A discussion group for people who like to think twice before jumping to conclusions. Each month we dive deep into a subject with a presenter and a preassigned set of reading/audio/visual materials. Open and honest inquiry on all topics is encouraged and welcomed. The only investment is your time.
We most often meet the third Thursday of each month from 7:30 - 9:30 pm at Mark & Elizabeth England's home at 1194 South 500 East in Salt Lake City.
During the past 20 years the rate of obesity in the United States has dramatically increased. The raising trend in obesity has been observed in children, women, and men of all populations and ethnic groups. The CDC provides an excellent snap shot into the growing epidemic, http://www.cdc.gov/obesity/data/trends.html There are and continues to be many assumptions as to what are the driving forces behind the obesity epidemic with reduced physical activity and increased caloric intake being seen as the major drivers. But could there be additional drivers, are there factors in our human makeup that maybe the cause of this trend. Why is it that some can eat all their heart desires and never gain a pound (we all have those friends), food for thought.
