Food today and tomorrow chapter II

Chapter II: Nutrition and diseases

Cycle of debates supported by the chef Olivier Roellinger

In creating its Foundation, the French Academy of Medicine wished to place at the service of society as a whole its unique ability to bring together, on essential health and social issues and around the best French and international experts, all stakeholders, political, medical, scientific, economic and associative. To fulfil its mission, the Foundation of the French Academy of Medicine (FAM) has chosen to organise debates based on excellent scientific publications or communications, open to the general public (associations, NGOs, companies, patients) and the media and directly relayed to the public authorities, in particular parliamentarians. In addition to their level, these debates are distinguished from other events of the same type by the benefit of the institutional status and the guarantees of credibility and ethics that are recognised at the National Academy of Medicine.

After a first cycle of debates on “Society & Ageing”, and a second cycle in progress on the “Exposome”, the first debate of which dealt with “Health risks linked to chemical pollutants”, the FAM continues its cycle on “Food today and tomorrow”. This cycle of debates has been developed by Professors Catherine Buffet and Gabriel Perlemuter. Both are members of the commission “Digestive system – Food – Nutrition – Metabolic diseases” of the French National Academy of Medicine. The famous Breton chef Olivier Roellinger has accepted to sponsor this cycle and Alain Kruger (journalist, creator and producer of the programme “On ne parle pas la bouche pleine” at France Culture) has honoured us with the honour of leading 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 Organisation, 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 phenomena of malnutrition that now go hand in hand and are linked to poor nutrition.

Chapter II: Nutrition and diseases

Following its first debate, the FAM sought to establish the definition of “eating well,” defined by the quality and quantity of food.

Now it wishes to address three aspects:

• Food as a source of disease
• Eating well in the event of illness
• Individual susceptibility to diet


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