Feed Your Mind @ KCL (7th - 22nd March 2013)

King's College London are hosting a series of lectures on the world food market and the impact it has upon on our lives. Highlights include:

Superfoods and Heart Disease: Wednesday 13th March
In parts of the world, particularly in the Far East, where diets are rich in soya and other plant-derived products, scientists have noted a lower incidence of heart disease.

Proof is in the Pudding, Food Labelling and Healthy Eating: Thursday 14th March
Professor Alan Maryon-Davis, frequent media commentator and King’s expert on food and health policy, looks at the big issues behind the labels.'

Does Healthy Eating Cost More?: Thursday 19th March
Recently, certain foods (e.g. smoothies, probiotic yoghurts) have been marketed that claim to promote health at premium prices. But how good is the evidence that these foods make any difference to health?




Message from the event organisers:
"Food is, quite literally, of vital importance to us all.  It is not surprising, then, that a leading university such as King’s will be home to a very large number of experts whose research is in some way connected with the subject.  This Festival is an opportunity for the College to showcase this research and knowledge in a public setting. I am delighted that the Festival embraces such an astonishing range of subjects, and that so many academics have been inspired by its theme to
engage the public with their work.  Bon app├ętit!
Professor Sir Rick Trainor
