Free VSH Lecture: Meat Eating and Mind Games (Maui)

Meat Eating and Mind Games: How Dressing Up Meat Makes Humans Desire It and Lose Our Health Along the Way, but How We Can Win It Back!

Join Dr. Milton Mills for his free talk on Thursday, 9/13/18. His talk is generously sponsored by the Vegetarian Society of Hawaii and is part of their monthly free lecture series. 

Humans have the anatomy, physiology and palate of herbivores! We naturally love and crave the tastes, textures, colors and varieties of various plant foods. Although we often eat meat, we really don't like it! That’s why we are compelled to change its form, taste and texture to make it acceptable, and palatable. But, as medical science has shown us, meat and other animal foods are detrimental to our long-term health, promote chronic disease and lead to premature death. Learn what our biology and psychology are trying to teach us about who we are as a species, and what we should eat for our health, well-being and longevity, as opposed to what many of us choose to eat out of habit, custom and lack of knowledge!

Dr. Milton Mills is a graduate of Stanford University School of Medicine and a practicing Critical Care physician in the Washington, DC metro area. Dr. Mills’ compassionate and encompassing worldview has led him to apply his knowledge about preventative healthcare toward the unique challenges of those who are under-served by the mainstream medical model: minority and less affluent populations. In the past Dr. Mills has served as Associate Director of Preventative Medicine for Physician’s Committee for Responsible Medicine and co-authored published articles on the Racial Bias in Federal Nutrition Policy.  Dr. Mills is a powerful public speaker, an empathetic healthcare ally, and most importantly a foremost advocate for a whole food, plant-based diet.
