Monday SST Visitor

  On Monday, March 16th, we had a visitor, Jeremiah M. Eckhaus. He's a local family physician at Montpelier Health Center and he came to talk about the western lifestyle and diet. He told us about how to stay healthy and eat what's best for our bodies. He also talked about the decrease in nutrients in our food and the increase in unhealthy, sugary, fatty food and how it has increased the rate of diabetes by leaps and bounds. He said the best way to keep healthy is to be active and eat lots of fruits and vegetables. Carbohydrates and sugary foods should never replace them.
