Upcoming Event: Berkeley Soda Series

sodaseriesIn an effort to raise awareness about the health and environmental impacts of soda and other sugary drinks, the Berkeley Healthy Child Coalition and several other local organizations are hosting Soda: The Series from September 4th through October 9th. The series of community events will include Berkeley leaders alongside speakers such as Dr. Robert Lustig (a renowned UCSF researcher on sugar), Raj Patel (award-winning writer, activist, and academic), and Anna Lappé (author and director of Small Planet Institute) discussing the science of sugary drinks, tactics of the soda industry, and disease prevention efforts. These events take place in the run-up to the November election, when Berkeley will vote on Measure D, a tax on sugary drinks.

Upcoming Event: Michael Pollan Lecture in SF

ImageMichael Pollan will be speaking in San Francisco on May 1st in a lecture entitled, “The Omnivore’s Solution: In Defense of Food.” 

Here’s the event description from City Arts:

For the past twenty years, Michael Pollan has been writing books and articles about the places where the human and natural worlds intersect: food, agriculture, gardens, drugs and architecture.  An “ethical-eating guru” and fierce advocate of sustainable agriculture and living, Pollan is one of the most compelling voices on subjects ranging from environment to business to health.  He is the author of In Defense of Food: An Eater’s Manifesto, The Omnivore’s Dilemma: A Natural History of Four Meals, The Botany of Desire: A Plant’s-Eye View of the World, Food Rules: An Eater’s Manual, and Cooked: A Natural History of Transformation.  Pollan teaches at the UC Berkeley Graduate School of Journalism. This program is a lecture titled The Omnivore’s Solution: In Defense of Food.
