Troppi grassi non fanno bene alla tua salute
Mangiare spesso cibi grassi, anche se gustosi (come salse, fritti, salumi e patatine) non è sempre un bene per il tuo organismo. Preferisci olio (più spesso) e burro a crudo, sono sani e il gusto è assicurato. Anche se abbiamo bisogno di grassi per completare la nostra dieta, è meglio non mangiarne troppi e rischiare di perdere l'equilibrio. Quindi, se il tuo pranzo è stato ricco di grassi, scegli una cena leggera.

In May 2014, the 21st European Congress on Obesity (ECO), hosted by the European Association for the Study of Obesity (EASO), took place in Sofia, Bulgaria. Obesity is one of the fastest developing public health problems of our time and the congress provided an essential platform for discussion on the latest scientific developments in the field. The objectives of the ECO were: to provide an annual forum for the exchange of information about state of the art research in the field of obesity, to identify innovative preventive and treatment strategies to reduce the prevalence of obesity and its associated burden of diseases, and to bring together the experts in the field of obesity research and management. ECO gathers a wide range of audience from clinicians, scientists, health professionals, to opinion leaders and advocacy groups. EUFIC interviewed 10 renowned speakers at the conference, who summarised their work on the obesity problem.

Sugars, a type of carbohydrate, have been making media headlines repeatedly over the last years. Most strikingly, the debate tends to be based on gut feelings rather than solid science, often missing out on key studies and reviews. However, for policy makers to make informed decisions about sugar consumption in relation to health, they require a well-balanced reflection of the current scientific evidence. In this context, the European Food Safety Authority in its 2010 scientific opinion on dietary carbohydrates concluded that current data do not allow setting an upper limit for (added) sugar intake in relation to body weight, dental health and certain adverse metabolic effects.
Sugar is a common and important part of our diet and provides an essential fuel for our bodies. In fact, the brain and the red blood cells need glucose as an energy source since they cannot use fat, protein, or other forms of energy for this purpose. Sugar also makes our diet more palatable by adding sweetness to a large range of foods. As with any nutrient, excess consumption can have a negative health impact. Therefore, sugar should be eaten in moderation. Furthermore, an overall healthy lifestyle encompasses regular physical activity alongside a balanced diet.
To better understand sugars and their impact on health, EUFIC provides a range of information materials that cover many of the sugar-related topics and give an overview of the most recent scientific developments in the field.
