Documentary on science and food


“Fat Chance,” a film about the science behind food, will be screened as part of the Friends of the Ashland Public Library’s Documentary Film and Discussion Series Thursday at 7 p.m. in the library’s community room. In the documentary, Dr. Robert Baron examines the principles of a healthy diet, looking at the intersection between nutrition and medicine, and describes what medical professionals know about diet and health and the diseases that are linked to what people eat. The program is free; attendees are invited to stay after the film for a discussion. For more information, visit the Friends’ website at www.friendsoftheapl.com
