Religion and Public health Final Assignment
Following my presentation on last Tuesday, the instructor advise that I include these perspectives in my final papers which is due Wednesday, May 4, 2022 @ 5:00 PM eastern time.
As we said in our meeting, I think a very good theme for you, in your review of the scientific literature, would be to mark the start of secular fasting for health and weight control, when fasting became much more wide spread from a secular approach and idea (ex: BBC 5:2 diet). I think a common name for it is intermittent fasting — there are many forms. This seems like such an interesting development, the adoption of a fundamentally religious practice into secular practice — for completely different purposes! One is to lose the self, the other is to enhance it!
Some information for social media trends of fasting during COVID-19.
Interwove Max Weber perspective of asceticism which he wrote about in his book Sociology of Religion.
