Foods for Disease and Wellbeing Comments

Foodary visitor responses include:

What is “Wellbeing”?

John wrote “I see a lot about food and wellbeing but isn’t this nonsense? I see how food can help some diseases. But after that, surely eating is just about pleasure?”

I responded that I believe pleasure is important. But that’s an important part of wellbeing. I also asked John more about his thoughts on wellbeing. Because it seems too important to me to be dismissed as “nonsense”.

Anyway, there are many studies about wellbeing and food. So if there is enough interest in this, I will summarize research I’ve found so far. Of particular interest to John, I found at least one study relating food, pleasure, and wellbeing[1]. So if you want more information, please use the Feedback Form below.
