After completing an education in the health care sector I started to notice that we are
really good at making people live longer, but not really that good at securing people’s quality of life throughout the years. Yes we can keep people alive, but is it worth it if the quality of life does not follow along ? Is it worth it to keep people alive if side effects of medications makes life misserable ?
Simultaneously we experienced a boom in life style related diseases – and I started to question if the problem with health today could be nutrition related. Is there a coalation between the ever increasing industrialization of food production and how healthy we are ?
So I started to dig into the subject and what I found was , that yes there probably is a strong connection between quality ( or rather lack of quality) of food and how healthy we are.
My intend with this blog is, to share what I have learned throughout my studies and research and raise questions to research and health claims. The name of the site is a combination of Aceso the ancient greek goddess of the healing of sickness and salus the latin word for health.
