Hidden Hunger - Conference Monday 10 November 2014

Monday 10 November 2014 The Wimpole Lecture Theatre

at the Royal Society of Medicine, 1 Wimpole Street, London, W1G 0AE

Organised by the Food & Health Forum and the McCarrison Society

 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


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