MA in WPHC – Nutrition


Additional comments from Mike Sheldon

Cultures and Nutrition.

 Think of three different sets of people groups or cultures with which you are familiar.
(For me I could choose: poor single mothers in the east-end of London having to rely on food banks; University students who don’t know how to cook and always eating “fast food” e.g. McDonalds; and a family in Uganda with a small plot of land, little money and 4 growing children)
Each of these groups face different nutritional challenges and one aspect of being a health care worker is enabling people in different circumstances to get the best nutrition in the circumstances.
Choose three groups of your own and outline their nutritional challenges and how they might change to produce better health.

Biblical basis for health and nutrition

The Bible is a good example of a history book which describes the good and the bad of a particular culture – mainly the Israelites. Think of some references to advice and “laws” about food. How did they arise, what was their purpose, and do they still apply today?
Much of the teaching of Jesus and the NT expands and seems to correct some of the earlier laws and sayings about food.
For example - how do you interpret Acts chapter 10. When God says “Get up Peter – kill and eat these forbidden animals “ does this actually mean to change his diet or is at a reference to going to the gentiles as well as the Jews?
Can you find 3 Biblical principles related to eating, nutrition and health?
To start you off – what does the Bible say about fasting, and is that related to health?

The “truth” about nutrition

 You have read “The China Study” by T Colin Campbell. This is a good starting point for discussion about nutritional studies, their scientific rigour, analysis of results and interpretation.
Also read a critique of this book from the “other camp” – for example www.cholesterol-and-health.com/China-Study.html
This web site is very one sided and is critical of the China Study. There are many links to other opinions and their critics and some answers from Dr Campbell. Research this whole area and write down your conclusions.

The main point for me is – How do I decide which study is closest to the truth? And linked to that is the question – “Does this apply to all people groups or just the ones studied”, and so - Can you extrapolate from a study in China to all people in the world?

As with any scientific study we need to decide what is good science (and that can be very difficult); read the counter arguments, and then make notes of advice which is sensible to put into practice. But always keep an open mind.

FINALLY – what are the nutritional guidelines you wish to follow personally, and is it right to impose these on other people? Find some basic nutritional principles to use in health-care – for example: “Any diet which produces obesity must be changed as obesity is linked to many diseases and health issues.” List these important principles and be prepared to defend them.
