Dietary Supplements Topic
of June 2 Sunday Science Program
Dietary supplements used to be found only in so-called ‘health food stores’ until they became part of the mainstream diet of many Americans and people worldwide.
According to the Council for Responsible Nutrition, about 68 percent of adults in the United States take some dietary supplements on a regular basis, with or without the advice of a doctor.
But what supplements are necessary for good health, and under what circumstances? How does one decide between the various supplements and different brands found on grocery store shelves and pharmacies everywhere?
Dr. William Schroeder, D.O., of the Heart of the Rockies Regional Medical Center, will present ‘Making Sense of Supplements’ at the Central Colorado Humanists June 2 Sunday Science program at the Salida Scout Hut, 210 E. Sackett Ave., beginning at 10 a.m.
Dr. Schroeder is a Physician who has delved into the supplement world to find out how best to help his patients. He has a degree in molecular biology and an associate degree in Integrative Medicine under Dr. Andrew Weil at the University of Arizona.
The Central Colorado Humanists sponsor the Sunday Science presentations the first Sunday of each month, with topics understandable by scientists and non-scientists. A discussion and light refreshments will follow the talk. Admission is free, while donations to help defray costs are always welcome. Doors open at 9:30 a.m. so that the program can begin promptly at 10 a.m.
