The local chapter of the Weston A. Price Foundation (WAPF) will present a two-day class on health and diet.
The WAPF is a nonprofit organization with chapters worldwide dedicated to exploring, studying, understanding, and teaching the roles of nutrient-dense, traditional foods, on our health and well-being.
For several decades we’ve been told by health professionals to eat less meat, cut out saturated fats and oils, cook with vegetable oils, and eat lots of fruit, vegetables, and whole grains. And for many decades the health of our nation’s population has deteriorated. Our food and drug industries have profited while our health has steadily worsened. Children suffer from asthma, ADHD, autism, and a host of allergies and other ailments while their parents suffer from a multitude of chronic diseases. Heart disease, cancer, diabetes, obesity, depression and other forms of mental problems are rampant. Infertility and caesarians are becoming commonplace as is the need for orthodontics in our children. Come to the class to find out how these ailments are related and how we contribute greatly to their proliferation through what we eat, generation upon generation.
The good news is that we as individuals have the power to reverse this trend but we need to become informed as to what various foods do to our bodies and how to start having healthy children. This is a generational problem – what we eat plays a major role in the health of not just ourselves but also the well-being of successive generations. Although the list of health professionals that are catching on to this problem is growing worldwide, it is not yet common knowledge and very few doctors will give you this information as it goes against standard policies. The research supporting the eating of traditional foods is out there but not what you or your doctor will learn from most newspapers or journals or in the news – the food and drug giants are not going to relinquish their hold on what you read or hear since our ill health makes for a multi-billion dollar industry.
We will present a class on what comprises a healthy diet and how eating various foods affects our lives and those of future generations on Sunday, March 20 from 1-6 p.m. and on Sunday, March 27, from 1-6 p.m. at the Ross Aragon Community Center, South Conference Room . We will also let you know where to get more information on these issues and how to continue your nutritional education — all for free.
