In honor of Diabetes Awareness Month, Caldwell University will host a screening of the critically acclaimed documentary "Fed Up," Nov. 19 from 7 to 9:30 p.m.
OffTheScale, a high-intensity health and wellness program that is designed to slow, stop and reverse chronic diseases such as diabetes and obesity, will present the screening at Caldwell University.
"Fed Up" examines America's obesity epidemic and the food industry's role in aggravating it by overlooking large quantities of sugar in processed foods. To prove this growing concern, "Fed Up" points to the lobbying power of "Big Sugar" in blocking attempts to enact policies to address the issue.
The screening will be followed by a question-and-answer session with Jay Cardiello, the celebrity fitness trainer of Jennifer Lopez, Ryan Seacrest and 50 Cent.
The event is free and open to the public, and it will take place at Caldwell University located at 120 Bloomfield Ave.
