Nutrition, weight and health

UC advocates for healthful living are writing a new definition for the word "environment." The term, they say, is the best way to describe where we live our lives - home, work, school, restaurants, shopping centers, movie theaters, stadiums and more. UC Cooperative Extension is working to raise Californians' awareness about the need to change our environment to reverse the alarming increase in obesity, overweight and associated diseases.



  • University of California sources of information on healthful eating
    UC nutrition, family and consumer sciences advisors and specialists are charged with bringing the latest research-based information on nutrition to the public. They conduct education programs, working especially with California's low-income population, a group prone to overweight and obesity. These experts are also open to working with the news media.
