Why Choose Our Online Nutrition Courses?
Diet and nutrition refers to the study of human health in accordance with the key nutrients found in food. Extensive scientific research has provided the world with a basic blueprint for good health, based entirely around balanced diet and exercise. Nevertheless, evidence suggests that the vast majority of people fail to follow nutritional guidelines with any real consistency. In addition, few realise what constitutes healthy dietary choices and why these differ enormously from one demographic to the next.
Poor dietary choices have long been associated with ill health. However, it is only as of relatively recently that studies have shown just how dangerous inadequate nutrition can be. From cancer to heart disease to diabetes and even depression, what we choose to eat and not eat has a direct impact on every aspect of wellbeing. Nutrition lies at the very heart of human health and all key bodily processes, though is a subject the public in general often struggles to understand.
Growing awareness of the importance of nutrition has triggered a worldwide explosion in demand for the services of qualified nutritionists. For the benefit of their own health and often that of their families, more people than ever before are proactively seeking dietary advice and assistance. What’s more, nutritionists are playing a more direct role than ever before in caring for patients with a wide variety of illnesses.
Professionals bodies with which qualified nutritionists may choose to seek membership include the Association for Nutrition (AfN), the Federation of Nutritional Therapy Practitioners (FNTP), the British Association for Applied Nutrition and Nutritional Therapy (BANT)and the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC).
