Wellbody Blog

At Professor Wellbody's Academy of Health & Wellness, we understand there's only one thing harder than making healthy behavior changes: Sticking to them! We all need a little help from our friends, and that's the purpose of the Wellbody Blog, a friendly online gathering spot--a community well--where you can dip into health news; wellness tips; recipes; latest research about nutrition, exercise, sleep and hygiene; plus, real stories from virtual neighbors who are also trying to change their lives for the better. Start from wherever you are; share ideas, information, inspiration. At Pacific Science Center, we believe each of us can do something everyday to improve our health and well-being.

Jo Robinson will speak at Seattle's Town Hall on June 17, 2013.

eatingwildsideHumans once thrived on wild plants, but 400 generations of misguided farming methods have bred essential nutrients and fiber out of many modern fruits and vegetables, says Jo Robinson, a nationally recognized investigative journalist from Vashon Island. Robinson has spent the past 15 years delving into research on how we can restore vital nutrients to fruits, vegetables, meats, eggs and dairy products.

In her new book, Eating on the Wild Side, Robinson explores the nutritional history of fruits and vegetables and discusses how the evolution of farming unwittingly squandered essential fiber, protein, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants--leaving us more vulnerable to diseases including obesity, diabetes, cancer, cardiovascular disease, chronic inflammation and dementia.
