  • I DREAM la o societate care prioritizează alimentația din grădinițe, școli, spitale, cât și acasă.

quotes

Este un drept fundamental al fiecărui om să se bucure de cel mai înalt standard de sănătate.

“The enjoyment of the highest attainable standard of health is one of the fundamental rights of every human.”

 

Education and Information

Trusted, verifiable, useful information is the gateway towards positive and constructive change. This is why I chose to dedicate a large portion of my time to promoting the importance of nutrition. How is your health influenced by nutrition? What do the leading medical treatment, education and research institutions in the world have to say about this? Who should you trust? What is a ”healthy diet”, really? Nothings brings me more joy than putting people on a balanced, confusion-free, science-based path towards making lasting changes for better health and chronic disease prevention.
