I’m keynoting the launch of the 2022-2023 Dr. Rogers Prize at the Sheraton Vancouver Wall Centre, 1000 Burrard Street, 6:00 pm reception, my talk is at 7:00 pm. I’m not getting the $250,000 prize (alas), I’m just celebrating it. It’s for a Canadian doing complementary and alternative medicine.
Need a healthy snack? Try this!
My distant* but dearly loved cousin, Michael Kravit, sent this from Taiwan. Seems like a really good idea.
I’m working on a book chapter on snack foods (for an updated edition of What to Eat) and I counted the number of feet of shelf space devoted to snacks—chips, crackers, cookies, toaster pastries, candies, etc—in the Ithaca Walmart: 4,100 linear feet, or 0.8 mile.
OK. Some of them are nuts or dried fruit. But the great majority? Mostly ultra-processed and highly profitable to their makers.
*Definition of a distant cousin: he’s the grandson of my first cousin, which I think makes him twice removed.
