DSM Personalized Nutrition Webinar explores Benefits of Nutrition for Employee Health

Parsippany, N.J. — Feb. 18, 2010 — While most individuals generally acknowledge the importance of a healthy diet, they often don’t realize that even small changes can significantly improve overall health.

Employers don’t emphasize nutrition enough either, according to experts at DSM Personalized Nutrition, LLC, which is part of DSM, a global $12 billion firm and leader in nutrition.

In an upcoming webinar, “Nutrition: The Most Important Strategy to Improve Employee Health” scheduled for Thursday March 4, 3pm Eastern Standard Time, well-known M.D. and nutritionist Dr. Terry Grossman joins Ozgur Sancak, M.D., PhD, and personalized nutrition, nutrigenetics and nutrigenomics scientist. The experts will discuss the increasing need for employers to underscore nutrition’s importance within their employee wellness programs.

“Studies show that Americans are, on average, undernourished,” said Dr. Grossman, a leading authority in the fields of wellness, anti-aging and longevity. “It’s a hidden problem of deficiencies in micronutrients, which is exacerbated by fast food consumption, fad diets and general lack of attention among Americans to life-long, healthy eating.”

Poor individual nutrition affects the workplace as well, as employees experience decreased energy, more stress and higher risk of disease. Employers benefit when good nutrition education and support are solid components within employee wellness programs.

Ozgur Sancak of DSM concurs. “Even small, yet meaningful, changes in diet can result in a substantial improvement in overall health.”
