You Are What You Eat--Food.
White, Polly
This brief speech discusses the correlation between nutrition and health among older adults. Food habits of older people do not always fall in line with their food needs and health condition. Therefore, there is a need to establish nutrition programs to help older adults, as well as others, learn how to regulate their diet. The speaker challenges the prevalence of various food myths, such as the notion that processed food has fewer nutrients than natural foods. People should be careful about the sources from which they receive their information concerning food. (SE)
