Abstract:
Over the centuries eating patterns have changed dramatically.  Prehistoric man was a hunter-gatherer eating what is now called the Paleolithic diet.  With the rise of farming and then industrialization, most food is now provided by agricultural cultivation.  Today, much of the foods we eat are processed or highly processed.  The food industry produces foods with a long shelf life and in very large quantities to feed the billions of people that inhabit the earth. As a result, most populations have modified their traditional diets.  Unfortunately, the modern diet often does not promote good health.   In Israel, examples of dietary transition have been observed in immigrant communities including those that have arrived from Ethiopia.  However, making healthy food choices is a problem in most sectors of the Israeli population.   Through community outreach programs within the School of Nutritional Sciences and international research projects, attempts are being made to help change what people eat and promote optimal nutrition and improve health.  The seminar will present examples of the work being conducted in this area under the supervision of Dr. Stark in collaboration with other faculty members and students.
