Nutrition Expert Witnesses
Approximately, 678,000 people die each year from an unhealthy diet. Poor nutrition and obesity related diseases contribute to heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and cancer. In the last thirty years, obesity has doubled in adults, tripled in children, and quadrupled in adolescents. Good nutrition is an important part of a healthy diet. Food contains micronutrients including protein, carbohydrates, and fat that provide calories, that fuel the body, and gives it energy. The typical American eats too many saturated fats, calories, added sugars, and sodium, but does not eat enough fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and fiber.
