Impact of modern nutrition on health

Looking back a few decades, you'll see that our way of life has changed so dramatically that we no longer give any care to whether or not what we consume is healthy. In today's world, high-calorie junk foods that are pumped with chemical additives, over-processed, or loaded with sugar have largely replaced locally grown, fresh vegetables. Unfortunately, your health has been jeopardised as a result of your bad eating habits. Despite the fact that food and nutrition have been studied for millennia, nutritional science is still relatively new. In 1926, less than 100 years ago, the first vitamin was extracted and chemically characterised, kicking off a half-century of research into single-nutrient deficient illnesses. Nutritional research on complicated non-communicable chronic diseases like cardiovascular disease, diabetes, obesity, and malignancies is even more recent, having accelerated in the last two or three decades, particularly around 2000.
