What’s On Your Plate? The 2012 Lorne Trottier Public Science Symposium Series Answers This Question and More

Since I far from know my way around the kitchen, I’m more often than not reaching for ready-to-eat meal propositions, or food right out of the can. For instance, I just had a bowl of Campbell’s Teriyaki Beef Noodle and Vegetable soup I picked up at the convenience/grocery store a stone’s throw from my place. Now, I do read nutritional labels (my many real, as well as perhaps imagined food intolerances require me to), but I can assure you that half the time, I haven’t got a clue what to look for, or what the daily value percentages mean. And frankly speaking, the list of ingredients on most food products, with entries like potassium chloride and the like, is far from reassuring.

I suspect I’m not the only one feeling confused by the mixed messages about food we’re inundated with, and subsequently, at a loss for how to make the right choices. Conflicting, contradictory messages inform our dietary choices, no matter how we may try to better educate ourselves about food. What is the truth about food, what should we eat and not eat? What is healthy? Decidedly, it’s about time we debunk contemporary myths surrounding food.

Luckily for us, the Lorne Trottier Public Science Symposium Series is offering to do just that.  During Food: A Serving of Science, a two-day lecture series beginning Monday, November 12, expert speakers on the topic will educate the general public on this hot-button, and elusive topic that is food, using science to get to the truth behind the myriad of claims regarding diet, vitamin supplements, antioxidants, and what to cook, among other things.

Food being such an essential and integral part of our lives, it’s only natural that we get a real understanding of the foods we nourish ourselves with.

Food: A Serving of Science, as part of the 2012 Lorne Trottier Public Science Symposium Series runs November 12 & 13  from 5:30 to 7:30 pm at Centre Mont-Royal, 1000 Sherbrooke Street West.
