“I was drawn to participate in the RICHFIELDS project as it was an introduction to a whole new world for me. It was the connection between the research being done by RICHFIELDS and commercial projects I’m working on that motivated me to share ideas and help the project. I believe it is very important to find the link between healthy food and healthy homes.”

“Dietary risk factors dominantly contribute to the non-communicable diseases (NCDs) burden and are responsible for the most Disability Adjusted Life Years (DALYs). Most of the risks may be avoided when having proper information about food. So the process that brings together the information about food and public health makes RICHFIELDS one of the projects that are and will be in my focus for the period to come.”

“As part of everyday life there is so much data already being gathered that is relevant to population health, an infrastructure that allows this data to be accessed, with the ethical and governance issues taken into consideration, will bring significant benefits to research and to our understanding of health.”

“This project is of importance, as food (purchase, preparation and consumption) is key in our existence and our health. The scope of the right availability and use of food has an impact on the social, political and economic aspect and hence the stability in our world. It defines health and prosperity.”
