Club News: Berwick Home Benefit FCE
Submitted by Edith Ketter
Ruth Meyer hosted the June 11 meeting of the Berwick Home Benefit FCE at the Apostolic Christian Home West Village.
Glennis Lippert gave the lesson, “Is a dietary supplement the right choice for me?” to 35 guests and members. A doctor’s prescription is not needed to buy dietary supplements. Some ads for dietary supplements in magazines or on television seem to promise that these supplements will make you feel better, keep you from getting sick, or even help you live longer. Sometimes there is little, if any, good scientific research supporting these claims.
Dietary supplements may give you nutrients that might be missing from your daily diet. But eating a variety of healthy foods is the best way to get the nutrients you need. Supplements may cost a lot, can be harmful, or simply might not be helpful. Some supplements can change how medicines you may already be taking will work. You should talk to your doctor or a registered dietitian for advice before taking a dietary supplement.
Fred Aberle played his guitar and led us in singing some patriotic songs. He also sang some song about fathers.
Refreshments were served. The next meeting will be a potluck meal at Diane and Bill Hanzlicek’s home on Monday, Aug. 13.
