Food and Behaviour Research presents a one-day conference on:

Sugar, Fat, Food and Addiction: New Approaches to the Public Health Crisis with Prof. Robert Lustig MD

Date: Thursday 10 July, 2014

Time: 9.30 am to 4.30 pm (registration from 9.00 am)

Venue: The Royal College of Surgeons, Lincoln’s Inn Fields, London WC2A

FAB Research is extremely proud to offer this opportunity to hear from our highly distinguished panel of international researchers and expert practitioners, who will present and discuss potential new approaches to the growing public health crisis, focused on the latest evidence linking food and diet with behaviour.

Our central theme is the controversial issue of whether some nutrients, foods or dietary patterns may actually promote (or reduce) ‘addictive’ behaviours. Sugar has recently come under the spotlight in this respect, although the scientific evidence in this area, and its implications, still remain hotly debated.

Related topics under discussion will include obesity and other eating disorders, alcoholism and other substance use disorders, antisocial behaviour, and other mental health conditions in which impulsivity and poor self-control play a key role, such as ADHD. 

Presentations and discussions will be focused on both the latest scientific evidence and its broader implications for  policymakers, professionals, food industry representatives and the general public.
