Does a healthy diet equal a healthy heart?

Public event


The Royal Society, London, 6-9 Carlton House Terrace, London, SW1Y 5AG


What we eat is key for improving global public health. Current estimates suggest that 30% of chronic disease is preventable through dietary change. Despite this, it’s unclear exactly what constitutes a healthy diet and as a result consumers are often confused about what to eat, a situation muddied by misleading media reports. 

Professor Aedin Cassidy is researching the impact of flavonoids, compounds naturally present in fruits and vegetables, on reducing the risk of developing heart disease. Join Professor Cassidy to discuss her research and the latest developments in nutrition as a tool for improving public health.

What is a Café Scientifique? 

A Café Scientifique is an informal dialogue-based event with a scientist. A short talk by the speaker is followed by audience questions, an interactive activity and discussion for the rest of the event.
