Diet and the Prevention of Chronic Disease

Diet and Chronic Disease

Poor diet is a major contributor to the leading causes of chronic disease and death in the United States, including coronary heart disease, diabetes, hyperlipidemia, and stroke. In addition, recent data from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey show that more than 30% of adults in the United States are obese and that the prevalence of overweight and obesity combined is approximately 70%.


Lifestyle factors, especially healthy dietary practices that influence these trends, have a low level of adherence. Although it is true that the obesity and chronic disease epidemics have complicated origins, the contribution of our current society’s easy access to highly processed foods and low consumption of fresh and whole foods cannot be overemphasized. At the turn of the millennium, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance Survey showed that less than 25% of Americans consumed the recommended amount of fruits and vegetables and equally few were as physically active as was recommended. More recent studies have not shown much improvement in the low prevalence of healthy lifestyle practices
