For years, we have been told that type 2 diabetes, liver and heart disease are caused by eating too much. In this PBS documentary, Dr. Robert Lustig shares his theories about why the problem lies more with the quality of the food we eat than the quantity. He explains that he sees the real culprit as processed food, which is typically loaded with added sugar and stripped of its natural fiber and nutrients.  Please join us for this provocative film which takes on America’s eating habits.

The documentary screening will be followed by a panel discussion with:
