The importance of good nutrition is nothing new. Back in 400 B.C., Hippocrates said, "Let food be your medicine and medicine be your food" and the famous analogy “You are what you eat” is more than just a catchy phrase your mother used to get you to eat right. It’s a profound truth. From the Stone Age to the Industrial Age, people have recognized the healthful properties of certain foods. And now, in the age of information, the importance of nutrition is so well recognized and supported by scientific evidence that virtually every major public health organization in the world makes dietary recommendations. The link between good nutrition and disease prevention is similarly strong, The major causes of death in the UK - heart disease, cancer, stroke and diabetes — are directly related to an individuals nutrition and as such their chances of occurrence can be greatly reduced by changing the way we eat. Of course, food alone isn't the key to a longer and healthier life. Good nutrition should be part of an overall healthy lifestyle, which also includes regular exercise, not smoking or drinking alcohol excessively, stress management and limiting exposure to environmental hazards. And no matter how well you eat, your genes play a big part in your risk for certain health problems. But don't underestimate the influence of how and what you eat, good nutrition is the cornerstone of a healthy and long existence.
