Fat: Friend or Foe?

Tuesday, November 14
5:30-7:30 p.m.

Nancy Birang, BS, MT (ASCP), NC

Since the 1960’s, fat has been consistently demonized as the main culprit for heart & other diseases. Despite the lack of substantiating science, low-fat and nonfat diets are routinely recommended as the basis of a healthy, disease-preventing diet. In this talk, we will discuss what fat actually is, why we need it, and how to enjoy high-quality fat as part of a health-promoting diet.
