A great honor for us
HARVARD SCHOOL OF PUBLIC HEALTH U.S.A 24/01/2018
Sakellaropoulos Organic Estates is participating in the Mediterranean Diet Intervention Trial, implemented by the School of Public Health of Harvard University, U.S.A., for 3 years, with 44 fire stations of the Indianapolis Fire Department (IFD) and in certain other groups of firefighters.
There are approximately 1000 volunteer firefighters participating in this research study named “FEEDING AMERICA’S BRAVEST”.
Μore than one of every three firefighters in the US is obese and heart attacks are the number one line of duty killer,far ahead of burns and dangerous gases in fire smoke.
The goal of this study is to prove that changing dietary habits with scientifically proven means in certain groups of people who have a high risk of disease and primarily heart disease during their working hours, such as firefighters, will decrease the risk factor in high and remarkable rates.
It is a great honor for Sakellaropoulos Organic Estates to participate with their olive oil in this research study at the Harvard School of Public Health.
It is our intention that with the completion of this very significant study from the School of Public Health of Harvard University, that the organic olive oil from Sakellaropoulos Organic Estates, will have contributed, even in the slightest, to further health improvement.
