96 pages including references. The human body comes with many mechanisms, checks and balances, and this ensures you get adequate nutrition, as long as it is provided with enough variety. Optimal nutrition leads to good health and quality of life, whereas under-nutrition has an effect on brain development, immunity and disease. There is now such a wide variety of food available and much of this food is already prepared for you, but not all of the food available is produced with optimum nutrition in mind. This book will give you information about the food you are eating and what foods will help to keep you healthy. No matter whether you are young and healthy, or older and starting to be concerned about the way your health is going, improving your current and future health prospects just by changing what you eat is achievable. Naturally, diet alone is not sufficient to improve your health, and if you combine a healthier diet with physical activity, the benefits gained will start to be their own incentive.
