Join Dr. Michael Milburn for a free informative workshop exploring the nutritional benefits of traditional diets this Saturday at 10:00am. Traditional diets are known to be protective against the common diseases associated with the modern “Westernized” diet such as cancer and cardio-vascular disease. Dr. Milburn argues that traditional diets are not only healthier but can also be more complex in taste, appealing in color, and beneficial for the environment. Have you ever wondered what people in Mediterranean regions eat that is so healthy? Or what about the Okinawans? Or the Tara-humara of Copper Canyon, Mexico? Dr. Milburn’s fascinating workshop will explore these traditional foodways and uncover their secrets to good health.
