February 19, 2020 Appetite For Life
Appetite For Life – Wednesday, February 19, 2020: “The Food and Nutrition Myths that Never Fade Away: Time to Debunk Them,” presented by Cecilia Kwan, PhD, postdoctoral research associate, Smith Lab, UNC Nutrition Research Institute.
As we become more health conscious, we are eager to find ways to eat and live healthily. We chat with friends about their eating habits. We scroll through social media posts looking for trending diets. We search the internet for our favorite celebrity’s meal plan. Very soon, we find ourselves overwhelmed with conflicting information and opinions. “Should I avoid fat because it will make me fat?” “Do I need supplements after I work out?” “Are eggs really that bad?” Deciding which information to trust and which to question is not easy. In this talk, we will demystify some of these common myths about foods, nutrition and health, and take a closer look at what the science really says about them. Let’s say goodbye to these myths and embrace the true science of healthy eating!
Program begins at 6:00 PM at Rowan Cabarrus Community College Biotechnology Training Center on the NC Research Campus, 399 Biotechnology Lane, Kannapolis, NC 28081. Doors open at 5:15 PM. Seating for the program is limited. Come a few minutes early to park and get a seat!
