On the European Researchers’ Night we will carry out different workshops in which we will talk about the nutrition of the future, the “sustainable food” and the importance and effects of some products on our health, with emphasis onthe impact and key role of intestinal microbiota on human’s health and well-being.
In these workshops, attendees will be able to see the relation between nutrition and sustainability, with a practical workshop in which we will talk about the most important foods that are part of our diet, how they relate to health and how they fit into what we call a “sustainable diet”. After that, we will also discuss the current problem of the high consumption of energy drinks and the potential risks on our health. There will also be a practical workshop on the importance of the gut microbiome and its impact and crucial role at different levels of human health and well-being.
