      Science is helping us understand a lot about nutrition. For example Omega-3 is quite a new discovery – they’re saying now that eating fish is to be encouraged as the Omega-3 in it helps develop a healthy brain. There are all kinds of things like that which we only know now due to the power of Science!

      There are researchers trying to understand how nutrition impact disease risk. For an example, a diet rich in sugar but with omega three fatty acids (good fat) supplements might help obese people.
