IQ Issue 2: Food for Thought, Fall/Winter 2010

IN THIS ISSUE: exploring nutrition, activity and health. Food is not just a dinner table conversation any more. The importance of food and nutrition in our society – and their impact on our health – are part of the daily conversation everywhere, it seems, and are often headline makers in the news. From politicians talking about nutritious snacks for schoolchildren, to “foodies” promoting the locavore diet, to supermarkets plugging the benefits of probiotic foods, to shoppers fearing the dangers of certain bacteria, like Listeria or E. coli, the talk on food is everywhere. Indeed, Health Canada’s online site has several pages on food and nutrition, including advice on nutrients, research programs in concert with industry and universities, and even on genetically modified and other novel foods.
