President’s Message

by Sally Fallon Morell

This issue focuses on diets for the elderly. It will come as no surprise to our members that the same dietary principles that we espouse for young people apply as well to the elderly. In fact, it’s as we age that our dietary mistakes are manifested as various disease conditions, while dietary wisdom practiced during growth and in the prime of life bring the blessings of health and happiness to our later years.

The realization that we can avoid senility, frailty, low energy, confusion and depression, even in advanced old age, should provide inspiration to enjoy real foods and plenty of good fat during the younger years.

Both my husband’s parents lived more than one hundred years, as did several of his aunts and uncles. They were all of sound mind and active until almost the end. Geoffrey’s mother wrote letters in perfect handwriting—with nary a tremor.

What did all of these centenarians have in common? They ate real food, they cooked at home, and they had a nutrient-dense diet that contained plenty of New Zealand butter, shellfish, organ meats and fresh vegetables. In addition, not one of them was a coffee or tea drinker. Not one of them smoked and for the most part they abstained from alcohol. However, they didn’t deprive themselves. Geoffrey remembers one aunt who loved battered fish fried in beef tallow. And all of them enjoyed a moderate amount of homemade desserts.

Maybe it’s a sign of old age, but it seems to me that our international conferences get closer and closer together. Hardly have we finished one conference when the next one is upon us. Truly, our November conference is just around the corner. See pages 12-15 for details, including a schedule. This year we will have forty speakers and fifty-one presentations covering everything from complex nutritional science, to cooking to backyard gardening. Our awards banquet will feature the fascinating Denise Minger, speaking on “Death by Food Pyramid.”

So don’t delay in registering; there’s a distinct possibility we may sell out.

We also now have two regional conferences per year—these are scaled-back get-togethers that present the basics to newcomers, along with a more advanced track. The Fall regional will be held September 20-21 in Southbridge, Massachusetts. See page 19 for details. This is a great venue for bringing a friend or family member who has shown some interest in the WAPF dietary principles. The conference puts newcomers on the right path, and inspires old-timers to continue with their diet of real foods.
