NYC Doctors Are Now Prescribing Fruits And Veggies

nysci:

The new Fruit and Vegetable Prescription program launched at two NYC hospitals this week. Under this new initiative, overweight or obese patients can be prescribed Health Bucks along with nutritional counseling. These Health Bucks, which accrue at $1 per day per family member over a four month period, are redeemable only at NYC farmers markets.

The use of Health Bucks allows for increased access to locally grown fresh food, leading to improved health outcomes for individuals while bringing lasting changes to the local economy.

Patients from the pilot program have already seen dramatic weight loss and other positive changes for themselves and their children. Could this be the default nutritional therapy of the future?

A Worthwhile Activity

One of the benefits of being in a local professional organization is the chance to take part in worthwhile activities. I am proud to have joined a PPP (Public-Private Partnership) a tree planting Activity along the river banks in the locality last June 30, 2013. It’s PPP of an NGO and the local government.

And why I joined? I believed in the activity’s objective of a three-pronged approach to tree planting: soil conservation, carbon sink, and livelihood.

The bamboo, especially the species B. vulgaris is known for its effectiveness in conserving soil and water along the riparian zones. The woven root system of bamboo acts as a sort of cohesive for colloidal particles making the plant suitable protector near rivers. In addition, bamboo trees convert carbon dioxide into oxygen, making it a carbon sink. The bamboo trees also provide raw materials for making furniture and other handicrafts.

I sure had fun planting trees. I hope you also had your three-pronged.
