Food does much more than simply provide you with fuel - it may promote or worsen health. A nutrient-dense diet of whole foods has been shown to prevent many chronic diseases and may help treat some conditions, such as Type 2 diabetes and hypertension. In this "Food is Medicine" virtual series, registered dietitian Melissa Brillhart will explain the impact food has on specific chronic diseases and how to adjust your choices to have a positive impact on your health and well-being.
