"The Latest in Nutrition" by Michael Greger, M.D
The HSUS would like to invite you and your friends to an engaging multimedia presentation -- "The Latest in Nutrition" by Michael Greger, M.D., director of public health and animal agriculture at The Humane Society of the United States.
Scientific studies have shown that we don't need to eat animals to be healthy. In fact the longest-living people in the world don't eat any animals at all. The population with the longest life expectancy isn't the Okinawa Japanese or the Mediterranean Sardinians, but California Adventist vegetarians. They live 10 years longer than the general population and enjoy lower rates of many of the chronic diseases that plague Americans, such as heart disease, stroke, diabetes, obesity, and certain cancers.
Join Dr. Greger as he reviews -- in an interactive quiz show format -- the latest in cutting-edge research published in peer-reviewed scientific nutrition journals and learn for yourself (and your loved ones) how a humane diet is also the healthiest. The presentation is free and open to the public.
Tuesday, March 24th
Arizona State University
COOR Building, Room 170
A tremendously entertaining medical speaker with an encyclopedic understanding of human nutrition, Dr. Greger will offer practical advice on how best to feed ourselves and our families to prevent, treat, and even reverse chronic disease.
