NUTRITION, SAFETY AND HEALTH IN THE MOUNTAIN
by Antxon Burcio, Joana García

Nutrition, safety and health in the mountains, Antxon Burcio, Joana García: Certainly, for many of those who go to the mountains, safety in the practice of their different activities is not very assumed, and this is one of the biggest problems that face in our day.

Antxon Burcio, a complete security expert, has tried to reflect everything he has learned as he says throughout his more than fifty years of activity in the mountains: “from my elders, from my friends, from my mistakes, from the multiple training courses in which I have participated …; in a word, everything learned from my experiences, thanks to which I have enjoyed so much and continue to enjoy every time I go to the mountain ”.

The growing interest in mountain sports seems to have fueled a flourishing market around specific, concentrated and technical functional foods for this type of activity. Since the beginning of the 19th century the food industry has evolved at breakneck speed, its growth has been aimed at being able to supply a wide range of increasingly elaborate products. But are they really adequate? Can we trust that they will meet our nutritional needs? Do we really need them?

Progress in medical knowledge of human anatomy and physiology and its application in sports practice has meant a great advance in the knowledge of nutritional requirements in mountaineering. Joana García, expert in nutrition, will reveal all these keys applied to hiking, trekking, high-level mountaineering, marches, races, ascents …
