Nutrition is an important lifestyle factor that contributes to our general feeling well.
Recently, it has even further suggested, based on a number of epidemiological studies,
that our diet is also associated with the risk of developing a number of chronic
diseases, such as diabetes type II, cardiovascular diseases, osteoporosis, many types of
cancer, just to name few. Thus, a balanced nutrition is firmly interwoven with many
aspects of our long-term health, including the prevention of diseases, albeit this is
typically rather associated with the medicinal areas.
