'Is Your Diet Good for You and the Planet?' at USU's Science Unwrapped Friday, Jan. 17

Are you eating food that’s good for you? And is it also good for the planet?

Utah State University epidemiologist Ron Munger tackles these questions at Science Unwrapped Friday, Jan. 17, at 7 p.m. in the Emert Auditorium, Room 130, of the Eccles Science Learning Center on the USU campus.

All ages are welcome and admission is free.

“Is there one best diet for a long and healthy life?” asks Munger, professor in USU’s Department of Nutrition, Dietetics and Food Sciences and director of the USU Center of Epidemiologic Studies. “What choices can we make to improve our health, while also improving the health of our planet? We’ll explore these topics.”

Refreshments and hands-on learning activities conducted by USU students and faculty and community members follow Munger’s talk. The presentation is part of Science Unwrapped’s year-long “Food for Thought” series.

Hosted by USU’s College of Science, Science Unwrapped introduces science in a relaxed, entertaining manner. Each event draws several hundred guests, with attendees ranging from preschoolers to senior citizens.
