Even with current knowledge of the role of food and nutrients on health, there are more chronic diseases than ever, such as cancer and cardiovascular diseases, as well as obesity. It is known that proper nutrition and food choices can improve or reduce incidences of some of these chronic diseases. However, it is also true that nutritional changes have not been implemented properly enough to impact the overall health of the general population. Thus we need to develop better strategies for improving our own health. This course will explore potentially innovative approaches to this issue through understanding food, the food supply, and social and environmental modifications.
