Other information

NOTE: This course does not provide medical advice. It is intended to provide
information, education and general interest. It is not a substitute for
professional medical advice, diagnosis or treatment.
We should be living in a time of unprecedented good health. Instead, we
have switched from the mostly infectious diseases of the 19th century to the
chronic, disabling diseases of 21st century. At the same time, we are
overshooting the boundaries that protect our precious planet. Let’s embrace
the wealth of nature around us, rediscover and regenerate what we have
lost and heal ourselves and the planet.”
NOTE: The talks are conducted on Zoom. “Drop in” with your coffee at 9.15
for a chat before we start at 9.30. There will be plenty of time for questions
after the talk.
REQUIREMENTS: An interest in personal and planetary health and an open
TUTOR: John says: “In 2013, two years into retirement, my weight peaked at
108 kilograms. I discovered how to lose, sustainably, 24 kilos. In the process,
I learned more about real health than I had learned in 50 years of medical
practice. I now believe that industrial agriculture and manufactured food are
causing great personal damage and are major contributors to destabilising
our planet. The Friday talk each week in course 5H03 is live but repeats the
previous Tuesday 2H01 talk.

Except on
27 September
and 8 November


These sessions are a repeat each week of course 2H01, providing an alternative time for those who cannot attend on Tuesdays or who miss the Tuesday class
