V.O. Kaybysheva, Candidate of Medical Sciences, senior research associate at the Research Laboratory of Surgical Gastroenterology and Endoscopy at Pirogov Russian National Research Medical University, gastroenterologist at Moscow City Clinical Hospital No.31: “Eating is humans’ essential need that allows us to replenish our energy reserves, support life activities and ensure synthesis processes, body development and maturation. Taking pleasure in eating is an important component for humans. Providing our body with essential vitamins, minerals, proteins, fats and carbohydrates, food products have a therapeutic effect on our body and act as a medium for the growth of microbiota. At the same time, some components of food products can irritate the gastrointestinal tract or even induce the development of serious diseases collectively known as ‘adverse food reactions’.”
