Department: Institute of Liberal Arts & Sciences
|Class Time:||2014 Fall Thursday|
Main theme of this seminar: Eating and Health
Eat healthy, live healthy! This means that eating has a great impact on our health. The basic meaning of eating is to obtain nutrients, but it includes the meaning of eating behavior. Therefore, it is also important for our health how to eat, including combining and cooking of foods, timing of eating, etc.
The eating habits are related with the occurrence of metabolic diseases such as obesity and diabetes.
In this seminar, I hope that students obtain a variety of knowledge about health in relation to eating habits and efficacy of exercise in order to prevent life style-related diseases.
