Doctor to Separate Fact from Fiction for Making Good Food Choices

Healthy food myths are everywhere these days. People who are looking for clear information about good nutrition can have their questions answered by attending the free community presentation, “No-Nonsense Nutrition: What’s Fact, What’s Fiction?” to get the big picture on making healthy food choices.

Michael Gitter, MD, of Appleton Cardiology, will separate fact from fiction when it comes to popular health myths such as, “energy drinks are less harmful than soda,” “low-fat foods are better for you,” and “junk food helps battle stress.”

This free, 90-minute educational program begins at 6 p.m. on Thurs., Nov.29, in the Ironwood Room at Appleton Medical Center.
