The Jungle Effect

Note new date! This program is now occurring on October 14 at 6 p.m.

Daphne Miller, M.D., Associate Professor, UCSF

Food is a powerful medicine, and what you eat and how can tell a lot more about your health than the supplements you take. Over the span of three years and tens of thousands of miles, Miller traveled to five locations where common diseases such as diabetes, heart disease and depression were rare. While visiting Mexico, Crete, Iceland, Cameroon and Okinawa, Miller collected recipes and learned of indigenous foods that prevent chronic illnesses. Now she demonstrates her international diet guide.
