Nutrition education

The German philosopher, Ludwig Feuerbach, stated “We are what we eat”. Therefore, we should always choose the best foods for us. This is not only important for our overall health and physical fitness, but also, to prevent and overcome cancer, one of the leading causes of death worldwide.

Improper nutrition is the cause of about 35% of all cancers.

We live in a world in which the consumption of food is often excessive and of poor nutritional quality; two factors which can result in serious diseases.

NUTRITION EDUCATION
The Bologna Branch of LILT organizes nutrition courses on request, designed to educate you on the importance of healthy lifestyles in the prevention of cancer and other diseases.
