Healthy Habits with Dr. Claudia Kawas – Palm Desert
In January we examined water waste in food production in our region. In February we learned about food waste in America. Now for our March Global Food series, we take a look at calorie waste and how to make lifestyle choices that help the planet as well as our minds, bodies and spirits!
For centuries, people have wondered about the role of diet in both the cause and prevention of disease. Is there a diet to cultivate a healthy mind? Which nutrients contribute to longevity? Do supplements offer more help or harm? Clinical studies of vitamins and micro-nutrients are published regularly in support of this notion, and the results are routinely highlighted in newspapers, magazines, and popular media. But do they tell the whole story?
Find out from Dr. Claudia Kawas, a geriatric neurologist at University of California, Irvine and a specialist in dementia and memory disorders. Her research on people who thrived beyond age 90 has been featured on "60 Minutes" and in publications all over the world. She'll be discussing food and its role in health, aging, and Alzheimer's Disease in ways we may have not considered before.
This series is in partnership with Hidden Harvest.
