“Healthy Oils and Nutrition Labels”- Mary Evenson at Cafe Inquiry

PUBLIC LECTURE, July 20th, 7pm CENTER FOR INQUIRY, DOWNTOWN INDIANAPOLISMary Evenson, DowAgro Ambassadors, Cafe Inquiry July 2016

CINSO and the Center for Inquiry of Indiana co-host the monthly lecture series “Cafe Inquiry.”



Food gives our bodies essential nutrients we need. Part of our diet must include fats. Are all fats bad? No! We need some fats in our diet because they are one of our main sources of energy and help us absorb other nutrients from the foods we eat. Mary will use a modified version of an interactive demonstration from the DowAgro Science Ambassadors to  inform us about healthy oils from seeds and current work at Dow to improve nutrition.
