The second 2-day seminar at the University of Helsinki, Finland the 14-15th Sept. 2018

After last year’s inaugural Evidence Based Raw Food meeting we decided to make this in to a yearly tradition. We welcome you to another 2 days filled with the newest research. There is evidence that humans can help both their pets, and themselves, by eating and drinking better or taking neutraceuticals. But also raw feeding risks have again been
researched. This time we have the excellent researcher and lecturer Professor Huub Savelkould from Wageningen University as our main lecturer. Both hes CV and research are impressive!
