About this episode

Lifestyle factors and behavioural changes, such as diet modifications, are gaining interest as methods to modify or even prevent the global progression of chronic diseases, such as heart conditions and type 2 diabetes. Dr Konstantinos Makris (con-stan-teen-os Mah-kris), at the Cyprus International Institute for Environmental and Public Health within the Cyprus University of Technology, and his colleagues conducted a clinical trial to investigate the benefits of eating an organic diet in school children, with findings making an important contribution to this emergent field.
