WHAT STARTS HERE CHANGES THE WORLD
The COVID-19 crisis will deal a severe blow to global output compared to pre-pandemic projections, holding back living standard improvements across all countries, the latest IMF World Economic Outlook shows
The Global Council on Brain Health (GCBH) examined the state of science on the impact diet has on brain health in adults age 50 and older. GCBH experts carefully considered what can be confidently concluded about whether and how dietary patterns and food choices influence brain health. The new report provides specific recommendations on which foods to encourage, include or limit in adults’ diets. The GCBH gives people 12 practical tips to incorporate healthy eating habits to help maintain brain health.
It has long been suspected that the relative abundance of specific nutrients can affect cognitive processes and emotions. Newly described influences of dietary factors on neuronal function and synaptic plasticity have revealed some of the vital mechanisms that are responsible for the action of diet on brain health and mental function. Several gut hormones that can enter the brain, or that are produced in the brain itself, influence cognitive ability.
We need to ensure sustainable and healthy diets for all, and to minimize food waste," the UN chief said in a message for the World Food Day, which falls on Oct. 16.
Before COVID-19 hit, obesity and overweight were linked to an estimated 5 million deaths per year worldwide. Now, obesity and overweight seem to have worsened the threat of COVID-19, which has killed approximately 1,119,268 people around the world as of October 13, 2020.
POOR NUTRITION AND PREVENTABLE CHRONIC DISEASE
Good nutrition is essential for keeping populations healthy across the lifespan. A healthy diet helps children grow and develop properly and reduces their risk of chronic diseases, including obesity. Adults who eat a healthy diet live longer and have a lower risk of obesity, heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and certain cancers. Healthy eating can help people with chronic diseases manage these conditions and prevent complications.
And, because the capsules used in the trial contain only natural food products, they should reach shop shelves much quicker than a synthetic drug would once approved. “Instead of spending 20 years doing efficacy and safety and toxicology with a synthetic drug, we're able to get something onto the market, hopefully much faster than that.”
“I don't really see that many downsides. Obviously, it's not a miracle, there's no such thing. But if people can lose about 13 per cent of their weight, that's going from a Body Mass Index (BMI) of obese to a BMI of overweight, which reduces your chances of colon cancer by 20 times. That's a very significant saving for the NHS, and it saves lives.”
The food we eat gives our bodies the "information" and materials they need to function properly. If we don't get the right information, our metabolic processes suffer and our health declines.
Evidence suggests that neglecting the importance of adequate nutrition in chronically ill patients has far-reaching implications on the health status of the individual and the health care costs.
Health Care Cost Reductions Related to Medically Tailored Nutrition
Good nutrition is an essential part of an individual’s defence against Covid-19. Nutritional resilience is a key element of a society’s readiness to combat the threat. Focusing on nutritional well-being provides opportunities for establishing synergies between public health and equity, in line with the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
