Eater's Digest: The Ins & Outs of Human Digestion

  • The Farmhouse Kitchen 426 Penn Avenue West Reading, PA, 19611 United States (map)

Learning about how our body works is an important aspect of obtaining and maintaining optimal health. One system that is often overlooked is our digestive system. During this presentation, we'll discuss the journey food takes from ingestion to evacuation, how our body reacts when we eat, and the communication that occurs between other systems at each part of the digestive process.  We'll gain a better understanding of how and what we eat affects our metabolism, immune system, stress response, and disease risk factors.
