Food is fundamental to life. Yet our eating habits have become incredibly complex, involving many aspects of daily life far beyond addressing simple nutritional needs. The increased consumption of unhealthy food and sedentary lifestyles mean excess weight and obesity now surpass undernourishment as the world’s leading food and nutrition problem. In this talk, Dr. Jeannette Ickovics will describe the causes, consequences and cures for what ails us regarding all things food and health.
