This week thus far

has been a busy one! On Monday, I was at the Annual Post Graduate Conference (APC), Loma Linda, followed by an interview on the "Heart to Heart" with Marie Char at Loma Linda Broadcasting Network( LLBN). We talked about God's leading in my life. God is good and I am so blessed to be enjoying what I do. When I get the chance I will draft that on paper to share :)

APC was great.:) The topics covered were on Nutrition, Lifestyle and chronic disease. Each Presentation topics were an hour long:
Update on Adventist Health Study 2,
Risk Assessment Drives Treatment Option in Obesity,
Nutritional Management after Bariatric surgery,
Plant Based Diet and Childhood obesity prevention,
Vitamin D and Chronic Disease,
Diet and Colorectal cancer.
Waiting for the premier of the movie " Forks Over Knives" at the Loma Linda University Church.
FORKS OVER KNIVES examines the profound claim that most, if not all, of the so-called “diseases of affluence” that afflict us can be controlled, or even reversed, by rejecting our present menu of animal-based and processed foods. The major storyline in the film traces the personal journeys of a pair of pioneering yet under-appreciated researchers, Dr. T. Colin Campbell and Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn. It will be shown in theaters on May 9. Apparently Oprah and her crew went vegan for a week after watching this movie.

This movie was held in conjunction with the HEALTHY  PEOPLE conference.  

 It was said that the recordings from this conference will be posted on the Healthy People website in the next few weeks. They had booths from the local vegan/vegetarian restaurants display their food..this is one vegan dessert booth. :)
This picture shows speaker Jeffrey Smith talking about Genetically Modified Foods ( GMF), with the screen showing the stomach lining of rats who ate GMF and Non-GMF.
Of all the topics presented, I personally enjoyed Caldwell Esselstyn, MD, FACS who talked about "Ending the Coronary Artery Disease Epidemic-making yourself heart attack proof". He showed ways to reverse coronary heart disease with lower LDL the natural way without pills. Going on a plant-based diet, persist and never give up are some key traits to success. :)
I bought several books and DVDs, and will be spending my upcoming weekend doing some reading on all these awesome books! :) Cheers to good health! :)
