Bill Kurtis - "Death By Food" presentation on Monday, March 16, 2015 at ECC
Award-winning investigative journalist Bill Kurtis will expose
what is behind today's myriad of rising health problems. In his multimedia
lecture Death By Food, Kurtis will investigate the means, motive and
opportunity behind why American food is over-processed, over-sugared,
over-salted, and contains too much fat. Mr. Kurtis will offer a means of
optimal nutrition as a solution to the nutrient depleted foods we often find on
tables of American consumers. Kurtis will argue that natural, minimally
processed, sustainably raised food stuffs hold the key to our skyrocketing
obesity and diabetes rates, and how consumers can make more informed food
choices for better health.
