Today, chronic disease afflicts 15 million people in the UK who are spending 20% of their lives in poor health.
In the book The Nutrition Gap and Its Impact on Our Health you will find an extensive guide which identifies and explains the Nutrition Gap, the many contributing factors, and how these impact on our health. The book explores the evidence that links the Nutrition Gap to the rise in chronic degenerative diseases in the Western world and looks at possible solutions to solving what is described as a ‘global epidemic’.
The term “Nutrition Gap” first came into use in the 1990’s as a way of describing the shortfall of essential nutrients that, for many reasons, was prevailing in the Western world.
Nutrient shortfalls are caused by multiple factors, and this means that most people are not getting the level of essential nutrients needed for health and protection on a daily basis. This deficit impacts adversely on both immediate and long-term health.
