Many researchers now believe that chronic health problems, such as depression, diabetes, and heart disease are related to diet. While they used to believe that these health conditions were vastly caused by a single gene mutation, they are now generally attributing them to a network of biological dysfunction. And the food we eat is an important factor that in dysfunction, in part because our diets lack the necessary balance of nutrients. (Proceedings of the Nutrition Society, 2012)

FOOD AS MEDICINE:
THE IMPACT OF NUTRITION TO HEALTH & HEALING
In our society today we are bombarded with information about "healthy eating," but we currently suffer from the higher rates of obesity and chronic disease than ever before. We are told one year to avoid fats and next year to avoid carbohydrates. Unfortunately, this has lead many to distrust nutritional advice altogether, particularly anything which claims "food as medicine'.
The food we eat gives our bodies the "information" and materials they need to function properly. If we lack the right information, our metabolic processes suffer and our health declines. If we get too much of the wrong foods, or food that gives our bodies the wrong instructions, we can become overweight, undernourished, and at risk for the development of diseases and conditions, such as arthritis, diabetes, and heart disease.
