Nutrition can be defined as the science which deals with food & it is directly or indirectly related to health. Food plays a critical role in human health & treating some of the major disorders related to growth & healthy living. This field is concerned with role played by Nutrients in body growth, development & maintenance Nutrition is a significant provision of human life, health and growth through the entire life span. Good health is important to living a productive life and nutrition leads to a healthy life style promotion. Public Health Nutrition is a progressively significant inclination for people round the world. Nutrition & Wellness depends upon food, care, healthiness and atmosphere. Food safety and nutrition is of prime importance as unhealthy intake and nutritional deficiencies are the major causes of the deaths. Under nutrition is predominantly injurious in early age groups i.e. infancy and over nutrition in adulthood and after-years but both the forms are likely to disturb all age groups.

Nutrition and food science have each improved the expansion of an abundant, nutritious, safe food supply. A healthy diet should comprise of all of the obligatory nutrients and adequate calories to balance energy spending and provide for growth and maintenance thru the life cycle. Significantly, dietary factors are linked with 5 of the 10 leading causes of death, counting coronary heart disease, certain types of cancer, stroke, noninsulin dependent diabetes mellitus and atherosclerosis. Nutrition is essential for Healthy Life Style Promotion and progression over the whole life expectancy. Great wellbeing is critical to carrying on with a profitable life, addressing vital needs and adding to group life, Nutrition stimuli to a Healthy way of life advancement. Importance of Food and Nutrition in Health is an inevitably essential preference for populations round the globe. Sustenance is gradually concerned with metabolic methods and digestion system, the organization of biochemical paces through which substances among living life forms change starting with one edge then onto the next.

Nutritional science is the study of how an organism is nourished, and includes the study of Nutrition and metabolism. Nutritional science shelters a wide spectrum of disciplines. Nutrients must be obtained from diet, since the human body does not synthesize them and are used to generate energy, notice and respond to environmental surroundings, move, excrete wastes, respire. Healthy food habit is becoming ever more of a science, with new research showing us which foods may decrease our risk of disease, and which are progressively pointed to as the culprits behind ill health. Researchers are looking to better recognise how nutrients work in our bodies, with studies that investigate the diets of people with heart disease, cancer, and other diseases, along with research aimed at helping people to lose weight, or maintain weight loss. There are various classes of nutrients such as carbohydrates, lipids, proteins, water, vitamins, and minerals which are required for the body to function and maintain overall health.

It also includes Nutritional requirements in infants & children and various caring practices. Due to deficiency of nutrition particularly during critical ages of growth, causes improper development or major illness, such as anaemia due to the deficiency of iron or scurvy due to lack of vitamin C. Nutrition plays a critical role in childhood development, which results in both good or bad. Proper nutrition helps in the appropriate growth and development of children allowing them to reach their complete potential.

The body needs different vitamins and minerals that are vital for both body development and preventing illness. These vitamins and minerals are called micronutrients. They aren’t manufactured naturally within the body; they are acquired through the intake of proper diet. Nutritional deficiency rises when the body is unable to absorb the vital amount of nutrients. Malnutrition occurs when the body is not getting adequate amount of the nutrients. Nutritional Lacks lead to a variety of Mental Disorders and Depression.
Nutritional deficiencies can be of different types-

Food Safety and standards include handling, preparation, and storage of food in order to prevent food borne illness. This includes a number of procedures that should be followed to avoid severe health hazards. Food safety is taking care of, arrangement storage and hoarding of nourishment in ways that avoid food borne disease or potential contamination and spoilage.

Nutrition critically helps in the recovery of cancer patients. Clinical studies have highlighted the Importance of Nutrition in Cancer Care. Clinical nutrition plays an important part in keeping healthy nutrition balance in patients. Cancer treatment can affect one's diet, and dietary changes can deteriorate other treatment related symptoms. For example, cancer patients who experience chemosensory modifications, distorted taste, and increased sensitivity to smells because of the cancer itself or as a side effect of treatment those are more prone to higher levels of weight loss, decreased energy intake, and poorer quality of life. An unexpectedly high number of patients undergoing cancer treatment report alterations to their sense of taste & smell. It has been estimated that if diet, physical activity and weight management are compounded together then 30% of the cancers could be prevented.

Nutritional Therapy complies nutrition science in the advancement of healthy lifestyle. Renowned nutritionists use a wide range of tools to assess and recognize possible nutritional imbalance and understand how these may cause for an individual’s symptoms and health concerns. Nutritional Therapy comprises of food that prevent and reverse diseases that affect most western societies: diabetes, obesity, heart disease, arthritis, and depression. In order to make food therapeutic, it must be nutrient-dense, measured in part by the nutrients and anti-nutrients, contained in consumed foods.

The epidemic of childhood obesity is no longer restricted to high-income countries and has become one of the most significant global health problems of the 21th century. The World Health Organization (WHO) experts have assessed that there are 43 million overweight children under the age of 5 and by 2020 more than 60% of global disease burden will be the result of obesity related disorders. Childhood obesity is connected with several short term and long-term health hazards such as cardiovascular diseases, hypertension, type 2 diabetes, fatty liver disease, orthopedic problems, low self-esteem, etc. Childhood obesity can reduce life expectancy by 2-5 years. Moreover, the increasing trend of obesity has enormous economic outcomes. Nutrition deals with Obesity and its Treatment, weight management tips, and obesity related disorders.

Plant nutrition is amongst the major divisions of nutritional science. Its main focus is on foods derived from plant sources. The field of Plant Nutrition provides Genetically Modified Crops which helps in prevention of numerous diseases. Nutraceuticals are derived from food sources which help to provide an additional health benefits. A nutraceutical may be defined as a substance, which has physiological benefits or helps in the prevention of major chronic diseases. Nutraceuticals may be used to improve health, delay the aging process, increase life expectancy, or support the structure or function of the body. Nowadays, nutraceuticals have received considerable interest due to potential nutritional, safety and therapeutic effects.

Parenteral nutrition is a method of receiving nutrition into body through veins. Various Methods of delivering parenteral nutrition are there which are helpful in transportation of nutrients such as sugar, carbohydrates, proteins and trace elements to the body. These nutrients are important in maintaining high energy, hydration, and strength. Some people only need to get certain types of nutrients intravenously as they are suffering from various diseases like Cohn’s disease, ischemic bowel disease etc. Some side effects are also there e.g. changes in heartbeat, confusion, convulsions or seizures, difficulty breathing, fast weight gain or weight loss, fatigue, fever or chills, increased urination, jumpy reflexes, memory loss, muscle twitching, weakness, or cramps, stomach pain, vomiting.
