Diet-Related Disorders [electronic resource]: Type 2 Diabetes, Obesity, and Celiac Disease

This program examines three common diet-related disorders and their relationship to what people eat and drink. The causes, characteristics, and treatment of obesity, type 2 diabetes, and celiac disease are discussed, along with strategies for their prevention. With an emphasis on breakfast, snacks, and gluten-free alternatives, students will learn how to eat without reaching for convenience foods, and that using a "traffic light" approach allows for the occasional treat. Balancing exercise with computer time is urged. An on-screen summary at the end of each segment makes this video an especially effective teaching tool.

Viewers encounter a wide range of experiments, case studies, and historical evidence, including Dutch birth records and testimonials from WWII that point to the epigenetic effects of starvation. Findings from animal and human nutritional studies, as well as evidence involving diet habits and environmental threats around the globe, are also presented. DNA methylation, the "on-and-off switch" of the epigenome, and other important concepts are featured.
