VIRGIL FILMS & ENTERTAINMENT PRESENTS AN EXPOSE ON AMERICA'S NUMBER ONE KILLER
Uncover The Astounding Causes of Heart Disease, Learn Prevention Methods and Reverse the Deadly Disease
Available Nationwide on DVD July 27th
New York City (July 13, 2010) - While cardiovascular disease accounts for approximately 81.1 million adults in America*, Virgil Films & Entertainment is taking initiative to keep America healthy with the nationwide debut, Chow Down. Following the same vein as Super Size Me, The Future of Food, and Food Inc., the informative documentary features in-depth conversations with the leading medical experts in the country including: Neal Barnard, MD, T. Colin Campbell, PhD, and David Katz, MD, MPH, to name a few. Honing in on the deadly disease, Chow Down unearths astounding causes, presents substantiated prevention methods and ways to reverse the disease, even for cases in their late stages.
While presenting real cases the film uncovers the three factors that fatally impact our country's health: the medical community's allegiance to the status quo, the government's allegiance to the food industry, and American's allegiance to cheap, convenient food.
Chow Down will make its nationwide debut with the DVD premiere on July 27th, by Virgil Films & Entertainment, and includes the bonus features: Extended Interviews, Extended Scenes, and a Healthy Recipe from Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn, MD.
Directed by Julia Grayer and Gage Johnston, Chow Down presents smart savvy preventions for today's most critical cases, in order to kick the disease and maintain a healthy lifestyle. With only moderate changes, simple food choices and the help of expert leading advice, viewers can fight back and reduce the risk of heart disease.
Chow Down features interviews with: Hans Diehl, DrHSc, MPH (Coronary Health Improvement Project), Caldwell Esselstyn Jr., MD (Cleveland Clinic and author of Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease: The Revolutionary, Scientifically Proven, Nutrition-Based Cure), Joel Fuhrman, MD (author of Eat To Live: The Revolutionary Plan for Fast and Sustained Weight Loss), Michael Jacobson, Phd (Center for Science in the Public Interest), Luise Light, MS, EdD (Dietary Guidance and Nutrition Education Research), and Michele Simon, JD, MPH (author of Appetite for Profit: How The Food Industry Undermines Our Health and How to Fight Back).
*According to American Heart Association statistics, about 81.1 million adults, or one out of every three people in America, have at least one type of CVD, such as heart attack, stroke or heart failure.
