Health and Nutrition


A broader view on nutrition

What are the health effects of organic food products and natural medicine? Research into the interrelationships between agriculture, nutrition and health can help to define better health promotion and disease prevention strategies. That is why the Louis Bolk Institute does research on the effects of diet on allergies, diabetes, asthma and obesity.

Our systems approach enables us to take a broader view on nutrition and health. We also have extensive experience in research on the health effects of lifestyle and complementary medicine. Health related charities, pharmaceutical companies as well as governments turn to us for advice and research. We work in close collaboration with Wageningen University and Research Centre WUR, and other Dutch research institutions such as TNO.
