Prof. Christopher Ray, Kinesiology, was invited by the Library to choose an item to add to the Library's collection, purchased with the support of the Friends of the UT Arlington Library on the occasion of her Promotion to Associate Professor with Tenure.
Prof. Ray chose Forks Over Knives (DVD) by Monica Beach Media presents written and directed by Lee Fulkerson; executive producer, Brian Wendel; producer, John Corry; a Monica Beach Media production. Santa Monica: CA: Monica Beach Media, Santa Monica, CA: Monica Beach Media, Distributed by Virgil Films & Entertainment, c2011., 2011.
Prof. Ray's remarks on this item:
"I would like to choose this item for both professional and personal reasons. As a Kinesiology professor, I do believe that behaviors have the largest impact on chronic disease and feel that we can prevent and treat chronic disease through a whole-food plant-based diet. Personally, this movie resonated with me because when I arrived at UTA I weighed in excess of 260 lbs. Through the support of my wife (Julie), kids (Nathaniel & Callie) and by adopting a primarily plant based whole food diet I have lost in excess of 75 lbs."
