The new documentary PlantPure Nation comes out this July 4 weekend and is being shown in some cites. I have eagerly awaited the cookbook, which is out now. What I didn't realize until I read the introduction to the book was that the film is about Mebane residents.

The program is by Nelson Campbell and Kim Campbell both well known in the field of plant based nutrition.

Nelson's Dad, Dr T. Colin Campbell, is well known for his work, The China Study. I read his book and watched related documentaries such as Forks Over Knives last year and have now been a convert to plant-based nutrition for more than a year, halving my meds for hypertension and type 2 diabetes. I have lost 35 pounds but have much more to lose.

Well, you could have bowled me over with a sneeze when I read some of my nutrition heroes did much of their work in Mebane and had an office on Clay Street.

Go to their website if you are curious and weren't aware as I was not.
