India Current Affairs, one of the leading sources of online information about the country, stated that India, in 2010, saw the lowest number of polio cases. There were 41 cases on November 30, 2010, as against the 633 cases in 2009! Such a milestone could not have been achieved without the several nutrition workshops preaching about the benefits of polio drops to save millions of children from paralysis and other physical abnormalities.
Creating awareness about healthy dietary habits is the main aim of most nutrition workshops. Many people, due to their frenzied work schedules and demanding family life, are unable to look after their health needs. For most, breakfast and lunch are no longer two separate meals which have to be taken at a gap of four hours. The two meals have been combined to form ‘brunch’. Such habits adversely impact physiological health in the long term. Therefore, nutrition workshops aim to teach the numerous ill-effects of modern lifestyle.
Benefits of Attending Nutrition Workshops
Nutrition workshops prove to be platforms where people can participate to get enlightened about their health and wellbeing. Some of the main benefits you can enjoy by attending a health workshop are:
Diseases and disorders prevention: There are many diseases and health risks whose causes elude the common people. For example, most fail to realize that a lot of health problems such as, constipation and acne, occur due to water and air pollution consecutively. Nutrition workshops serve to educate people about these fatal causes and also teach ways of counteracting such health hazards.
Lifestyle makeover: Most of the times, smoking, drinking, poor dietary habits and lack of regular exercising leads to different kinds of health hazards including, spondylitis, osteoporosis and diabetes. Such problems can lead to fatal heart attack or stroke. Professionals at a good health workshop will be able to recommend exercises that you can fit into your hectic schedule.
Health analysis: Although nutrition workshops are not individualized, the experts conducting the seminar can definitely chalk out a chart for healthy living on the basis of the general individual requirements.
Query resolution: There are several misconceptions regarding health needs; for instance, people believe that banana is fattening. However, a medium-sized banana has only 0.3g fat content. Such misconceptions can be cleared only in health workshops.
