How important is nutrition?
Our body is made, repaired and run on the nutrients we get from food so from a health point of view good nutrition is essential.
Amazingly from a health perspective in the past nutrition has been disregarded as a major influence but now with such a rapid rise in obesity and other health related conditions such as diabetes and heart disease the effects of a poor diet is undeniable. More >
Nutrition in todays world
Diet related conditions have risen dramatically over the last few decades and the big finger is pointing at the increased accessibility to cheaper food. But is not just about the cost it’s also about the type of food we are eating. Obviously people would rather eat chips and cakes than vegetables not just because we believe them to taste better but because they involve little preparation. In today’s world convenience is king and modern lifestyles are perceived as not conducive to healthy living.
Fad diets and nutritional claims lacking in scientific substance bombard the population and even when the science is there it can be cherry picked to prove a point or make a story. It is funny how there are hundreds of unreported studies already showing the benefits of eating more veg but if a single one comes out on chocolate or alcohol suggesting a heath benefit it makes the front page. There are so much contradictory and confusing dietary messages out there and consumers have lost confidence and trust in the food industry. More >
However there is no reason why quick meals or convenience food cannot also contain natural, healthy ingredients. Healthy living and eating is simple and straightforward because at the end of the day humans need the same things they have always needed, lots of nutrition found in the natural foods we have always had growing around us. As we have become more removed from the food we eat, the difficulty now is how we adapt that to current lifestyles.
