled the benefits of vitamin supplementation and increasing raw, plant-based foods in our diet, a strategy which naturally brings the whole body back to health as opposed to the one drug, one disease way of orthodox medicine. It was clear that the audience loved what they saw and were captured for the entirety of the documentary.
Afterwards, many hands were raised during the question and answer period which featured Andrew Saul PhD, Julie Daniluk, (CHFA), Shawn O'Reilly, (CAND) and Iva Llyod, ND. Overall the evening was a great success as hundreds of people were given a powerful introduction to the promise of lifelong health through orthomolecular nutrition.
