Real progress to prevent diet related NCDs requires food systems to be transformed so that nutritious, safe, affordable, and sustainable diets are available to all. Researchers from the department of global public health of Bergen studied the impact of food choice on life expectancy. They found that changing from a typical western diet to optimised diets could translate into more than a decade increase in Life Expectancy (LE) for young adults.
C3 was joined by Professor Srinath Reddy, founder President of the Public Health Foundation of India, for our next international seminar. Professor Reddy is an Adjunct Professor of Epidemiology at Harvard. We discuss why and how we should effectively implement the knowledge we already have, to prevent and control NCDs. This requires a bidirectional relationship between knowledge and action. It requires multi-disciplinary collaboration and multi-stakeholder participation in the research process. Community engagement is pivotal. With NCDs being the leading cause of disability and death worldwide it begs the question with everything we know, why isn't more being done?
