Red wine is healthy, right? This research continues to be complex and mixed. A term coined the “French Paradox,” discovered in the late 1980s represents the paradoxical epidemiological observation that French people experience lower incidence of coronary heart disease compared to other populations despite the fact that they regularly eat bread, rich cheeses, and consume wine. Since then, much research has come out exploring the subject of the connection between culture, food, lifestyle, and wine consumption. Is it the wine? Are there other factors? It’s important to review the most current research before guiding clients towards or away from their wine.
Join Ginger Hultin, MS, RDN, CSO, for an engaging webinar presentation on April 30, 2020 from 2-3 p.m. EST, as she helps fellow dietitians wade through the oceans of research since this discovery. This webinar is about more than just alcohol. Ginger will help RDs better understand the relationship between wine and health; she will review current guidelines and research on saturated fat consumption; and she’ll dive into recent research on cardiovascular disease around the world. This is a complex topic delivered in an entertaining way so participants walk away with concrete advice on the subject, and are prepared to discuss it with their clients, patients, the media, and peers in the industry.
After completing this continuing education course, nutrition professionals should be able to:
- Explain what the French Paradox is and how researchers discovered this health phenomenon.
- Evaluate current research connecting wine intake to cardiovascular health in France and other countries.
- Describe current alcohol intake recommendations for clients based on the most up-to-date research.
- Discuss and educate patients on the current guidelines on saturated fat research as it relates to cardiovascular disease.
