Research output: Contribution to journalOnline ResourceProfessional


Major changes in human diet and nutrition have occurred over the last 1,000 years. The nutritional environment that individuals are exposed to today is far different from the environment that humans are predisposed to live in. Human nutrition has moved from a hunter-gatherer dietary pattern compromising of freshly foraged fruits, vegetables, seeds, and nuts to a modern day diet characterised by high intakes of processed carbohydrates such as cereals and grains, saturated fats, salt and refined sugars. This change in diet has resulted in large spikes in illnesses directly linked to poor diet such as obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and cancer.
