Almost every day the media bombards us with some new astounding scientific, sometimes contradictory, advice about our health. Drink coffee. Don’t drink coffee; Eat chocolate. Don’t eat chocolate; Take a daily aspirin. Don’t take aspirin; Everyone should limit salt. Salt restriction is not necessary. Having trouble deciding what to believe? This course provides current, fact-based information about these and other health topics chosen by the instructor and the class – which fads to believe; which ones to ignore; and how to tell the difference. Spoiler Alert: The news about chocolate is getting sweeter and sweeter!
