Want to be HEALTHY?

Who doesn’t! It’s easy. You just need the right information and dedication.

According to WHO, nutrition is a critical part of your health. Without proper nutrition knowledge, you cannot decide what you should eat and whatnot.

Health is wealth,

For this reason, I launched NutritionCrown. NutritionCrown is a place for scientific evidence-based nutrition information that you can trust.

Nutrition Definition

Nutrition is a biological process of consuming foods to fulfill the dietary needs of your body.

In other words, nutrition is a science that studies the relationship between food and health (diseases) to seek the well-being and preservation of human health.

Nutritionist

Good nutrition (a balanced diet combined with regular physical exercise) is important for your body to function properly.

Poor nutrition can reduce immunity, increase vulnerability to disease, impair physical and mental growth, and reduce productivity.

Nutrient imbalance, either through excess or lack, can cause health issues. According to the Center for Science in the Public Interest, poor nutrition contributes to 678,000 deaths each year only in the US. (Source)

One of the main reasons for this is the lack of proper nutritional knowledge.

Nutrition Knowledge

Nutrition knowledge is essential to prevent malnutrition and most chronic diseases. These nutrition-related diseases exist in many countries.

Good vs Bad carbs

Let me show you some nutrition facts:

  • Roughly 2 billion people (about 30% of the world population) are affected by micronutrient deficiencies. (Source)
  • More than 1.9 billion adults (18 years or above) are overweight, of which more than 600 million are obese. (Source)
  • More than 38 million children (under five years old) are overweight. (Source)
  • More than 17 million people are dying every year from cardiovascular diseases. (Source)
  • Roughly 6.7 million people are dying every year, from insufficient fruit and vegetable consumption. (Source)

According to FOA “To avoid a crushing economic and social burden in the next 15 to 20 years, countries need to educate their people about eating the right foods – not just more or less food. People need to know what constitutes a healthy diet and how to make good food choices.”

Nutrition knowledge is applicable in every stage of life. It promotes healthy eating habits, which will make a nutritional culture.

Good nutrition culture will keep you healthy and happy.

NutritionCrown is my little effort to educate you about nutrition.
