PLANEAT film and cake stall

There will be a free screening of the documentary film PLANEAT, about what we eat and its effect on our health and the environment, at the University on Wednesday 14 March.

PLANEAT is the story of three men's life-long search for a diet which is good for our health, good for the environment and good for the future of the planet.

With an additional cast of pioneering chefs and some of the best cooking you have ever seen, the scientists and doctors in the film present a convincing case for the West to re-examine its love affair with meat and dairy.  The film features the ground-breaking work of Dr. T Colin Campbell in China, exploring the link between diet and disease, Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn's use of diet to treat heart disease patients, and Professor Gidon Eshel's investigations into how our food choices contribute to global warming, land use and oceanic deadzones.

With the help of some innovative farmers and chefs, PLANEAT shows how the problems we face today can be solved, without simply resorting to a diet of lentils and lettuce leaves
