The best perspective for your health

Are you making healthy choices for your life?

A vista can stand for more than beautiful scenery, and instead, like the above image represent what lies ahead. An ideal or a goal to which you can aspire. And this should be based on reality, not a pipe dream.

In the midst of this jungle of nutritional information, offers you objective and well-researched evidence. We want to provide you with information about the links between lifestyle and diseases of affluence — grounded in scientific research that isn’t tainted by industry interests.

Our texts don’t reflect the latest trends in diet and nutrition that will soon be outdated. Instead, our focus is on healthy habits that have been established to be the foundation for long and healthy life.

We do not sell anything (nonprofit foundation).
We only provide you with information that will enable you to form your own educated opinion. (The motivation for this)

What do we really need and what doesn’t work? How and to what extent is our health under our own control and how much is determined by our genes? What genetic dispositions can we change as a result of our diet and lifestyle - like WHPB?

These are the types of questions we answer. However, if you want to gain a deep understanding you will need to be inquisitive, interested, and persistent.

But right now I would like to wish you good health and all the best as you find the path that will lead you there.
