Food Is Medicine

The Aspen Institute reports:

“The United States faces an unabating chronic disease epidemic, leading to skyrocketing health care costs and devastating effects for individuals, communities, and the nation. The connection between chronic disease and nutrition is undeniable; nutrition not only plays a role in the onset of disease but also its prevention, management, and treatment. Efforts that involve a health care response to the need for better nutrition fall under the umbrella term ‘Food Is Medicine.’ An emerging body of research demonstrates the enormous promise of Food Is Medicine interventions across a range of health conditions in improving health and quality of life, while also curbing health care costs.”
