Nutrition expert to speak at Pen Bay YMCA
Rockport — John Bagnulo will discuss the Origins and Evolution of the Human Diet on Tuesday, Sept. 11 from 6:30 to 8 p.m. at the Pen Bay YMCA.
The lecture is an inquiry into which foods can help restore health. Bagnulo’s lecture will provide an overview of human physiology and how it is being influenced by the current Western diet. This talk will illuminate the foods most responsible for chronic ailments such as diabetes, high blood sugar, gluten intolerance, digestion issues, celiac disease, cancer, high blood pressure and inflammation. Bagnulo will also discuss which foods people are most sorely missing and how to get back to a sustainable, supportive way of eating.
Bagnulo earned a master’s of public health from the University of North Carolina and a Ph.D. in nutrition and food science from the University of Maine. He lectures and teaches programs nationally in the area of nutrition and disease prevention/reversal. Bagnulo is a naturalist because of his understanding of the biological processes at work in the world and in bodies, and a nutritionist because of his ability to see how foods influence these processes and how these processes influence food.
The program is co-sponsored by the Picker Family Resource Center and the Pen Bay YMCA in service to improving the health and quality of life of the community. There is no need to RSVP. Visit www.penbayhealthcare.org/pickercenter for more information or call 596-8950.
