ESCONDIDO — Dr. Philip Goscienski will give a talk on “Health Benefits of Wine and Chocolate” for the San Diego Archaeological Center’s Second Saturday Visiting Scholar Lecture Series on Saturday, February 14, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Philosophers and poets have gushed over the benefits of wine for centuries and modern scientists are doing the same over chocolate.
Wine, especially the red variety, has hundreds of ingredients that help ward off infection and heart disease. Chocolate really does have health benefits but it is important to know what kind of chocolate and how much is enough.
Dr. Goscienski retired from the Navy with the rank of captain and was head of the Infectious Diseases Branch in the Department of Pediatrics at the Naval Regional Medical Center in San Diego.
Areas of self-study have included nutrition, exercise physiology, anthropology and the development of human languages.
He currently serves on the San Diego Archaeological Center’s Advisory Board. His award-winning book “Health Secrets of the Stone Age” is available at the Center’s gift shop.
Dr. Goscienski is a certified instructor in CPR for both the American Red Cross and the American Heart Association. He is the medical director of a Public Access Defibrillation program in Oceanside, where he resides with his wife, Pat. They have five children and six grandchildren.
This lecture is free for Center members; suggested donation for non-members is $5. Light refreshments will be provided.
