The Salt of the Earth: How Much is Safe to Use

Visit

Time:  4:00 – 5:30 pm, EST

Topic: The Salt of the Earth: How Much is Safe to Use

Health experts agree that most people consume too much sodium, and that it has been linked to some health problems, especially an increased risk for cardiovascular disease. One study concluded that salt (the main source of sodium in our foods) is associated with almost 10% of deaths related to cardiovascular disease worldwide. With that in mind, is there room to safely use salt at all? Are there healthier salt-substitutes? How can our food taste good if we cut back or even eliminate table salt? Can we also develop health problems from consuming too little sodium? We will answer these and other questions related to salt based on the Word of God and current research.

nahikim@burmanu.ca

This event is to promote a healthy and active lifestyle to university students. It is a type of health ministries because one of the key goals of this event is to educate others about incorporating health principles into their lives. Its purpose is to show others that healthy living can be simple and fun! The Made to Move event will be based on princIples found in the acronym NEWSTART, although an emphasis will be placed on the exercise aspect. The facts that will be presented via social media throughout our event will be taken from scientific sources, connecting science to healthy Christian living. As more students become aware of how easy and fun it can be to live a healthy lifestyle, they can also share their experience with others, creating a ripple effect.

Visit

Time:  4:00 – 5:30 pm, EST

Topic: Nutrition Considerations for Vegetarians, Part 2

A vegetarian diet has been associated with a vast array of health benefits, but what makes it so powerful in preventing, managing, or even reversing chronic diseases is not only the elimination of meat and other animal products, but also the plant-based food choices that are made. In this webinar we will look at a few more nutrients of “concern” on a plant-based diet and how to make sure we are not falling short on them to guarantee we are doing the best we can in optimizing our health.
