“Health for Everyone”
World Health Organization describes Health as “a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being”. Hence health not only refers to the absence of disease or infirmity, but also means the complete physical, mental and social well-being of a person.
For people to live a healthier life; healthy and high quality foods, adequate and balanced diet as well as physical activity and an active life efforts are becoming more common every day.
But physical activity and active life among these basic components can be disregarded nowadays, and our dietary habits and foods are blamed for the numerous health issues. A fog of distrust is built around the foodstuff we consume with the statements of people who are not experts on the subject and with the involvement of media, and questions rise in the minds of consumers.
Our role as the experts on health, nutrition and food is to enlighten the society with science based correct information against the groundless assertions and accusations. Reason for is that the urban legends and myths built on the information pollution are threatening the physical, mental and social wellbeing all around the world.
The Association of Health for Everyone
is aiming to inform the society in the light of scientific data, and contribute to the improvement of health and wellbeing.
In line with this purpose, we hope that we will meet at our Health and Nutrition Biennial on 13-14 November 2014 in İstanbul which will be organized with the participation of relevant parties.
We want to emphasize that the participants from academia, public sector and private sector will analyse the subject in all aspects, and your participation, contribution and support is highly important for us.
