On May 27, 2022, an online meeting was held between the faculty of the Department of Molecular Biology and Medical Genetics named after Academician of the NAS RK T.K. Raisov and students of the curatorial groups of the 1st and 2nd year of the specialty “General Medicine” with a methodologist of the highest category of the Center for Healthy Lifestyle Formation of the RSE “Hospital of the Medical Center of the Administration of the President of the Republic of Kazakhstan” Turdunova Gulnara Kalimuratovna. This meeting was devoted to the topical topic of rational and proper nutrition.
Gulnara Kalimuratovna told the students about healthy nutrition, which is so often neglected by our students. A healthy diet throughout life contributes to the prevention of a number of non-communicable diseases and health disorders. At the same time, the growth of processed food production, rapid urbanization and changing lifestyles have led to a shift in nutrition patterns. Nowadays, people are consuming more foods high in calories, fat, free sugars and salt/sodium, and many people are not consuming enough fruits, vegetables and other types of fiber, such as whole grains.
G.K. Turdunova answered all the questions of interest, noting that physical health is 50% dependent on lifestyle, which includes the nature of human nutrition. At the end of the meeting Gulnara Kalimuratovna addressed the students: “In a healthy body — a healthy mind! Proper and rational nutrition is not only your health, it is the HEALTH of the NATION!”
