People think that disease is caused by genetic predisposition, chemicals in the environment, bad luck, aging, and other factors outside of our control. These are all factors, but the good news is that the biggest contributors to disease development are things you can control – the diet and lifestyle choices you make. During this course Dr. Pam Popper Ph.D will review with you the scientific evidence concerning disease causation, and show you how you can have more control over your health outcomes. Dr. Pam Popper is a internationally renowned scientist and nutritionist, author of best selling books and featured in several NETFLIX documentaries such as Food Choices and Forks Over Knives.
There is a big difference between what people think causes disease and what actually does cause disease. In this course Dr. Pam will provide detailed information about various influences on health so that you can invest your time and energy in the ones that count the most. Diet and especially a plant based diet can make a significant difference in your health outcomes and Dr. Popper discusses this in depth. You’ll finish this with a sense of empowerment – that your future health status is within your control, not due to outside forces.
