Impact of Dietary Quality and Nutrition on General Health Status
Dietary excesses and inadequate physical activity increase risk of obesity and chronic diseases including cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and some cancers
Protein energy malnutrition, nutritional anemia, nonalcoholic liver disease, and osteoporosis are associated with nutrient deficiencies that increase risk of oral diseases and conditions
Government, health agencies, and health foundations define dietary guidelines and patterns supported by evidence-based research and presented in formats to increase health promotion and disease prevention
Oral health care professionals and nutrition professionals can participate in healthcare teams to provide nutrition education and counseling to promote optimum oral health
