  • Description:

    This course will be based on the book of the same title by Dr. Michael Greger (Pan Books). We will look at safe simple lifestyle prescriptions based on solid scientific evidence referring regularly to a whole host of published research papers. 100 years ago the major causes of death were pneumonia, tuberculosis and diarrhoeal disease, also malnutrition in some parts of the world. Today death in the developed world is largely due to lifestyle diseases. No fads, no moral crusades, just solid scientific evidence based on peer reviewed research publications.

  • Format: Discussion

  • Leader: Alan Winfield
  • It is important to say that I am not medically or nutritionally trained. I have a scientific background and some scientific research experience. I see my role as a facilitator.
