Nutrition

Nutrition is the study of nutrients in food, how the body uses them, and the relationship between diet, health, and disease.


Nutritionists use ideas from molecular biology, biochemistry, and genetics to understand how nutrients affect the human body.


Nutrition also focuses on how people can use dietary choices to reduce disease risk, what happens when a person has too much or too little of a nutrient, and how allergies work.


Nutrients provide nutrition. Protein, carbohydrates, fat, vitamins, minerals, fiber, and water are all nutrients. When people don't have the right balance of nutrients in their diet, the risk of developing certain health problems increases.
