Nutrition - forum with Physicians !

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
This article is about nutrition in general. For nutrition in humans, see human nutrition. For the medical journal, seeNutrition (journal).
The "Nutrition Facts" table indicates the amounts ofnutrients that experts recommend to limit or consume in adequate amounts.

Nutrition is the science that interprets the interaction of nutrientsand other substances in food (e.g. phytonutrientsanthocyanins,tannins, etc.) in relation to maintenance, growth, reproduction, health and disease of an organism. It includes food intake, absorption, assimilationbiosynthesiscatabolism and excretion.[1]

The diet of an organism is what it eats, which is largely determined by the availability, processing and palatability of foods. A healthy diet includes preparation of food and storage methods that preserve nutrients from oxidation, heat or leaching, and that reduce risk of food-born illnesses.

Registered Dietitians,"RDs" or "RDNs" (Registered Dietitian or Registered Dietitian Nutritionist)[2] are health professionals qualified to provide safe, evidence-based dietary advice which includes a review of what is eaten, a thorough review of nutritional health, and a personalized nutritional treatment plan. They also provide preventive and therapeutic programs at work places, schools and similar institutions. Certified Clinical Nutritionists or CCNs, are trained health professionals who also offer dietary advice on the role of nutrition in chronic disease, including possible prevention or remediation by addressing nutritional deficiencies before resorting to drugs.[3] Government regulation especially in terms of licensing, is currently less universal for the CCN than that of RD or RDN.

A poor diet may have an injurious impact on health, causing deficiency diseases such as scurvy[4] and kwashiorkor;[5]health-threatening conditions like obesity[6][7] and metabolic syndrome;[8] and such common chronic systemic diseases ascardiovascular disease,[9][10] diabetes,[11][12] and osteoporosis.[13][14][15]
