FAB WEBINAR - Feeding Humanity: The Key Role of Nutrition in the Mental Health Crisis

Professor Michael A Crawford PhD, FRSB, FRCPath

A FAB Research Live Webinar and Q&A session - with Professor Michael A Crawford PhD, FRSB, FRCPath


Professor Michael Crawford has been warning about the risk of a global mental health crisis fuelled by poor nutrition - for over fifty years. His predictions - based on sound scientific evidence - have proved all too accurate.  

"It's been rammed down our throats that protein is important, but post World War II, research in nutrition has basically come from the animal industry and various agricultural interests.

Protein is not the issue. The issue is the brain - which requires our diets to provide the right balance of essential fats. Because the priority for Homo sapiens is brain growth, not body growth.

But how do we restore brain growth effectively and sustainably - and quickly?

Hear Professor Crawford's compelling arguments on :

  • why the current worldwide decline in brain health was entirely predictable
  • and crucially, what we need to do to reverse it - so that humanity has a viable future.


A recording of this live event will be available afterwards to all who book (and to subscribing FAB Associates)

- along with access to slide handouts and other supplemental materials aimed at providing a better understanding of this global crisis and the solutions that we can all play a part in implementing, before it's too late.

So if you can't join us for the Live Event, you can still access this Webinar HERE.

Find out what the latest evidence shows about:

  • The role of the food environment in human brain evolution - and why typical modern-day diets promote mental ill-health, and declining intelligence. 
  • How early life nutrition shapes brain development and function for life - and the essential nutrients that many mothers-to-be are lacking 
  • The causal links between poor nutrition and difficulties with mood, behaviour and learning - including developmental and mental health conditions such as autism, ADHD, depression and dementia
  • Why the solution lies in sustainable 'farming' of the oceans, to produce more food from marine sources, naturally rich in the key brain nutrients - which enabled the evolution of the human brain in the first place.
