Why Is Nutrition Important?
Nutrition and health are closely related. Your food choices affect you today, tomorrow and ongoing. Making the right food choices in the short term can make you feel better on a daily basis. But not just that, it can make a huge difference for your future. According to www.Health.gov, About half of all American adults—117 million individuals—have one or more preventable chronic diseases, many of which are related to poor quality eating patterns and physical inactivity. These include cardiovascular disease, high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, some cancers, and poor bone health.
