Everytime you eat or drink you are either feeding a disease or fighting a disease.
When an individual eat a healthful, balanced diet rich in fruits and vegetables it helps boost their immune health.
The immune system consists of organs, cells, tissues, and proteins. Together, these carry out bodily processes that fight off pathogens, which are the viruses, bacteria, and foreign bodies that cause infection or disease.
When the immune system comes into contact with a pathogen, it triggers an immune response. The immune system releases antibodies, which attach to antigens on the pathogens and kill them.
Adequate nutrition also supplies antioxidants to the body that reduce damage caused by free radicals by neutralising them.
Long term consumption of high calorie diet, which is enriched in high amounts of saturated fats, cholesterol, n-6 fatty acids, salt and low fibers produces obesity, insulin resistance, type-2 diabetes, and metabolic syndrome. This pathological condition is an important risk factor for heart disease, stroke, Alzheimer disease, and cancer.
We are what we eat. Eat right and stay healthy. Poor choice of food affects our health.
