Health Week

ForksKnives

This week Andrews has taken a slight detour from its usual chapel and assembly services to take part in Health Week. As part of this annual tradition, chapels and assemblies are conducted by Mr. Reichert, and the students are given many helpful tips, hints, and strategies for maintaining their health and well being.

“Diet is probably the most important aspect of a healthy lifestyle,” Mr. Reichert said. “There are many different types of diets, and we try to find diets that work for everyone.”

This week, Mr. Reichert chose to show the students the video, Forks over Knives. The video chronicles a groundbreaking research project that, over the course of many years, showed considerable evidence that eating a strictly whole food or plant-based diet can help cure, and in some cases, reverse the effects of degenerative diseases such as heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and several types of cancer.

When I asked why he choose the video, Mr. Reichert said, “It is important to take some time for any major aspect of society. I think it is important to remind people who have bad habits or forgotten old ones to keep up their healthy lifestyles.”

“It opened my eyes to a lot of stuff I wasn’t aware of before I saw the video,” said Junior Nicole Anzures.

Senior Camille Nixon said, “I think it is very informative, and it opens your eyes to the reality of a plant based diet and eating healthy in general.”
