Lifestyles and Prevention

Proper nutrition, along with physical activity and stress management, is critical to our health, especially in terms of prevention.

To clarify the meaning of which is currently being given to the term “welfare” is necessary to refer to the concepts of “lifestyle” and “prevention.” Our capable of being, in fact, is closely related to various factors, very close to each other, which constitute our “way of life”: the quality and quantity of the food and drink we take the daily stress management, the degree physical activity to which we subject ourselves, the kind of work we do, how we spend our leisure time. The concept of “prevention” of disease assumes, on the other hand, more and more importance to the idea of ​​”cure”. In fact, for some diseases widespread in our society we know very well what are the factors that can help us not to contract them, while we do not possess equally effective treatments, or remedies that can eradicate the disease once contracted. For other diseases, however, we know effective treatments, but with contraindications or risky side effects and avoid. It says so in an increasingly undeniable medicine and food science and well-being a reference model that tends to identify and therefore to suggest the correct rules attached and the right behaviors to put into practice that can help us maintain our healthy body.
