Having established the case for the need to collect much more comprehensive and accurate data, how exactly do we go about doing that, and making the results that we find meaningful and useful in a practical way?
Our initial phase, started in the first year of research and to be completed by August 2021, consists in the collection, organization and structuring of data using a state-of-the-art approaches, giving life to a detailed database. This large mass of data will be analyzed resorting to highly sophisticated tools borrowed from scientific fields that traditionally are not associated with the sustainable and healthy nutrition sector; for example, complex systems, networks, big data and artificial intelligence. Effectively this means going way beyond the observation techniques employed today, and getting down to finding the true relationships at a chemical level in our foodstuffs, crucial to understand how, in turn, they affect our bodies.
The second phase, to be completed by June 2022, will be to develop a unique and accurate description of the way that the chemical composition of foodstuffs relates to, and affects, chronic diseases (such as diabetes and obesity).
The third and final phase, to be completed for August 2022 will be to create a test project, where the aim will be to prove the findings as defined in the second phase. The overall goal is to demonstrate via the test project results confirmation of the findings that may potentially turn upside down the traditional way of producing and farming food.
