THE STANFORD HEALTH LIBRARY CELEBRATES TWENTY FIVE YEARS

Please join us for an evening with Robert Lustig, MD, and Christopher Gardner, PhD

IN CONVERSATION
THE MODERN AMERICAN TABLE: IS A CALORIE A CALORIE?

We’ve all heard the dictate that a calorie is a calorie regardless of its source. But are all foods truly created equal in terms of how they affect our health and weight?

Given the barrage of competing information directed at us every day, what do we really know about healthy eating?

Robert Lustig, MD, will share his research and join Stanford nutrition researcher, Christopher Gardner, PhD, in discussion about what we put on the American table and why.

Robert Lustig, MD, is Professor of Pediatrics in the Division of Endocrinology at University of California, San Francisco, and the author of Fat Chance: Beating the Odds against Sugar, Processed Food, Obesity, and Disease.

Christopher Gardner, PhD, Professor (Research) of Medicine is a nutrition researcher at the Stanford Prevention Research Center whose research has been investigating the potential health benefits of various dietary components or food patterns, explored in the context of randomized controlled trials in free-living adult populations

Living it Forward: Gifts and Challenges of Survivorship

Presented by Stanford Cancer Supportive Care Program

Finding Familial High Cholesterol Before You Know You Have It

Presented by Stanford Health Library

FH, or familial hypercholesterolemia, is a genetic predisposition to very high levels of LDL cholesterol (the bad cholesterol) that may first manifest itself as a fatal heart attack at a premature age. There are therapies, statin-based, that reliably improve outcomes for patients with FH. But there is a big problem: 90 out of 100 patients who have FH do not know they have it or perhaps even what it is. Many physicians are equally in the dark about the disease and therefore do not screen patients for it. This talk will discuss the condition, its familial qualities, and new research to help diagnosis it before it does damage.
