Feedback about the introductory debate of our new cycle of debates: Food today and tomorrow

What is good food?

Diets for healthy people

Cycle of debates supported by the chef Olivier Roellinger

THE FAM WOULD LIKE TO THANK THE HUNDREDS OF PEOPLE WHO ATTENDED THE DEBATE ONLINE.

NONE OF THIS WOULD HAVE BEEN POSSIBLE WITHOUT ITS SPEAKERS, PATRONS, PARTNERS, AND THE FRENCH ACADEMY OF SURGERY, WHICH OPENED ITS DOORS FOR THIS DEBATE.

After a first cycle of debates on the theme of “Society & Ageing”, and a second ongoing cycle on “The Exposome”, the first debate of which dealt with “Health risks linked to chemical pollutants”, the FAM has initiated a new cycle on “Food today and tomorrow”. This cycle of debates was developed by Professors Catherine Buffet and Gabriel Perlemuter. Both are members of the “Digestive system – Food – Nutrition – Metabolic diseases” commission of the French Academy of Medicine. The famous Breton chef Olivier Roellinger has agreed to support this cycle and Alain Kruger (journalist, creator and producer of the programme “On ne parle pas la bouche pleine” on France Culture) has honoured us by hosting it. The reflections raised by food are multiple and concern the health of all populations with a paradoxical situation since, according to the United Nations, in 2018, more than 113 million people in 53 countries were on the verge of famine while more than 2 billion people in the world were overweight. Obesity and undernutrition are two malnutrition phenomena that now go hand in hand and are linked to poor nutrition.

What is good food? Diets for healthy people

It seemed logical to us to start this cycle with this theme in order to ask the right questions. During this debate, the theme of balanced diet for good health was be addressed, highlighting the Foundation’s role in preventive actions through its advice on good practices and its support for associations. In this respect, the role of Nutris-Score in helping people to “eat well” was be discussed. This dietary balance was applied at different stages of life and in specific situations (sport, pregnancy, the elderly, etc.). Alongside this “academic” balance, certain diets, whatever the motivations behind them, also deserve to be discussed.

Moderated by Alain Kruger, journalist, creator and producer of the programme “On ne parle pas la bouche pleine” (France Culture).
