The Institute of Health Metrics and Evaluation at the University of Washington are carrying out one of the largest studies into global eating habits, titled the Global Burden of Disease. Taking data from every country in the world, the survey reveals that after smoking, DIET is the second highest risk factor for early death.Some of the other high risks, such as high blood pressure and cholesterol, could also be attributed to poor diet. The study reveals a lot about how eating habits have an effect on our health, and what factors can be used to help us eat healthier. However even though we know that DIET or GOOD NUTRITION is the right way to go, it is the nutrition messages that are inherently “noisy”, with an abundance of specific – and often contradictory – advice available through advertising, media and well-intentioned family and friends. We’re constantly hearing new messages about food from sources that lack credibility, and these messages create confusion about what it means to have a healthy diet.
Its best to advice of a QUALIFIED Nutritionist or Dietitian and seek the right mandate for your choices of food based on your Culture, age, gender, blood tests and Nutrition gene tests.
