National Food Day is celebrated on October 24th and is dedicated to delicious, healthy, and nutritious food that should be on everyone’s table! The goal is to teach people how to build the right diet, produce safe products, and competently farm. The quality of life directly depends on this!
National Food Day has been celebrated since 1973 and was created as an analogue of “Earth Day”. The founders are the Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI), headed by microbiologist and chemist Ralph Nader. Initially, the institution carried out food control, checked standards and talked about the benefits of safe products.
Over time, the scope of the organization expanded and new horizons opened up, such as checking alcohol, supervising restaurants, managing drug control, and studying trans fats that are part of fast food. Many people joined the movement and supported the organization in word and deed, helping to solve many problems. However, there are still new projects ahead!
- CSPI persuaded restaurants to eliminate animal fat from frying foods in 1989.
- Proper nutrition reduces the risk of cancer.
- A well-balanced diet is responsible for a good mood and cheerfulness.
- Avoiding food with trans fats lowers blood cholesterol.
- Organic farming is good for the environment.
- Plant-based milk is very popular.
