John Wes­t­er­dahl, PhD, MPH, RD, FAND, Direc­tor of the Bragg Health Insti­tute and Direc­tor of Health Sci­ence for Bragg Live Food Prod­ucts, has been elected to be the next Chair­man of the Veg­e­tar­ian Nutri­tion Dietetic Prac­tice Group (VNDPG) of the Acad­emy of Nutri­tion and Dietet­ics. The Acad­emy of Nutri­tion and Dietet­ics is the world’s largest orga­ni­za­tion of food and nutri­tion pro­fes­sion­als. Dr. Wes­t­er­dahl, who cur­rently serves as Chair-Elect of the veg­e­tar­ian nutri­tion group of Reg­is­tered Dietit­ian Nutri­tion­ists, will assume lead­er­ship as Chair­man in June 2015. The VNDPG of the Acad­emy is the lead­ing author­ity on evidence-based veg­e­tar­ian nutri­tion for food and nutri­tional pro­fes­sion­als, med­ical and health care pro­fes­sion­als and the gen­eral pub­lic. The mis­sion and vision of the Academy’s VNDPG is to opti­mize global health and well-being by cre­at­ing and dis­sem­i­nat­ing veg­e­tar­ian nutri­tion edu­ca­tional mate­ri­als, sup­port cut­ting edge research on plant-based and veg­e­tar­ian diets and develop influ­en­tial pub­lic policy.

In addi­tion to Dr. Westerdahl’s elected posi­tion as head of the sci­en­tific veg­e­tar­ian group, he received a spe­cial recog­ni­tion as a Fel­low of the Acad­emy of Nutri­tion and Dietet­ics. The Acad­emy rec­og­nizes its mem­bers as a Fel­low when they have made sig­nif­i­cant con­tri­bu­tions to the field of dietet­ics and have lived up to the Academy’s val­ues of cus­tomer focus, integrity, inno­va­tion and social respon­si­bil­ity. This des­ig­na­tion rec­og­nizes Dr. Westerdahl’s com­mit­ment to the field of dietet­ics and cel­e­brates his pro­fes­sional accom­plish­ments and pur­suit of life-long learn­ing in the sci­ence of nutrition.

Throwback Thursday: Three Cheers for Good Health!

Filed under: Uncategorized — admin @ 5:11 PM

Throw­back Thurs­day: Three Cheers for Good Health!

This week for Throw­back Thurs­day, we’re shar­ing a fun photo from the Bragg Photo Archives — Patri­cia Bragg, Petite Organic Cheer­leader! We will also share an excerpt from the arti­cle, Petite Organic Cheer­leader, from New Zealand’s Sun­day Star Times.

 

ra-ra-ra

 

Dr. Bragg knows her stuff. What slo­gans such as “Don’t Panic, Go Organic,” and “Your Health is Your Wealth” lack in sub­tlety, they make up for in com­mon sense.
The basic tenets of her creed are pretty obvi­ous: Eat fresh, organic food, fast one day a week drink­ing only dis­tilled water to cleanse the sys­tem, exer­cise daily, breathe deeply, and learn to med­i­tate and relax.  Dr. Bragg also cam­paigns on sev­eral envi­ron­men­tal and polit­i­cal plat­forms. While most Green­peace mem­bers wouldn’t prance around be-flowered and bare­footed, they might the­o­rize on the fol­low­ing: Pes­ti­cides on pro­duce and chem­i­cals in processed food are sus­pect and cause can­cer; flu­o­ride in drink­ing water is dan­ger­ous and pes­ti­cides harm humans, wildlife and the earth. “There are mil­lions of farm acres with dead soil killed by toxic chem­i­cals and pes­ti­cides through­out Amer­ica!” says Dr. Bragg.
