More than a half of the global population will suffer some form of malnutrition by 2030 unless urgent action is taken to improve access to high-quality food, the UN’s Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) has told G7 health ministers.
The lack of physical activity and unbalanced diets can lead to obesity, diabetes, high cholesterol levels, and chronic diseases such as cardiovascular disease and stroke. Today, more than half of Europeans are overweight or obese.
The need for fast, accurate and balanced information is always important. We value EURACTIV's good, independent journalism and support this initiative
Mella Frewen, Director General of FoodDrinkEurope
EURACTIV plays a vital role in bringing Europe closer to its citizens. EURACTIV has long recognised that the story of Europe has to be told across the continent, and not just in Brussels. We need to support a truly European and informed debate.
