Chronic diseases such as diabetes, cardiovascular conditions and dementia are on the rise around the world. This is partly attributed to aging populations and evolving social behaviours including sedentary lifestyle. This puts tremendous healthcare burden to the society.

Significant resources have been invested to identify and develop new and often technologically advanced interventions to address these diseases. However, it pays to revisit and go back to basics. Research has shown that the importance of one’s lifestyle has been severely underestimated. We could be even healthier, feel better and live even longer.

Based on scientific evidence, Professor Mai-Lis Hellénius has written several books on the importance of movement, food, and stress on our health, where she provides the best advice for a long and healthy life. Our lifestyles, diet, and interests, play a significant role in our health and age, in fact a much larger role than was previously imagined. For more than 35 years, Professor Hellénius focus has been on lifestyle issues, advocating that the right diet and exercise is able to prevent all kinds of ill health, such as cancer, dementia, Type 2 diabetes or cardiovascular disease.
