‘One health’ in one book

Dr Alastair Woods of Deansgrange Dental Clinic and his sister Dr Vanessa Woods, a scientist and consumer engagement professional, have launched a new book, which they say is aimed at engaging children, teachers and parents in the importance of oral disease prevention and health promotion.

Irish Food From A-Z is a book of poems that tells the story of Irish farming, food culture and health. Vanessa says that the book enables some of the more difficult concepts to be grasped by students of a younger age, so that they have an introduction to the concepts of soil, plant, animal, dental, human and environmental health as key and interlinked components of the food value chain.
Irish Food from A-Z is available from www.vbwoodscommunications.com at a cost of €12 per book.
