To the Journal editor:
I am writing today because the local non-profit group Northern Vegans is presenting a free showing of the film Vegucated on Nov. 7 at 7 p.m. at the Country Village Cinema V in Ishpeming.
"Vegucated" won several film festival awards including the Toronto Independent Film Festival award in 2011.
This film is about three people from New York City who agree to adopt a vegan diet for 6 weeks and get educated or "vegucated" about why people choose to go vegan.
You will meet a single woman with two kids, a bachelor in his 30s and a young woman who still lives at home, each of whom know little to nothing about the vegan diet and lifestyle and eat what is considered the standard American diet.
This movie is engaging, entertaining, and offers a wealth of information in which Alex Jamieson who co-starred in the well renowned film SuperSize Me says "'Vegucated' is like 'Super Size Me 2.'" What the average American can do to transform their health in reverse of what Morgan did eating fast food for 30 days.
Learn more about how your food choices can have a profound impact on your personal health, the animals of this world, and the environment. Please join Northern Vegans for this free presentation that is only 77 minutes in length. Northern Vegans will also be offering some free door prizes, including a vegan cookbook.
