There was a round table on a healthy nutrition at Institute of Life Sciences of North-Caucasus Federal University. Chairman of Stavropol Region Committee on Food and Pharmaceutical Industries, Trade and Licensing Andrei Khlopyanov, Director General of Scientific Production Company "Mobitek-M” LLC Irina Lyublinskaya, Deputy Director for Scientific Activity of "Mobitek-M” Stanislav Lyublinsky, and Pro-Rector for Construction and Economical Activities of NCFU Andrei Zaytsev, Director of Institute of Life Sciences Ivan Evdokimov and the staff of the Institute participated in it.

Opening the event Ivan Evdokimov noted that the Center of Healthy Nutrition had been recently founded at Institute of Life Sciences, and participants of the round table had the task to define the directions of the healthy nutrition and healthy lifestyle program which should be developed later.

Drawing attention of the audience to the necessity to work in that sphere Stanislav Lyublinsky emphasized that the existing various nutrition programs weren’t viable: "Despite there are a lot of diets, different products of functional nutrition, and revitalizing technologies, the average age of life in the world is 75 years. Why don’t we live longer? Our way of life doesn’t contribute to it. In fact the category "health” isn’t a medical category, but social one. The share of medicine among the factors that influence health is just 10%, and the main thing of them is nutrition and development of food industry”. Stanislav noted that the only country which correctly worked in that sphere, and the average age of life, 90 years, confirms it, was Japan which is characterized with responsible relation of its citizens to their health, existence of the health industry (first of all, food industry), active support of the state and priority of the medicine activity that is the health of the healthy people. "60% of products in the supermarkets of Japan are functional nutrition products. On the contrary, they don’t invest a lot of money in a pharmaceutical industry. They have much less drugstores than we do, and the products of functional nutrition are mostly sold there. So we also have to turn our physicians into doctors. As it is known, in Latin the word "a physician” means "to treat”, and "a doctor” means "to teach”. Only when we have doctors whose activity will be aimed not at an illness, but at health, we’ll have some kind of wonderful symbiosis of doctors and food industry specialists. And then it will be possible to speak about healthy nutrition”.

According to the Deputy Director of "Mobitek-M”, the structure of social institute "The Health of the Healthy People” shall also include the constant monitoring of characteristics (product quality, ecology, etc.) and creation of the so-called passport of health.

"Together we need to create the health industry that will unite science, production, clinical researches and development of concrete foodstuff. This work is difficult, but having combined our efforts we will be able to achieve fundamental changes of human health, for example, students”, - Stanislav Lyublinsky is sure. "Mobitek-M” company proposed the Institute to sign contracts on research work and hold joint conferences. The staff of the Institute of Life Sciences (Head of Chair of Medical Biochemistry, Clinical Laboratory Diagnostics and Pharmacy Tatyana Bondar, Head of Chair of Anatomy and Physiology Olga Butova, Professors of the same chair Nikolai Belyayev and Lyubov Gubareva) also presented its ideas on the program of healthy nutrition.

"The issue we discuss today is quite burning. Therefore the government of Stavropol region will certainly support your initiative”, - the Chairman of Stavropol Region Committee on Food and Pharmaceutical Industries, Trade and Licensing Andrei Khlopyanov finished the meeting.
