Leading omni-direct lifestyle company Youngevity International, Inc. (NASDAQ: YGYI) this morning announced Carpe Canum Media’s release of a documentary featuring YGYI’s founder titled “The Audacity of Health: The Dr. Joel Wallach Story.” The documentary follows Wallach’s life and career, from early work in the 1960s in studying one of the first mass (animal) pollution-related die-offs and helping to save Africa’s white rhino, to his work in the 70s while discovering the correlation between disease and nutritional deficiencies in animals, as well as how the parallel extends to humans. The story also features Wallach’s successful FDA petition to include specific nutrients like folate and selenium as required dietary nutrients and to allow disease risk claims on nutritional supplements.
“I lived many of the events chronicled in this film, seeing it come to life is a magical milestone,” Youngevity CEO Steve Wallach, who narrated parts of the documentary, stated in the news release. “The Audacity of Health is a very fitting tribute to my father Dr. Joel Wallach. I am appreciative of the almost two years of work and research that Carpe Canum Media and all those involved in bringing this documentary to life. This documentary, already being viewed in 42 countries, is a powerful validation of my father’s life work and the positive impact my father has had on health and wellness around the world.”
