NEW YORK - Feb. 20, 2015 - PRLog -- Maria Kopsidas, founder and owner of Cookology, has been certified by Cornell University as a plant-based nutritionist. The certification prioritizes a science-based approach to nutrition geared toward dramatically reducing risk for degenerative disease and improving the quality of life.

The certificate program expands upon Dr. T. Colin Campbell’s book, The China Study, which focuses on the overall “wholistic” approach to health. It illustrates the role of diet in healing and managing disease, the basis for dietary causes of chronic diseases, particularly heart disease, cancer, diabetes and obesity, and clinical solutions for reducing risk.

“Inflammation is the cause of all disease and discomfort in the body,” states Maria Kopsidas, founder and owner of Cookology. “... and people don’t realize how severely their eating habits impact their overall wellness.” she concludes.

Kopsidas is the owner and founder of Cookology, leading culinary institute for kids and adults in the Dulles, Virginia area. The company specializes in teaching families cooking skills and healthy eating habits through the use of organic and minimally processed ingredients; it also has a catering division. Kopsidas obtained the certificate to further advance the company's ideals of wholistic health and clean eating.

“People get so many mixed messages from the media about healthy diets, that it’s easy to get lost, but if we begin to expose some of the practical ideas of a whole-food, plant-based diet and how it could enhance our health care systems and society as a whole, now I think that’d be worth a conversation.”
