On Tuesday, October 14, 2014 the Wellesley Cancer Prevention Project is excited to
present our Premiere Educational Program for the 2014-2015 Season to the community
for all those who are interested in the environment and its impact on our health.
We will be showing the new film, “Unacceptable Levels” by Ed Brown, excerpt may be accessed here on YouTube @ http://youtu.be/PahlskiY4WA This film was selected for many awards and has been the winner of the International Film Festival’s Filmambiente, Fife and Yosemite Awards. It is highly worth the 75 minutes it takes to watch it in how it can help open our eyes to the unseen chemicals in our home products from shampoo to makeup to beauty products to food that are having an impact on our bodies everyday. As one Amazon.com reviewer stated, “Unacceptable Levels examines the results of the chemical revolution of the 1940′s through the eyes of affable filmmaker Ed Brown, a father seeking to understand the world in which he and his wife are raising their children….he presents us with the story of how the chemical revolution brought us to where we are, and to where, if we’re not vigilant, it may take us.” posted by Compusurge. Ed Brown challenges us to choose one strategy to focus on to make our live’s healthier.
Following the film, there will be a fun presentation by Wellesley’s own Stacy Kennedy MPH, RD, CSO, LDN, who is the full-time Nutrition Expert and Operating Partner at Stacy’s Juice Bar in Needham. Stacy will discuss tips on creative steps that you can take to use food as medicine to hopefully decrease risk of cancer for everyone in your family. She will also demonstrate nutritious juicers and recipes that you can make to create better health everyday.
We hope to see you on Tuesday, October 14, 2014 at The Wellesley Free Library Wakelin Room from 6:30-8:30 pm and get energized for a Fun and Healthy Fall Season!! The Library is located at 530 Washington Street, Wellesley, MA.
