I think that the secret is out: if you don’t eat healthy food, your body will pay the price.

But as easy as making healthy choices sounds, few understand just how difficult it really is to get the right food on your plate. Hence the need for Chow Down, a new documentary that seeks to expose the three main factors to our country’s health downfall: the government’s backing of the food industry, the medical community simply going along with the status quo, and our addiction to cheap, convenient food.

The documentary follows Charles, a married 45-year-old and father of two who is shocked into action after learning that he has cardiovascular disease and the blockages in his heart are so severe that his surgeon refuses to operate. Charles decides to take control of his life, and try to reverse his prognosis through changing his diet from unhealthy to “plant-based.”

He does this with the help of Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn, who is the director of one of the longest-running studies attempting to prove that a plant-based diet can reverse even late stage heart disease.

The film seems truly needed and eye opening, and may serve as a wake up call to those behind the medical industry.

And if you live in New York then you are officially invited to a private screening of the movie! The screening starts at 7:30 p.m. and will be followed by a Q&A (with our very own Ecorazzi Senior Editor, Michael Parish DuDell) and cocktails! How fun! It’s taking place on Tuesday, Feb. 8th at the Tribeca Grand Hotel, and make sure to reserve a space at RSVP@chowdownscreening.com.
