Tuesday afternoon, January 11, the folks of Summerlea and surroundings were treated to a
discussion by Dr. Joe Schwarcz of McGill University's Department of Chemistry, as he
spoke about "You Are What You Eat", sponsored by the Serendipity Group of the Summerlea
United Church Women. |
Author of five books and a weekly newspaper column, and popular on TV and radio, it soon became evident that Dr. Schwarcz's reputation as a popularizer of chemistry and its implications for real people is richly deserved. Ever the scientist, he enthralled us with his humorous illustrations of the need for accuracy in the search for truth in diet as in all things scientific.
Our thanks to Dr. Schwarcz and to the Serendipity Group for this very informative and enjoyable presentation.
