Diet and Disease

Quality nutrition forms the basis of human health. Without a steady stream of the key nutrients the human body needs, it cannot and will not function efficiently. Just as positive dietary choices contribute to better health, the opposite is true at the other end of the scale. When taken to extremes, poor nutrition can increase an individual’s likelihood of developing dangerous, even deadly diseases. However, it often takes just a few simple lifestyle changes to take everyday health and disease resistance to a much higher level. Approached proactively, nutrition can be the most powerful defensive weapon against many of the world’s most common diseases and chronic conditions.
