The Mediterranean Diet is acknowledged as the protagonist of the contemporary idea of a healthy life. Its food pyramid represents the best eating pattern that a person can choose, with proven effects on reducing some of today’s major diseases. Its popularity has been growing steadily in Japan and in Asia in general over the last decades, yet it is still far from being incorporated into the eating routine of the mass population.
This symposium aims at bringing together some of the most prominent names involved in the research and promotion of the Mediterranean diet for a confrontation on the state of the art with a particular focus on Japan and Asia.
Featuring live presentations, talks, and panel discussions on the Mediterranean diet seen from different perspectives.
The international panel of speakers comes from a vast range of fields: culinary, medical, nutrition, academia, media.
The symposium will take place in Tokyo on Nov. 19, 2021, and online on zoom + live FB.
