Book Talk with Dr. Aruna Uprety

"The food you eat can be either the safest and most powerful form of medicine or the slowest form of slow poison." –Ann Wingmore.

Dr. Aruna Uprety is a public health specialist, women's rights activist, and a strong advocate of healthy eating habits and lifestyles. On 8th May 2018, Dr. Uprety delivered an informative talk on her book, 'Book Title here,' in the David J Rusk Library at Thames International College.

Dr. Uprety is the founder of Rural Health and Education Services Trust (R.H.E.S.T), which works to prevent trafficking and improve reproductive health, and one of the leading voices against 'Chhaupadi' in the Accham District. She writes a health and nutrition column for The Kathmandu Post. (Book details?)

Dr. Uprety began her talk by asking her audience about their eating habits, and if they were aware of the benefits or the dangers of the food they consumed. "The problem with this generation is that many prefer easy, fast and cheap food rather than healthy home-cooked meals," she said. Her book debunks the nutritional value of junk food and energy drinks fabricated by commercials, and details the adverse effects of food easily available in the market.

With real life examples for readers to resonate with, the book drives home the message that prevention is better than cure. Dr. Uprety wrapped up her talk by requesting her audience to adopt healthier lifestyles.
