This Month: Making Sense of Supplements
For our June Sunday Science program, Dr. William Schroeder, D.O., a physician at Heart of the Rockies Medical Center, will speak on the subject ‘Making Sense of Supplements’.
Supplements have been around for a long time. In modern times you could find a variety of them only in health food stores. Today, they have become a mainstream item you can find in any grocery store or pharmacy. Approximately 68% of all adults in the United States report taking dietary supplements on a regular basis, according to a survey by the Council for Responsible Nutrition (https://www.crnusa.org/). With reports of soil depletion, and the proliferation of fast food and junk food, the supplement industry has taken off. With so many choices and so many brands, deciding what’s best for us is overwhelming.
Dr. William Schroeder, D.O., a physician at Heart of the Rockies Medical Center in Salida, 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 the famous Dr. Andrew Weil at the University of Arizona.
The Central Colorado Humanists promote Humanism, a rational philosophy, informed by science, guided by reason, inspired by nature and art, and motivated by compassion.
CCH affirms the dignity of each human being and support the maximization of individual liberty and opportunity consonant with social and planetary responsibility. They advocate the extension of participatory democracy and the expansion of the open society, standing for human rights and social justice.
