by Nancy Irven, DC
This book on nutrition targets an often neglected segment of the population: teenagers. Despite numerous programs aimed at reducing obesity and improving eating habits in very young children, and adults, few guides are available for high school aged students faced with difficult food choices daily.
In 2000, Nancy Irven, DC, volunteered to serve on the board of a local high school, which specialized in preparing students for a career in health care fields. In that position, she researched and taught students about the importance of nutrition – in words and ways they could accept.
Her book, “Please Don't Eat the Wallpaper! The Teenager's Guide to Avoiding Trans Fats, Enriched Wheat and High Fructose Corn Syrup” is the culmination of her work.
"The experts are now stating that the upcoming generation will not outlive its parents because of current trends of child obesity, diabetes, heart disease and cancer,” Dr. Irven explains. "I feel we must get their attention and do something productive once we get it."
The book has earned high praise from its intended audience as well as their teachers and parents and Irven has appeared on local radio to explain her nutritional concepts. “The students are learning to read nutritional labels on grocery products and think before they put something in their mouths,” she said.
