We all have heard an old saying “you are what you eat”. The fact is our body is constantly changing: some of our cells (like cells lining the stomach) last only a few days. Most of the body’s tissues are under constant renewal and the food we eat becomes the building material of our body. Not paying attention to what you eat eventually leads to health issues. We witness a rise in chronic diseases connected with obesity (like diabetes or cardiovascular diseases) not only in wealthy countries but worldwide.
But food is amazing, just like food science and nutrition. The topics are endless.
