Contemporary Nutrition

I will show examples three topics covered in Contemporary Nutrition was types. The first topic is the different types of diets. There are so many diets on the market today. Learning the science beyond these diets will help differentiate the truth vs the fiction. The second topic is nutrition related to cardiovascular health. Poor nutrition can lead to a variety of heart related diseases and conditions. The third topic is the impact nutrition has on body composition. You are what you eat. Processed and sugary foods lead to obesity.

There are many resources online, within the community and at local hospitals. Income disparities directly impact the health of the community. Wealthier communities have less nutritional related health problems. Part of this is education, but the other part is access. The internet has opened the door for the lower income communities and government health initiatives are giving people more access.
