Coffee radio network
The widespread FNC coffee radio network is the key communication tool for transmitting timely, relevant and effective messages to the Colombian coffee-growing families. It includes the nationwide radio programs Coffee Panorama and The Adventures of Professor Yarumo, which are broadcast through 54 stations of the National Radio of Colombia, as well as Yarumadas and Excelsos, which are broadcast through the 69 radio programs of the departmental coffee grower committees.
TV and YouTube programs
With almost 25 years of activities, The Adventures of Professor Yarumo is considered the educational-recreational TV program with the greatest impact on Colombian coffee growers and farmers in general, highlighting the civic, social and moral values of rural producers.
This TV show, which airs on Saturdays at 7:30 p.m. and on Sundays at 6:00 p.m. on the institutional channel is a didactic, recreational and information program with a pedagogical purpose: to motivate and inform the coffee-growing families, and the country in general, about progressive practices promoted by the FNC.
Through daily teachings and stories about the countryside and its people, our Professor Yarumo seeks to raise awareness about preservation of our natural resources and to highlight cultural expressions of the different Colombian regions.
Over 1,300 programs capture in their images the national coffee reality and that of other geographical, economic and natural regions where Colombian wealth and beauty can be appreciated.
According to a study by Northwestern University of Chicago The peer-reviewed study was published in the monthly (online) journal on human nutrition Nutrients. Bogotá, July 22, 2021 (FNC Press Office) – Daily consumption of 2-3 cups of coffee is associated with a lower incidence of covid-19, according to a peer-reviewed study published in the monthly (online) journal on human nutrition Nutrients. The study Dietary Behaviors and Incident COVID-19 in the UK Biobank had almost 38,000 eligible UKB participants aged 40-70, of which 17% tested positive for covid-19. The results of the model showed that the odds of testing positive for covid-19 was 0.90 (that is, down 10% from 1) when consuming 2-3 cups of coffee/day (vs. less than 1 cup/day). These results are very similar for those having been breastfed (0.91) versus not having been breastfed. Consumption of vegetables showed an even lower odds of incidence (0.88), while intake of processed meats was adversely associated (1.14). All these results led to the conclusion that consumption of coffee and vegetables and having been breastfed are favorably associated with a lower incidence of covid-19. The researchers assumed that nutritional status influences immunity, but its specific association with susceptibility to covid-19 remains unclear. The study also concluded that certain dietary behaviors may be an additional tool to existing covid-19 protection guidelines to limit the spread of the virus. Study methodology Researchers from Northwestern University, Chicago, USA, examined the association of specific dietary data…
