Dallas Buyers Club

Did I get your attention?  What, you ask, has the movie Dallas Buyers Club got to do with nutrition??  My husband and I watched the movie last weekend.   What a stellar movie….intriguing subject matter….superb acting.  What a surprise to find references to amino acid therapy, essential fatty acids, and whole foods.  The main character, Ron Woodroof, tried (by any means) to extend his life after being given a 30 day AIDS death sentence in 1986.  He shunned toxic pharmaceuticals and processed foods.  He used a protein serum and took essential fatty acids (omega-3 fatty acids, for one).  He lived for 7 more years….amazing!  Real food….essential nutrients….staying away from toxins….brilliant 🙂
