Myths & Facts

Are whole milk and real butter good for you?  What about real sugar or artificial sweeteners?  Red meat, bacon, potatoes and pasta?  Fast food, yogurt, spices and supplements.  The list goes on and on.  Every day in the news we hear about something that is bad for us, or was bad and is now considered good for us.  It is so confusing!  Hear Registered Dietitian, Michelle James, Clinical Nutrition Manager with Danville Regional Medical Center, as she presents, What’s New In Nutrition:  Myths & Facts.  This free program will be held on Tuesday, July 12, from 11:30 am - 1:00 pm at Ballou Recreation Center, lower level.  Michelle will give us the facts, dispel many myths and answer your questions.  We all want to eat healthy but need to know what that really means.  Ballou is on Bus Route #3#5 Edgewood-Stokeland.  This event is part of the popular, free Keeping Well in Mind, Body & Spirit Series for those concerned with cancer prevention and survivorship.
