The Smith Art Gallery & Museum, Dumbarton Road, Stirling

I am writing to all members of the Scottish Group to give you details of our final Public Meeting.Aou will have learned from our August newsletter, our founder, Dr Walter (Watty) Yellowlees, died at the end of May. We have decided to hold our final meeting in his memory.

Watty was a great proponent of the benefits to health of wholemeal bread. He persuaded his local baker to produce a wholemeal loaf which he promoted to his patients. The people of Aberfeldy called “The Doctor`s Loaf”. So the title of the meeting is “The Doctor`s Loaf”.

The main speaker at this event will be Andrew Whitely, author of “Bread Matters”. He has called his talk “The Unbearable Lightness of Baking”. His talk with highlight how modern industrial baking methods have removed much of the nutrients from mass produced bread through refinement and hybridisation. He will also talk about the wisdom of people like McCarrison, Cleave and Watty in pointing out the importance of wholesome bread. He will also mention his “Scotland The Bread” project which is designed to help ordinary people to produce wholesome bread.

The Smith will be open from 10.30 am with refreshments on arrival. The meeting will start at 11am. A soup and sandwich lunch will be provided, but there is limited seating in the dining area. Admission will be £5 which will be collected at the door. Lunch is also £5. Those wishing to have lunch should send £10 to myself by 10 th November. There are eating establishments in the area.

In the afternoon we will hold our AGM which will start at 2pm with a talk by Sue England, who is a member of the Scottish Group. Sue has legal experience with regard to EU law. Her talk will be about how we as individuals can influence nutrition policy for Scotland\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'s future. This is a very important topic following on from the recent referendum result.

The SG committee would like to invite members of the Society attending the AGM to join us for a meal after the AGM. This will be a pay for yourself meal. If you would like to join us for this meal please let me know so we have an idea of numbers. I shall be away on vacation until 17 th October,
so please write to me after that date.

Yours sincerely,
Cedric de Voil. Chairman Scottish Group, The McCarrison Society

 Hunger can be in disguise as obesity, as well as hidden socially. Current scientific opinion involves the early detection of poor nutrition ,malnutrition ,as early as possible, perhaps even a generation or two ahead! –  reflecting current trends in epidemiology and epigenetics. 

 

  
National and global strategies are clearly needed. The UK alone has 3 million people malnourished. Obesity’s harm is exceeded over 20 times by mental disorders costing £113 billion. This meeting will explore whether strategy should concur with our evolution, preferring natural foods and regaining some of our seafood loss, "human brain-food".

 

Aim: To review the effects of hidden hunger

 

Objectives:

 

  • To focus attention on the critical stages of conception and early months
  • Sustaining through stages of life
  • Resourcing essential nutrients
