"Healthy at 100"

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 protect 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. Bibliography included.

Thurs, Feb. 25, TAM High, Wood Hall 153:
"Eating the Alkaline Way"

Low-acid eating is becoming known as the best way to ensure bone strength as
we age. It also helps prevent and reverse disease by fostering a healthy
blood quality. Learn which foods to choose and which to avoid. Receive a
bibliography of the best and the latest books on the topic, and become
familiar with supportive groups such as Physicians Committee for Responsible
Medicine.

Thurs, March 24, TAM High, Wood Hall 152:
"Diabetes & Diet: What’s the Connection?"

200 million people have diabetes worldwide, yet it’s rare in Japan, China, Thailand and other Asian countries, as well as parts of Africa, cultures that consume lots of carbohydrates. But when their traditional diets become westernized, diabetes rates soar. You’ll 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 the cutting-edge research from Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine. Bibliography included.

"Diet & Cancer, Prevention & Recovery"

October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, a fitting time to include this overview of how cancers develop and how they can be reversed in many cases. Sixty percent of all 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.
