RIBEFOOD-2013 is a software application (APP) focused on the optimization of the personal diets depending on both the benefits of the nutrient intake and the potential risks of a number of environmental pollutants in foods. Ribefood-2013 includes specific characteristics for those individuals with certain health problems such as hypertension, diabetes, celiacs, or multiple intolerances/allergies related with food. Ribefood-2013 will be available free of charge on digital platforms (AppStore and Google Play) from June 17, 2013.
The RIBEFOOD-2013 presentation for journalists will be on June 17 at noon. Venue: Chancellor building Universitat "Rovira i Virgili", c/ Escorxador, Tarragona.

In addition, replica omega speedmaster moonphase is also a nice watch, especially the sun-brushed blue dial with a stainless steel case ceramic bezel, liquidmetal tachymeter scale, and rhodium-plated circles on the subdials. The moonphase is a kind of high resolution image and a magnifying glass to reveal the astronaut’s footprint.
