Food for Thought: The Role of Nutrition in Healthy Aging

MSHC’s Wendy Williams with Denise Normandin, Registered Dietitian

Description:  In this month’s episode, Mid-State Health Center’s Wendy Williams interviews Registered Dietitian, Denise Normandin, about the importance of good nutrition for healthy aging.  The way we eat throughout our lives impacts the way we age. And most people realize that what they eat impacts their health, but they don’t often consider or understand the impact of nutrition on disease prevention and disease progression. A healthy nutrition plan can help maintain a healthy weight, but it can also help lower our blood pressure, maintain healthy blood sugar control, manage arthritis, reduce the risk of cancer, reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease, including heart attack, prevent and slow the progression of eye disease.
