Dr Sue Beckers will speak on how eating natural foods and avoiding sugar and processed food promotes well-being and good health

TURN Lyme Green will host a talk by retired GP and nutrition practitioner Dr Sue Beckers, who will discuss ‘The Changing Landscape of Food & Health’.

Dr Beckers is well-known in the local area having worked as a GP in Charmouth for 30 years with her husband Martin.

She will present her talk on how eating natural foods and avoiding sugar and processed food promotes well-being and good health on Tuesday, April 19 at The Driftwood Café in Lyme Regis Baptist Church, starting at 7pm.

This is the second of a series of talks this year which Turn Lyme Green is hosting on the theme of Sustainable Food and Farming, which looks at how food and its production can affect our personal health, the environment and animal welfare.

“This is such an important subject when considering a sustainable and healthy future for us all,” said Laura Noel, chair of Turn Lyme Green.

“It is thought on average that food can make up to 25% of our individual impact on the climate. The choices we make, perhaps to buy local, eat seasonally, reduce food waste, processed food and red meat can make a real difference.

“Our buying choices can support farmers who we believe are doing the best for food quality, animal welfare and the environment, not just the land but our rivers and wildlife too.”

Entry to the talk will be free, although donations will be welcome, and refreshments will be available.
