The overall aim of our research is to increase knowledge on how diet, lifestyle and environmental pollutants affect our health. We combine epidemiological research with expertise in nutrition, toxicology and environmental medicine. By establishing this new area of research, we can further improve the understanding of factors of importance for the prevention of major chronic diseases and for sustainability.
