CURRENT NUTRITION TRENDS: HOW FOOD AFFECTS HEALTH

Event date: 5/15/2019 6:00 PM - 10:00 PM Export event


How does what we eat affect our health? Our food is different today than it was in the past—-processed, treated, transported. What is a GMO? What is inflammation and how can we control it in the human body? Can we make ourselves feel better by eating differently instead of taking more medications? Learn about nutrition trends and about how food can be connected to gut, brain or oral health.  Leave this class ready to help advise patients about how to feel better through diet.
