Excessive consumption of specific foodstuffs

Experimental visualization of narrower problems

In industrialized countries, the major nutritional problems arise from dietary practices begun in early childhood that are based on an excessive consumption of, for example, animal fats, refined sugar and salt. These practices, continued for a lifetime, may lead to a number of disorders such as heart disease, hypertension, obesity, and possibly some types of cancer. Many developing countries are increasingly experiencing the same type of disorders.
