Forest Hill Garden Club
We celebrated the arrival of spring with a program on health and nutrition, titled: THE HATEFUL EIGHT: THE TRUE CAUSES OF AGING, chaired by Marcia Elias who introduced our speaker, Professor Emeritus Robert Lustig, UCSF Division of Endocrinology. Dr. Lustig talked about food choices and their effect on aging and diseases, in particular the unhealthy practice of the consumption of sugar and processed foods, which are in effect poisoning our bodies, mind and society in general.
We had a very big turn-out. The tables were decorated with nice floral bouquets, thank you Nancy Hagosian and Anna Bolechowski. The highlight of our decor was on a side table surrounded by books authored by our presenter, a beautiful edible sculpture of vegetables framed with herbs that was created by our artist Yen Bachmeier. Many thanks Yen, how can you find time?
The tea table was laden with a great variety of delectable foods. Thank you to the refreshment making team of Yen Bachmeier, Marcia Elias, Kathleen Fong, Saundra McCormick, Laura Outsen and Ingeborg. Event set up was done by Marcia and Yen and takedown was done by Marcia, Yen, Laura Outsen, Zaia Vera and to all who helped, many thanks.
