 Hunger can be in disguise as obesity, as well as hidden socially. Current scientific opinion involves the early detection of poor nutrition ,malnutrition ,as early as possible, perhaps even a generation or two ahead! –  reflecting current trends in epidemiology and epigenetics. 

 

  
National and global strategies are clearly needed. The UK alone has 3 million people malnourished. Obesity’s harm is exceeded over 20 times by mental disorders costing £113 billion. This meeting will explore whether strategy should concur with our evolution, preferring natural foods and regaining some of our seafood loss, "human brain-food".

 

Aim: To review the effects of hidden hunger

 

Objectives:

 

  • To focus attention on the critical stages of conception and early months
  • Sustaining through stages of life
  • Resourcing essential nutrients
