“Food as Medicine” a Presentation by Dr. Shad

November 19, 2017, in Videos > Talk, by

In this talk, Dr. Shad (Farshad Fani Marvasti MD, MPH) explores the role of “Food as Medicine,” the interplay with the Baha’i Writings and an update on the state of the science with respect to food as medicine in the care and prevention of disease. The talk draws on his experience as a practicing physician, researcher and medical educator to look at selections from the Baha’i writings as well as evidence from emerging scientific theories and research in this field of medicine.

It publishes a peer-reviewed journal, ‘The Journal of Baha’i Studies’, occasional books and monographs, as well as other publications.

Hope Dr. Shad and colleagues check out food as medicine for brain health too, see for example, http://www.truehope.com or Dr. Charles Popper of Harvard Medical School, 20 years research and experience now
