After-Dinner Presentation: Michael Rossoff speaks on Why Women Live Longer Than Men

On November 12, Macrobiotic Counselor and Licensed Acupuncturist Michael Rossoff will speak on Why Women Live Longer Than Men. On average, women in the U.S. live 5 to 8 years longer than men do. Why? What factors over a lifetime influence this difference? Some scientists credit genetics, others point out that women are often less aggressive and conflict-prone than men, and more inclined to take care of themselves. This lecture will explore the energies of life and how they differ between men and women, from an oriental medicine perspective.

One example of a woman's internal strength is her power to conceive and give birth. Meanwhile, some men lead healthy lives well into their 90s, and in modern times, many women have more post-menopausal diseases, including increasing heart and circulatory diseases. How can we interpret these factors and learn from them? Lifestyle, dietary habits, sleep, emotional responses, along with spiritual and community connections, play key roles. Whether you are a woman or a man, this lecture will guide you to a greater understanding of your potentials.

Michael has been involved in macrobiotics, acupuncture, and Chinese medicine for 40 years. He studied macrobiotics with Michio Kushi in the '60s and '70s. In addition to teaching and counseling, he directed various macrobiotic centers in the Washington, D.C. area for 20 years, and published the macrobiotic magazine MacroMuse for seven years in the 1980s.

Michael studied acupuncture in England in the 1970s, and began practicing in 1978. He was the academic dean and a core teacher for three years at Atlantic University of Chinese Medicine, near his current residence of Asheville, North Carolina. Michael has counseled many thousands of people in the U.S., Canada, Europe, and Israel. Visit his website at:
