Dr. Caleen Burke spoke about Dr. Colin Campbell, who led the China Study.

Watch the short video of Forks Over Knives that we showed about Dr. Campbell’s findings on the link between diet and cancer.
Burke Eyecare showed a video from the Physicians for Medicine Committee. Responsible for Geico employees who changed their lifestyle and dramatic health experiments.

After the health talk, Dr. Caleen Burke conducted a cooking demonstration rich in fiber, full of whole grains, rich in nutrients and free of saturated fats and cholesterol.
Dr. Caleen Burke had a volunteer to help demonstrate the making of cashew cheese.
Everyone tried the tortillas.
