Abstract

Dagfinn is Associate Professor at Bjørknes University College in Oslo and Postdoctoral Researcher at Imperial College London. He has worked for several years in the Continuous Update Project of the World Cancer Research Fund, focusing on large-scale systematic reviews and meta-analyses of dietary factors, obesity, physical activity and smoking and the associated risks of cardiovascular disease, cancer, type 2 diabetes, other chronic diseases and mortality. His main interests are in nutrition, lifestyle and the prevention of chronic diseases and premature mortality.


In this seminar he will explore recommendations regarding intake of fruit and vegetables for the reduction of cardiovascular disease, cancer and mortality, including evidence behind eating 5 servings per day and whether specific types of fruits and vegetables may be particularly beneficial for the prevention of chronic disease. He will also discuss evidence behind intake of grain and nuts.
