Webinarer fra PAN Academy

Her er oversikt over kommende webinarer om kosthold og helse

Usunt kosthold er den viktigste dødsårsaken i den industrialiserte verden.

Omtrent en av fem dødsfall kan tilskrives et ugunstig kosthold.

Kostholdet vårt påvirker i stor grad utviklingen av kroniske sykdommer.

Imidlertid kan medisinstudenter og leger i spesialisering, samt annet helsepersonell, lære en god del mer om sammenheng mellom kosthold og helse enn det de gjør i dag. Derfor lanserte Physicians Association for Nutrition PAN Academy.

Over the past 200 years, the growing human population, and intensification and expansion of agricultural and livestock production, has been accompanied by an increased frequency of the emergence of zoonotic disease. Key drivers of this emergence include: 

  1. increased high-density rearing of same-age animals with high genetic homogeneity, e.g. pigs and poultry; 
  2. expansion of agricultural and other activities into previously naïve environments increasing contact with novel viruses from wildlife; and
  3. increased movements of people and animals facilitating the ease with which emerging pathogens infect new hosts.
