The many aspects of nutrition related to health
Diseases of affluence are putting an increasingly heavy burden on our economy and quality of life. The exploding burden of disease can only partly be explained by the aging population. Are people destined to become chronically ill? A growing group of doctors and scientists assume that the ‘western’ diseases are mainly caused by a mismatch between our current lifestyle and the living conditions in which we evolved.
The first Ancestral Health Symposium Netherlands was held on 26 September 2015 in Groningen in order to put this evolutionary medical perspective on the map in the Netherlands as well. The fifth Dutch Ancestral Health Symposium will be held on Saturday October 2, 2021 with a spectacular line-up!
Tim Noakes*, Gary Taubes, Eric C. Westman, Amy Berger, Yvo Sijpkens and Frits Muskiet have promised to speak. With these speakers and you as enthusiastic visitors, we are assured of a wonderful day full of science and experience!
On this day we put nutrition and lifestyle at the forefront of the fight for health from an evolutionary perspective. What mechanisms are behind the mismatch hypothesis and how do we reverse the trail to degenerative disease?
You can now register for the symposium with an early bird discount. When registering before 01-08-2021 you pay €109 instead of €129!
It is now also possible to submit a proposal for a lecture or a clinic.
We hope to welcome you on Saturday 2 October in Amsterdam UMC – Location AMC to come and experience this great group of scientists and fellow interested parties.
* Tim Noakes unfortunately cannot be physically present: a video recording will be shown followed by a Q&A session via live connection.
