A health and wellness education program will be held in Loomis next week, with a showing of the movie “Forks Over Knives” and a workshop by one of its stars. According to Cindy Soldano, of Loomis, a well-known naturopath and internationally known health, nutrition and medicine expert, Dr. Pam Popper, will present a 2-hour, bring your own lunch, workshop at 11:45 a.m., Thursday, Dec. 8, at the Flower Farm Events Center, including an introduction to plant-based nutrition and degenerative disease. At 7 p.m., a viewing of “Forks and Knives” will be held at the Del Oro High School Performing Arts Theater, with questions and answers from Popper, who is featured in the film. The film presents evidence that animal-based proteins are at the root of many diseases. Tickets for the film are $5 for adults, and children 12 and under are free. The workshop is $35 if reserved by Dec. 2, and $40 at the door. The events will benefit the Lucas Armand family. Lucas is a Del Oro freshman who suffered sudden cardiac arrest in September and remains hospitalized. The venues were donated, as were services from Del Oro staff and students.
