  • Si mangiava meglio quando si stava peggio? Stories, curious facts and new myths on what we eat

Some say that we should eat like our ancestors did in the stone age, or as centuries ago: more fruit and vegetables, less salt, less sugar, no fats. But is it true that things were better in the past? Now, more than 50% of the population is overweight, almost 20% is obese. Obesity is a threat to health and wellbeing in our region. Should we look back and re-discover some old habits about food, taking advantage of the precious knowledge that we have learned? An opportunity to find out together some curious facts and myths on what we eat with researchers.


  • Francesca Fava, researcher in Nutrition and nutrigenomics (FEM)
  • Claudio Ferlan, researcher in History of nutrition (FBK)
