Ethics in Healthcare: Gluten & Red Meat & GMOs: Oh My!
When did eating become so complicated? In the old days, you could walk into your favorite restaurant and order a hamburger, fries and soda, and then sit back and enjoy. Today, no way! Why is that? Because today, you ought to ask yourself:

- Should you eat the red meat because its associated with heart disease, stroke and cancer?
- Should you eat the bun because theres gluten in it?
- Should you drink the soda because excess sugar leads to diabetes, and if its a diet soda, are you being harmed by the artificial sweeteners?
- Should you be concerned about possible GMOs in every part of this meal?

What should a normal person do? Eat air? Come join us for a delicious discussion about many of the controversies surrounding the food we buy and the way we eat. Since we all need to eat, who knows, this talk may just save your life! Bon Appetit!
