Consumption – Mediterranean Diet

The obesity platform and the AREFLH

The overweight and the obesity get an increasing number of Europeans. 14 million young European are affected by this phenomenon today.
In the world, 300 million adults are in overweight and, for most of them, suffer from pathologies related to their weight.

That is why the Commission of the European Union (DG SANCO) settled a platform which gathers certain number of companies, non-governmental organizations and associations, to exchange their experiences and contribute to the fight against this plague.

The AREFLH, member of this platform, pleads in favour of a more well-balanced alimentation and of a Mediterranean diet.
