Nutrition Experts Bring Health & Wellness Conference to S.F. Bay Area

October 26, 2012–Washington, D.C. –Bullying, road rage, shooting incidents are on the rise. So are behavior problems and learning difficulties in children. What if our Standard American Diet of industrial oils and sweeteners is the root cause of these problems?

The Weston A. Price Foundation (WAPF), a nutrition education non-profit, is one organization looking for common sense solutions to what ails our society.The Foundation, which promotes traditional foodways, old-fashioned fats like butter and holistic health, brings its popular Wise Traditions conference to Santa Clara, California in November.

This thirteenth annual event is open to the public and will be of interest to health professionals, food entrepreneurs, farmers and health conscious consumers.

Conference speakers include Julia Ross, author of The Mood Cure, Natasha Campbell-McBride, author of The Gut and Psychology Syndrome, and WAPF president, Sally Fallon Morell, author of the bestselling cookbook Nourishing Traditions.Fallon Morell is the leading champion of raw milk for human consumption, and works tirelessly to educate the public about the nutritional benefits of farm fresh milk and other nutrient-dense foods, such as grassfed meat and butter, free range pork and pasture-raised chicken and eggs.

“For decades now, our national food policy has discouraged consumption of the very foods necessary for building strong bodies and sound minds. Is it any wonder that we getting a steady diet of misbehavior and mayhem?,” asks Sally Fallon Morell.
