Diet, disease and healthy eating (25/04/2018)




A masterclass for anyone.

Why are we told to eat less fat, eat less sugar, eat less salt and eat more fibre? This masterclass will explain how diet is related to the major diseases in the UK such as cardiovascular disease, cancer, obesity and diabetes. We will look at the evidence that lies behind the current recommendations for healthy eating, outlined in the Eatwell Guide. You will learn how to make a quick assessment of your own diet. Sugar and fat - find out the latest evidence.
