The Unitarian Universalist Community Church (UUCC) will host the screening of the movie ‘Magic Pills’ on Friday, June 22 at 7 p.m. A discussion of the film will take place after the screening. Due to on-going constructions at UUCC, the event will be held at Trinity Lutheran Church, 2901 Western Avenue in Park Forest.

‘Magic Pills’ explores homeopathic medicine which is one of the most widely used forms of alternative medicine on the planet. However, despite its popularity, homeopathic medicine has come under a great deal of scrutiny in recent years and is now a favorite target for skeptics and debunkers. The controversy surrounding homeopathic medicine is founded in the belief that something so highly diluted cannot work without violating the laws of chemistry. ‘Magic Pills’ challenges viewers to decide for themselves by presenting new scientific discoveries, and real world successes that challenge these assumptions.

Many medical journals refuse to publish positive studies due to systemic bias, and the media can distort the truth by omitting information. The stakes are immense, if homeopathy works it could transform the medical system, and provide safe, affordable, and effective medicine. Is the truth being buried?

Free coffee, tea, popcorn will be provided. Bring a snack to share if desired. Optional donations appreciated.
