FELDMAN, GARY (ORGANIC FOOD/NUTRITIONAL SUPPLEMENTS) PARENTS’ GUIDE TO SUSTAINABLE FOOD Health & Fitness- Other,
Life Skills- Food,
Life Skills- Parenting
Are you raising your kids on biotech food? Is their fast food nano-tech? Gary, consumer food educator and innovator in the nutritional supplement retail field, will take you on a virtual tour from seed to plate. Learn the crucial differences between conventional, organic, and GMO (genetically modified organism) food. There is no requirement for GMOs to be disclosed on food product labels. Are you unknowingly filling your shopping cart with GMOs for your kids’ meals? Gary will give you the knowledge you need to identify GMOs when shopping. We’ll discuss the vital role of our food pollinators. There are profound connections between today’s “food” and DNA changes, allergies, chronic health conditions and disease. Learn the effects your food choices have upon people, animals, and the ecosystem – even the human genome. Gary created a first of its kind retail catalog of name-brand vegetarian supplements and cruelty-free personal care products.

Yoga is a superb form of physical exercise balancing strength, flexibility, endurance and relaxation/stress management skills.

The ancient healing arts of yoga and meditation can undoubtedly help countless individuals, who struggle with different anxiety disorders, learning disabilities and behavioral problems. Furthermore, many people are at risk of developing diabetes and obesity.
