Did you know? Sweeteners Can Replace the Sweet Taste of Sugar with a Lower Environmental Impact
Consuming too much-added sugar is not just a health issue but is also a concern for our environment.
Non-nutritive sweeteners (NNSs), like aspartame and neotame, may offer a solution. Although health issues around alternate sweeteners are often discussed, their environmental impacts have been less explored.
This groundbreaking study looks into the environmental effects of these sweeteners, marking the first-ever analysis of neotame’s footprint.
Introducing Bio-Streams: Addressing Childhood and Adolescent Obesity in the EU
Bio-Streams, a new Horizon Europe Research and Innovation project designed to address the growing epidemic of underage obesity in the European Union, is excited to announce its official launch.
This groundbreaking project combines data-driven research, prevention measures and community participation to provide a holistic approach to reducing obesity rates among children and adolescents.
Obesity is a chronic relapsing disease that acts as a gateway to other NCDs and is linked with an increased risk of developing breast, ovary, liver and colon cancer.
EASO is pleased to support the European Cancer Organisation-led Interact Europe project, which brings together 33 partners from 17 countries to develop a patient-centred European inter-specialty cancer training programme.
Proactive Strategies for Addressing Childhood Obesity and reducing Future Cancer Risks
EASO is delighted to partner with the European Health Management Association in a new project, PREVENT — improving and upscaling primary prevention of cancer by addressing childhood obesity through implementation research.
EASO is pleased to support this 5 year EU funded H2020 initiative. TIMESPAN, led by scientific coordinator Professor Henrik Larsson (Örebro University), includes 17 partners from across academia, industry, and patient advocacy communities, and aims to foster improvement in clinical management of adults living with with ADHD and co-occurring cardiometabolic disease, including obesity.
