Miguel Ángel Martínez, Full Professor of Preventive Medicine and Public Health of the University of Navarra, will analyze on Tuesday, April 2, the main myths and realities about nutrition and health.

According to data of the World Health Organization (WHO), more than 1.9 billion adults are overweight and 650 million are obese. Meanwhile, more than 41 million children under the age of five are overweight and obesity is already a worldwide epidemic.

Thus, Professor Miguel Ángel Martínez, Full Professor visitor at Harvard and director of group of research CIBEROBN, will analyze ten widespread myths about nutrition to determine their scientific validity: are nutritional recommendations pure fashion, is it true that there is no healthy per diem expenses without dairy products, should egg consumption be banned as a "cholesterol bomb" and coffee consumption in people at high vascular risk, are nuts and olive oil fattening, are white bread, pasta and coffee "cholesterol bombs" and should they be banned in people at high vascular risk? Should the consumption of "cholesterol bomb" eggs and coffee be prohibited in people at high vascular risk, are nuts and olive oil fattening, are white bread, pasta and rice the flagship of the Mediterranean per diem expenses , is it the per diem expenses or the genes, or is it normal to put on weight with age?

The goal of this lecture series is to provide information to the society, in first person and from the scientists themselves, on topics of research that are present in the media and that raise concerns about their possible impact on daily life.

The session on nutrition and health with Miguel Ángel Martínez will take place at 7 p.m. at auditorium of Sciences Building (Hexagon Building). Access is free of charge. At the end of the session, the professor will sign copies of his latest book, Salud a ciencia cierta.
