SS 310 – FOOD AS MEDICINE. Class presentation available.

What you put in your supermarket cart may be a cheaper and more powerful medicine than the bottle of pills your pharmacist hands you or the supplements you buy over-the-counter. Learn which groups of foods have been identified as having valuable therapeutic properties, and how you can incorporate them into your diet, for example, the yellow and green ones such as avocado and spinach, which may reduce the risk of cataracts and age-related macular degeneration.
