And there is more than just the dinner. After dinner, enjoy an important presentation by a luminary of vegan nutrition, Dr. Neal Barnard.
Dr. Neal Barnard, MD, will present startling facts via video about some of our favorite, but unhealthy foods. He will explain why they are so appealing.
Dr. Barnard will discuss the science behind food additions. Willpower is not to blame: chocolate, cheese, meat, and sugar release opiate-like substances. Dr. Barnard also discusses how industry, aided by government, exploits these natural cravings, pushing us to eat more and more unhealthy foods. A plant-based diet is the solution to avoid many of these problems. This is Dr. Barnard's COMPLETE presentation from the VegSource HEALTHY LIFESTYLE EXPO. Dr. Neal Barnard is the founder of the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM).
In this presentation, you will find out WHY foods like that have such power over people, and WHAT you can do about it. Don't miss this important study.
Enjoy the dinner and the presentation at the Opera Plaza Community Room, 601 Van Ness, San Francisco. Take the elevator to the first floor, then security will key you down to the mezzanine for the event.
