Oxford Fellow Gives Nutrition and Health Talk at NMU

Wednesday 18, 2015

Dr. Paul Clayton, an Oxford Fellow with the Royal Society of Medicine, will present “Dietary Shifts and Changes in Public Health Patterns” at Northern Michigan University. The event is scheduled for 7 p.m. Monday, Nov. 30, in the Jamrich Hall auditorium. The public is invited. 

Clayton is a Fellow with the Institute of Food, Brain and Behavior at Oxford. His publications include Health Defense, After Atkins, Natural Defenses and Inflamm-ageing. He has trained the pharmacists in Britain's largest chemist chain in preventative nutrition. Clayton designs clinical trials for nutritional therapies at leading teaching hospitals and lectures widely on nutrition and health. He states on his website, I believe that it is possible to stay healthy into ripe old age and to prevent, stabilise and even perhaps to reverse, many of the chronic degenerative diseases. Underpinning all my research and advice is this simple fact: Given the right nutrition and lifestyle, our bodies have amazing powers of self-healing and regeneration.” 

Clayton works with leading doctors and scientists around the world, designing and supervising pre-clinical and clinical trials of pharmaco-nutritional interventions. He is a former chair of the Forum on Food and Health at the Royal Society of Medicine and former senior scientific advisor to the British government’s Committee on the Safety of Medicines.

The NMU Departments of Sociology and Political Science, along with the School of Nursing, are sponsoring this presentation.
