“Nutrition as Medicine of Tomorrow” Conference

Within the conference, more than talking about football or nutrition in sports, the focus was on health and what humans experience every day in choosing food and what is its impact on health.

Thus began the nutritionist’s lecture.

This vision is a starting point for nutrition as the medicine of the future.

Heart disease, obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular accidents, and certain cancers, among other non-communicable diseases, collectively account for 63 percent of annual deaths. It is estimated that by 2030, these diseases will be responsible for 52 million annual deaths worldwide. Deaths that can be avoided by making lifestyle changes.

These types of non-communicable diseases have different risk factors, such as an unhealthy diet, tobacco use, excess alcohol, lack of physical activity, and air pollution, among others.

Numerous studies show that regular physical activity is ideal for maintaining a healthy body weight. Not smoking, following the right dietary practices, has a critical impact on health.

Even from all of this knowledge, the term “lifestyle medicine” has been incorporated to help reduce the risks associated with lifestyle factors.
