The Gut Movie
Nov

to Nov 30

The Gut Movie

The premiere of the long awaited and stunning documentary investigating the human microbiome.

In The Gut Movie, we follow the journey of journalist & researcher Kale Brock as, in the quest to discover whether the ‘optimal microbiome’ does indeed exist, he travels from Australia to Namibia to live with The San, an ancient hunter-gatherer people living traditionally from the land. During the excursion Brock monitors his own microbiome and how it changes in conjunction with the new surroundings, and takes microbiome samples of The San to gauge the significant differences in microbiota present across cultures.

With expert commentary by leading gastroenterologist Professor Thomas Borody, molecular geneticist Dr Margie Smith, immunology researcher and expert Professor Mimi Tang, naturopath and chiropractor Dr Damian Kristof and more, The Gut Movie provides an insightful yet entertaining look at the explosive research of the gut & its impact on human health.

Hare Krishna! The Film
Oct

to Nov 23

Hare Krishna! The Film

This film is finally coming to Australia after opening in the USA in June!

It is about an unassuming 70 year old Swami who went to America with no money or support. He found himself in the turbulent 1960's and he ignited the worldwide cultural revolution of spiritual consciousness known as the Hare Krishna movement.

"His teachings on caring for the earth, of respect, of compassion, of living a life without greed or exploitation are exactly the messages that the world needs to hear today."

ARMM is sharing this because of a recent article we've shared about slaughter-free, Ahimsa milk and the Ahimsa Dairy Foundation in England who produce the raw milk for human consumption. Ahimsa means non-violence. Our article has seen phenomenal interest in the last 31 days with just under 500 views.

Symbiotic Earth documentary

Symbiotic Earth: How Lynn Margulis rocked the boat and started a scientific revolution is a feature length documentary which presents a portrait of the great scientist and teacher Lynn Margulis who was at the helm of a significant paradigm shift in biology that affects how we look at ourselves, evolution, and planet Earth. Lynn Margulis traveled extensively, networking with collaborators in the sciences and humanities on ideas that stress the importance of symbiosis among all living things from bacteria to Gaia. Filmmaker John Feldman has interviewed many of these world famous scientists and thinkers. His film will bring to the general public these revolutionary ideas.Lynn Margulis, a courageous evolutionist and geoscientist, died unexpectedly of a stroke in November of 2011. A lively, personable, and down-to-earth scientist, her pioneering ideas cast doubt on accepted scientific “dogma” and challenged the establishment.  She triumphed over ridicule, scorn, and chauvinism.

Research Project: "Not for Human Consumption" - the risky business of raw milk - Canberra

PhD candidate Penny Wilson will present her final seminar on her research into the governance of raw milk.

Her research examines the dangers, and benefits, that the scientists and regulators are protecting the community from and asks if raw milk is really such a health hazard. In spite of the vehement statements by regulators and scientists warning against drinking raw milk, committed consumers still demand the product. Tonight Penny will examine the strategies, risks and dangers producers and retailers take to indulge consumers’ risky pleasure. Furthermore, she will ask if a legal, regulated product would be less risky than prohibition and the corresponding growing underground trade in raw milk.

Please see this website for details:

Raw Milk Panel Discussion: Should New Jersey Farmers be Permitted to Distribute Local Fresh Unpasteurized Milk?

This panel discussion will take place at the 2016 NOFA-NJ Winter Conference and is hosted by the Northeast Organic Farming Association of NJ (NOFA-NJ)

Panelists include: Dr. Joseph Heckman, David Gumpert, Dr. Don Schaffner and a Ph.D candidate in food safety. 

Raw Milk Panel Discussion: Should New Jersey Farmers be Permitted to Distribute Local Fresh Unpasteurized Milk?

Raw milk comes straight from the animal and does not undergo any further processing before human consumption. It is not allowed for sale in New Jersey or the nearby states of Delaware and Maryland. Other states including New York, Vermont and Massachusetts allow farms sales of raw milk. Ten states currently allow the sale of raw milk at the retail level including Pennsylvania, Connecticut, Maine, New Hampshire, South Carolina, and California. What are the pros and cons of raw milk, and why is there so much disparity across the States and over the allowance of raw milk sales? Learn the nitty-gritty details during this lively dialogue between a panel of food safety experts and raw milk aficionados.
