Description

Can a high-fat, low-carb diet prevent and even cure illnesses like cancer, diabetes, heart disease, and autism? “The Magic Pill”— an Australian documentary thinks so.

The film, from celebrity chef Pete Evans, suggests that the modern diet is to blame for the majority of chronic diseases, an idea that has critics slamming the film for peddling “harmful” ideas.

“The Magic Pill” follows people in America and Australia suffering from different ailments to explore what effect, if any, the ketogenic diet has on their symptoms. The ketogenic, or keto diet, is a high-fat, low-carb diet that encourages your body to use fat for fuel instead of carbs.

Agenda:

19:00 - 19:15 Welcome

19:15 - 21:00 Screening of the Magic Pill including a 15-minute intermission

21:00 - 22:00 Question and Answer session with Dominick Hussey, Functional Medicine Practitioner, and Dr Eric Viegas, Naturopathic Doctor.
