DESCRIPTION: This is not your parents’ biology class. Attendees of this lecture series will learn why frogs are growing extra limbs. How is climate change affecting us? Are allergies and poison ivy worse than normal? Are we overly satiated with food and becoming more medicated as a result? Are we irradiated and alienated by technology? Do you have the thrillseeking gene? Are you suffering from nomophobia? Have you met your microbiome? Tired of being manipulated by media and want to clean up your toxic act? Find the solutions to your pollutions. This series is about you and will examine new discoveries in biology, and will include discussions. Each lecture is interactive involving demonstrations, handouts and class participation.
- Genetics: It is all about you
- Nutrition: Satiation/medication nation
- Longevity: Respiration, recreation, rehabilitation
- Enviroment: Radiation nation
