“A Macedonia for research”: in July, for each package of fruit salad sold in national Autogrill, the company will donate part of the proceeds to the Umberto Veronesi Foundation to finance researchers working in the field of nutrigenomics, that is the science that studies the relationships between genetic heritage and food. Speaking about the new campaign, launched in these hours, of which he is testimonial, is Marco Bianchi: food-mentor, television face for ‘Linea Verde Estate’ on Rai 1, author of books and audio-video podcasts and scientific popularizer for the Foundation Umberto Veronesi, interviewed by the newspaper ‘La Ragione – leAli alla liberty’.
“It is a way to introduce, first and foremost and without excuses, fruit into our diet, satisfying at least 50% of the daily requirement with just this portion”, says Bianchi, speaking of the campaign. In the interview, the chef also talks about the release of his new book “Journey into the human body, between science and recipes”, published by Harper Collins Italia. “The book – he says – was born thanks to my community during the pandemic. There were many who asked me for nutritional advice to solve targeted disorders (from the stomach, to memory up to anxiety disorders) who became the protagonists of those interminable days of sedentary lifestyle. The book it refers to the game of the human body that we adored as children in which each component of our body was connected to the other but also clearly visible with its specificities. Here, food can really be addressed to each component “.
And on his courage, even in his private life, he comments: “There is nothing more wrong than wearing a mask because, especially in an age that is somewhat artificial like the one we live in, if we become one too … we become ‘ one of many ‘. Instead, if we can distinguish ourselves there is the strong game, which is the game of life “.
