Thurs, June 26, TAM High, Wood Hall Rm. 151:
"Diabetes: Eating Well for Prevention & Recovery"
200 million people have diabetes worldwide, yet it¹s rare in Asian
countries, as well as parts of Africa, cultures that consume lots of
carbohydrates. But when their traditional diets become westernized, diabetes
rates soar. You¹ll be surprised to learn the latest findings on the specific
foods that cause Type I and Type II diabetes, and the diet that controls
blood sugar three times more effectively than the American Diabetes
Association (ADA) diet. The American Academy of Pediatrics and the American
Medical Association are in support of this new research from Physicians
Committee for Responsible Medicine. Bibliography included.
Thurs, Oct. 16, Drake High School, Room 127:
"Healthy Eating for Cancer Prevention and Recovery"
Sixty percent of cancer in the US is caused by the food we eat, leaving 30%
to smoking, 5% to viruses and 2-3% to genetic factors. You can¹t compromise
on a healing diet when it comes to cancer, nor can you cancel out harmful
dietary habits with supplements. Thousands of studies prove the value of a
whole foods, plant-based diet in cancer prevention and treatment. Learn
which foods are most beneficial. Meredith is an associate of Physicians
Committee for Responsible Medicine and will share recent findings.
Thurs, Oct. 23, TAM High,
Wood Hall Rm. 151:
"Healthy Eating for Healthy Aging"
Diet plays a crucial role in healthy aging from ensuring bone health to
mental acuity. You may be surprised to learn which foods are the best
sources of the nutrients that are significantly related to higher bone
mineral density and strength. See which foods to avoid in order to retain
nutrient intake, avoiding or reducing osteoporotic fractures. Fascinating
research on the longest-lived population on the planet shows they consume
fewer calories, but eat more. And dietary approaches can help prevent or
slow the onset of the most common form of dementia, Alzheimer¹s disease.
