Safe and healthy food

Food has important effects on human health. Wageningen UR carries out research in a variety of fields to find out how food can be made even healthier and to show the effects of healthy food. Obesity, diabetes, heart failure and coronary diseases are all examples of health problems that have a connection with food.
Food safety is also very important to human health. Illegal or inappropriate use of certain compounds in the food chain can cause societal unrest. Wageningen UR research is aimed at techniques to guarantee food safety and to diminish the use of (crop protection) products in the food chain.
