Lesson on Nutrition: ‘Let Food be Thy Medicine’

Lesson on Nutrition: ‘Let Food be Thy Medicine’
BY MICHELE S. BYERS
SPECIAL TO NEWJERSEYNEWSROOM.COM

"Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food," declared Hippocrates, the Greek physician who lived nearly 2,500 years ago and is considered the father of modern medicine.

If Hippocrates were to visit present day America, he’d surely be dazzled by our array of medical advances and astounded at our immense variety of foods. But after seeing how many diseases are caused by poor diets, he’d probably be more convinced than ever about food being medicine.

And if Hippocrates were to come to Morristown, N.J., on May 2, he’d find lots of others in agreement about the right foods making all the difference in health and vitality.

On Saturday, May 2, the Northeast Organic Farming Association of New Jersey, better known as NOFA-NJ, will present the “Food as Medicine Conference,” an all-day exploration of the relationship between food and health.
