IN PERSON: Confused about what to eat for health and longevity? That's understandable, because nutrition research was incomplete for a long time, and commentators frequently contradicted one another. Recently, several large-scale, long-term studies have come to fruition, yielding profound and surprising results that allow us to categorize each food as beneficial, harmful or neutral to health. The instructor will provide a systematic review of the the insights gained from these studies, by nutrient group and food. He will provide specific recommendations on how to design one's own diet for optimal wellness, especially with regard to avoiding diabetes, heart disease and cancer. | Lecture + Q&A.
